How Ski Passes Work in Portes Du Soleil?
Your Portes du Soleil ski pass operates similarly to other ski passes in the European Alps. Upon completing the payment for your ski pass, your entry to the area will be electronically loaded onto a plastic card. This card operates akin to a typical payment card, allowing access through either a swipe or other standard card functions.

It's essential to carry your ski pass whenever you're skiing, as it's required to access the lifts by scanning or swiping it at the turnstiles and barriers. To facilitate activation, you can conveniently store the pass in the pockets of your jacket sleeves or front pockets for seamless scanning. Additionally, some skiers opt to wear their passes on lanyards for quick and effortless access.
