Peak Ohio Pass FAQs

SEASON PASS, Peak Pass AND RFID FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

As always if you don't see the answer to your particular question you can always email us at info@skimadriver.com or call our office 800-231-7669 during normal business operating hours.

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.

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 attendant 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 this year we will be unrolling online lift ticket, rental, and lesson sales in advance of your visit.

IF I UPGRADE TO A PEAK PASS IS THAT GOOD IMMEDIATELY ON THE EAST COAST?  

YES!  Your Peak Pass just like any season pass purchased in the spring will be valid immediately and you'll be able to ski at any of the 11 resorts the minute you get your pass.  

Are East coast peak resorts rfid enabled as well?  

NO BUT YOUR PASS IS STILL DIRECT TO LIFT.  You may have noticed that your Peak Pass features a barcode which is scanned at the lift. You will just need to show your pass or have it visible on your jacket/pants while skiing / riding on the East.  

if i don't buy a peak pass will the ski the east offer lodging offer be available in 18/19?

NO. The Ski The East lodging offer to Hunter, Mount Snow and Attitash will no longer be offered after the 17/18 ski season.  

DOES THE PEAK PASS include $10 value passes?

NO. The Peak Pass does not include any $10 value passes but it has a ton of other benefits to the Eastern Ski Resorts.  See Benefits Here.  

do our ohio based gift cards work out on the east coast?  

YES!  All Peak Gift Cards no matter what area they are purchased through are valid at any Peak Resort owned and operated outlet.  Keep in mind there are a few vendor outlets (like Waffle Cabins etc) that are not owned by the resorts and therefore Gift Cards are not valid at those areas.  They are very minimal. 

IF I DON'T BUY A PEAK PASS WILL THE SKI THE EAST OFFER LODGING OFFER BE AVAILABLE IN 18/19?

NO.  The Ski The East lodging offer to Hunter, Mount Snow and Attitash will no longer be offered after the 17/18 ski season.  The Peak Passes will allow those who purchase the opportunity to visit at anytime during the season and the Peak Pass do come with certain added value benefits such as 20% off all lodging!  For more information about benefits click here.  ‚Äč
