When purchasing a lift ticket or pass from the resort, you will be given a Park City Mountain Resort access card at the same time. The access card is a plastic card with a Radio Frequency ID (RFID) chip inside. Once loaded with a valid ticket/pass, the access card will open the gates at the bottom of each lower mountain lift as the skier/rider passes through. If the ticket/pass has been used or is expired, the RFID chip can be reused by Park City Mountain Resort or reloaded with another valid ticket/pass.
Access gates will be located at all of our lower mountain entry lifts including PayDay, Crescent, First Time, 3 Kings and Eagle. (Also Town and Silver Star) You can simply place your access card in a pocket by itself. Please approach the access gate one at a time and allow the Radio Frequency scanners to automatically scan and read the transmission from the card. It will read your card through your jacket. A valid card will open the gates and allow you access. DO NOT carry more than one Park City Mountain Resort access card at a time, as all access cards in your pocket could be scanned.
Please note: Fast Tracks lanes are still available at Park City Mountain Resort’s 5 busiest lifts and will use the same access card and access gate technology.
Tickets and passes purchased from 3rd party vendors are not eligible for re-load.
Reload is currently available via:

How to wear You can wear the Park City Mountain Resort access card anywhere on your person. You do not need to remove the access card from your pocket for scanning. PLEASE keep the Park City Mountain Resort access card away from credit cards, cell phones, iPods, aluminum gum wrappers, avalanche beacons and all other electronic devices that may interfere with signal transmission. (Many winter jackets have a small pocket or sleeve in the arm of the jacket or around the waistline. These pockets are specifically designed for RFID cards.)
Please do not put a hole in the Park City Mountain Resort access card for any reason. This will likely disable the card due to damage to the RFID chip or antenna.
Children of all ages riding the lifts must have their own valid Park City Mountain Resort access card. Including children 6 & under skiing for free. Children must go through the RFID gate by themselves and not at the same time as an adult.
Please do not push the access gates as this could cause damage. Damaging the gates will result in loss of skiing and riding privileges.
Keep your Park City Mountain Resort access card to re-load on your next visit, drop it in one of the access card recycling bins located in the Resort Plaza, or return it to any ticket office location.
Lanyards – Park City Mountain Resort Lanyards and plastic sleeves that can hold your ticket or pass are available for sale at the Resort Services Office in the Resort Plaza.
