16/17 Pass FAQ's

Since this season we'll be unrolling a brand new way to ski or snowboard here at Paoli Peaks with the new RFID Direct to Slope Technology we thought it would be good to give you some answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.  As always if you don't see the answer to your particular question you can always email us at or call our office 812-723-4696 during normal business operating hours.

Important Passholder and RFID Info
  • Your season pass must be with you at all times while you are on the slopes. 
  • Carry your RFID pass card in an empty torso pocket, separately from your cell phone and other electronic devices.
  • Only carry one RFID pass with you. Other Paoli Peaks passes and other RFID enabled items will interfere.
  • Your pass should come with a hole punched in it. If not, only punch a hole in the designated section (black rectangle, lower left corner)



What exactly is RFID Technology and how does it work for a season passholder (member) to walk onto a lift without a lift ticket?
RFID stands for Radio Frequency IDentification.  It is a tiny micro chip that will be embedded into your card.  This will transmit a small radio frequency signal out from the card that our lift attendants will be able to pick up with a scanning gun.  Just like a scanner at a grocery store that reads barcodes except a little more high tech.

What is the benefit to Paoli Peaks Pass Holders?
Hands free, hassle free direct lift access. No more waiting at the ticket windows! RFID tags are read by an antenna on our RFID scanners. This means you can keep your card in your pocket and do not have to show your pass card each time you load the lift. 

How will the Lift Attendant know it's me using my season pass? 
You will still be required to have your picture taken and/or submit one for the pass to be featured on your pass but when our scanners pick up your pass it will also transmit your name, picture, and any other information (rental, lessons, etc) to the screen on our scanning gun.  The lift attendent will then look at it to confirm it is you. 

Will non-passholders still be required to purchase lift tickets? 
Yes.  Lift tickets will still be sold on a daily basis and next year we will be unrolling online lift ticket, rental, and lesson sales in advance of your visit.

What do I do if I forget my pass or lose my pass?
If your forget to bring your season pass with you to Paoli Peaks, one (1) exception will be given but you must visit the ticket widow for a daily lift ticket. Accessing the slopes without your season pass will result in revocation of your season pass without refund.

Lost or stolen passes should be reported to the ticket window. Please refer to our Season Pass Terms & Conditions webpage for more information. A $50 administration fee may apply.
