RFID at Mt Seymour

Out with the old and in with the new!

For the 2019/2020 winter season, Mt Seymour was fitted to use an RFID ticket, pass and gate system to provide a faster and hands-free way to access our lifts!

All ski and snowboard guests will now receive an RFID ticket or pass which will be encoded with your purchased product and will allow you to pass through a gate to access the lifts.

RFID, or Radio Frequency Identification, uses a small circuit within the card to pass the specific information about your ticket/pass to the gate which will trigger it to open.


RFID Do's and Don'ts

  • DO keep your ticket/pass safe within a secure zipped pocket on your LEFT side
  • DO keep your ticket/pass between 24 to 48 inches from the snow so the gate can read your card
  • DO reuse your Season Pass or Day Ticket by renewing/reloading online to get direct-to-lift access for future visits and great savings!
  • DO be prepared to reveal your face (goggles up and face masks down) if requested by our staff. And don't forget to smile for our lane cameras!


  • DON'T carry any other items in the same pocket as your RFID ticket/pass, especially cell phones, bank cards or any aluminum material such as gum wrappers
  • DON'T carry more than one RFID ticket/pass at a time
  • DON'T punch a hole in your ticket/pass as this could damage the RFID antenna within the card, which could prevent your pass from working properly at the gate
