Getting Your Pass

Sugarbush is equipped with a radio frequency identification (RFID) system at all base area lifts. All passholders will need an RFID-equipped SugarXpress Card with their season pass loaded on it.

Renewed Season Passes 

2019/20 Season Pass purchasers who have chosen to reload their 2018/19 SugarXpress Card online will be able to skip the ticket window and go directly to the lift.

First Time Pass Purchasers

2019/20 Season Pass purchasers who are receiving a SugarXpress Card for the first time must pick up their SugarXpress card at either Season Pass Office at Lincoln Peak or Mt. Ellen. If you already have purchased a product and retained your SugarXpress Card, you can see above to “renewed” section for directions.

New passholders will be required to take a photo for their season pass, which will be uploaded into the RFID system (photo will not appear on media but will be used to validate passholder in lift line). This can be done in our online store or at the resort.

Replacement Cards

There will be a $5 charge to replace a lost or forgotten SugarXpress Card. Cards can be replaced at either Season Pass Office at Lincoln Peak or Mt. Ellen. Unlike our past passes, the RFID chip technology is built into each card and is more costly to replace.


* Please note: all tickets products must be loaded onto a reloadable SugarXpress Card. If you do not already have a SugarXpress Card, one may be purchased for $5. Learn more about SugarXpress. Online tickets are non-refundable.
