Load Your RFID Sky CarD

All lift tickets must be loaded onto a reusable RFID Sky Card. If you already have a Sky Card, load your lift ticket onto the card at checkout, and you can head straight to the lifts without visiting the ticket window.

If you don't have your Sky Card yet, you will be able to purchase one during the lift ticket checkout process. You can opt to have it mailed to you, or pick it up at our Sky Card Express Boxes on-resort. Simply use the machine to scan the QR code in your confirmation email and it will print out your Sky Card loaded with your lift tickets. New Sky Cards can also be picked up at Basecamp, Mountain Services, or Madison Village Mountain Sports & Services.
