Many resorts are switching to RFIDs and I think scanners are on their way out. I don't see it being practical out on the hill either especially if you have to take your gloves/mitts off to access your phone to pull out the barcode.
I fucking love mobile ticketing for airlines and fastfood/coffee but those are always used in warm indoor places.
Is the idea of this to have your pass on your phone? So you'd have to take out your phone every time you got on the lift...Seems like an accident waiting to happen, and cold days etc...Unless I'm missing something here.
Took the survey. Some issues that come to mind - poor self phone service in the area, phones freezing, inconvenience to skier, added liability to resort. Given the option, I would prefer to have a lift ticket.
I hate to say it man but it'll never work. What could be cool is having a cellphone case that had an RFID chip in it that you could put your pass on etc...But I mean they already tell you to keep your cell away from your pass if it is RFID for scanning so I don't really see that being an option either.
