Oh ok so it really doesnt matter where you have it? I know on their website it says to carry it on your chest but this must be for the Tahoe resorts....

make sure you don't have anything else in the pocket with the pass. Cell phone, credit card, keys etc. That can cause interference. One time I had a RFID lift ticket zip tied to my belt loop, I forgot I had an RFID season pass to another resort in my left hip pocket a few inches away. Gate wouldn't open no matter what I did. Liftie saw my ticket and screamed "Empty your pockets!!!" and out came the other pass and he glared at me!!! damn I felt dumb

readimag I had a season local pass for CO last year and just had it around my neck the whole time. Only had problems when someone new would try to work the scanners.

Anyone else had this problem?
RFID getting more common now... the have them at Squaw and Alpine Meadows here in Tahoe... but you can put them anywhere in your jacket/pants and the sensor still picks it up (the sensor is very long) if you lean into it.

Huh? I don't get it. If you've got RFID, why do you need it on your sleeve? My jacket has a lift pass holder on the INSIDE lining. RFID scanners should be able to read your pass from 0.5 - 1 meter away.
