Aspen ditching paper tickets for electronic system

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on September 29, 2009 12:13 pm

Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass have joined the non-paper-ticket revolution.  The days of a lift attendant punching a hole in your ticket are so 2008.  This season your ticket to ride will be a card pass implanted with a chip that will open up electronic gates to the lifts.  These electronic systems are already in use at places like Squaw Valley and Mountain High in California, and Park City Mountain Resort, Utah.

The ticketless revolution is part of $130 million in improvements over the past six seasons at Aspen Skiing Company’s four resorts.  It’s been money well spent with 11 new lifts, two gondolas, three new restaurants, and the Snowmass base village.

A friendly reminder that Aspen discounted passes are available until November 13th.  There are all different types of passes that suit your ski frequency needs.  Click here for more info.
