Notch Card

Notch Card

Your personal RFID card to access Smugglers' lifts, pools and other resort facilities!

Notch Card Image
The Notch Card is a RFID card that will replace our traditional paper lift ticket, season pass, badge or SmuggsPass ticket. You simply place the card in a pocket and when you are near one of the RFID enabled gates it will automatically open, as long as your card is loaded with the valid access product for that lift, pool, facility or family activity.

Where is Smugglers' using the RFID System?

We are using the RFID system at all of our mountain lifts, our Resort Waterparks: Mountainside Water Playground, Notchville Park, Courtside Pool and at the Ozone in the FunZone 2.0 Family Fun Complex. At times we will also check the cards at our other Resort facilities and family activities.

How do I get a Notch Card?

The Notch Card is available for purchase for a one-time fee of $5 plus 6% VT Sales Tax. You can purchase Notch Cards at the Ski & Ride Desk, Guest Services, or any of our Ticket Booths.

The card is reusable so you can enjoy Smugglers' services and facilities year-round by conveniently reloading your card on-line or at our point of sale locations.

Where do I carry my Notch Card?
  • PLACE the Notch Card in a pocket by itself.
  • CARRY only One RFID card at a time.
  • RELOAD and SAVE at www.smuggs.com/reload

The Notch Card should be carried in the "strike zone", which is located anywhere between your shoulders and knees. The Notch Card does not have to be removed to be read by the sensor.

The card should not be placed in the same pocket as your cell phone, iPod, or other electronic devices, near any aluminum gum wrappers or near another RFID Card. These may interfere with the transmission of the data and require you to move your card.
