The Cooper Key Card – RFID Lift Access
Personalized | Streamlined | Reloadable
Skiers and riders at Cooper will no longer have to wear lift tickets & passes outside their coats or fumble to pull them out at the lift line. The RFID card will scan through clothing and can be kept inside your pocket.
This technology will be personalized and reloadable. You will have a card with your name on it. All passes, lift tickets, rentals and lessons will be loaded onto one card simplifying the process. You will also be able to create a profile for yourself online and reload the card prior to your next visit.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is RFID?
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. It is a technology that uses radio waves to recognize people through a microchip and antenna. The antenna enables the chip to transmit the information to a reader. The reader converts the radio waves reflected back from the RFID tag into digital information.
Will there be a charge for the card?
The Cooper Key Card is included in your first purchase (season pass, XP pass, etc.) and it will be yours to load all your products onto. If you have a card from last season you can use it to load passes, tickets and rentals onto during the next season. If you lose your card, a replacement card will cost $25.
How do I reload the card?
There is a number on your Cooper Key Card that is associated with your unique guest profile and will allow you to purchase lift access online in advance of your visit and go direct-to-lift without stopping at the ticket window. No personal information is stored on individual RFID cards.
I purchased a season pass or XP pass online. When can I pick it up?
You will pick up your season pass or XP pass at the Guest Services desk just like past years. If you have uploaded your photo and signed your waiver online you will just have to pick it up. If not, they will take your photo, have you sign a waiver, print your pass and you will be on your way to the lift.
Where should I wear the Cooper Key Card?
The card can be in any pocket of your clothing. We recommend not placing the card in a pocket with other electronic/magnetic/RFID items such as credit cards, driver’s licenses, car keys, cell phones, etc. A good location would be to carry it by itself in a breast pocket.
Is it ok to punch a hole in the Cooper Key Card?
No. Holes could damage your RFID card. If your card is damaged you will need to purchase a replacement card.
