RFID

Boyne Mountain Resort now uses RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) gates and hand scanners at all lifts across the resort. This touch-free system means paper tickets are a thing of the past- you'll simply have one Go Card that you can reload with lift tickets throughout the season, or use your RFID-enabled 2021/22 Season Pass or Ikon Pass. 

How It Works

Step 1: Purchase Your Ticket

To get a day ticket, go to shop.boynemountain.com/lift-tickets to choose your date. Remember, prices go up as dates get closer, so get your tickets early for the best deal. After you check out, you'll receive a confirmation email with your QR code. If you purchased multiple tickets, there will be one QR code per ticket. Season Pass and Ikon Pass holders can skip this step- your pass is RFID ready.

Step 2: Pick up Your Go Card

When you get to the mountain, head to an Online Ticket Kiosk in the base area to get your Go Card. If you already have a season pass or Ikon Pass, you can skip this step. When it's time to ski or ride, place your Go Card in a jacket pocket, away from credit cards, cell phone, or other RFID-enabled tickets- chest or sleeve pockets are perfect. If you have a small child, you might need to give them a little boost to get their card scanned. It'll be adorable.

Step 3: Reload Your Go Card

Once you've gotten your Go Card, you can use it season after season- simply purchase your lift ticket online, and your Go Card will be automatically valid on the dates you purchased. There is a one-time $5 charge for the card itself, and if your card is lost or damaged, it's $5 for a replacement.

FAQs

  • A Go Card is a reusable RFID-enabled lift ticket. 

  • BOYNE Passes, Boyne Mountain Passes, and Ikon Passes are all RFID-enabled. Once you receive your pass in the mail, simply put it in your pocket- you're ready to ride the lift. 

  • No, a hole punch will break your Go Card. The RFID gates can pick up the chip through your jacket, so just zip it in and get on the lift. 

  • Your Go Card or season pass can be replaced for $5 per card at the Season Pass Window located across from the Mountain Express chairlift. Sorry, we can't replace Ikon Passes.  

  • Nope, you can reload your Go Card with multiple days and head straight to the lift.
