This year you will notice something different about the lift lines. Bear Creek has enhanced the guest experience by implementing RFID gates.This means no more showing your valid lift ticket or pass while in line. The gates you pass through will automatically read your valid ticket/pass to let you on the chair lift.
 
Important things to note:
1. Keep your lift ticket/pass preferably in a chest pocket (either R or L side is acceptable).
2. Keep your lift ticket/pass away from cell phones, wallet, cigarettes, and keys. It is suggested you keep the card in a pocket by itself.
3. Do Not punch a hole in your card or bend the card. Your ticket/pass will not be able to be scanned at the lifts and you will have to be issued a new one (fees may apply)

Restrooms and Changing Areascheck mark 250149
