Where/how do you carry your lift pass?

This year I upgraded my four year old Nike snowboard jacket to a new Nike Van Paten in camo (last season's, so half price) which is just awesome.

However, I've lost the ski-pass pocket I had in the left forearm of my old jacket - which was a great feature! I just forgot it was there all week and waved my arm as I went through.

Why have they dropped this feature? Do many jackets have them? How do you guys carry your ski passes? (I usually go to the Alps, France or Austria)

Mine goes on a lanyard around my neck. They use barcode scanners at all our resorts, so it's got to be accesible. My SO has a clear pouch in her powder shirt but the scanner doesn't work well with it.

I loved the setup they had at Jay Peak. It was an RFID card and you just swipped your body near the sensor. Made it super fast to get on the lifts! I wish they'd do that out here...

My pow gloves (forget which model) have a little zip on the top, put pass in there and wave in front of barrier to get through.

RFID passes here so I just put it in the outer left pocket and zip it closed and I just walk past the machines and it reads it. I wanna try what the other guy above me said, as my glove also has the zip on the top for a hand warmer or to vent. Might just see if my pass fits in there and zip it closed.

I keep it in the safest pocket I have depending on what gear I'm wearing. My gear depends on the weather. And I make sure it's away from my phone. I've heard your phone can deactivate it. Anyone have that happen?

Are any of these barcode systems in Europe? I've only seen credit-card style ones before.

I guess my query really comes down to range. If I have one in my chest pocket, will it pick it up, or will I have to rub my chest along the machine?

And those lift pass holders which have a cable on, which I used to see about.. What are they all about?

RFID is awesome when it works, sucks when it does not cause I have to go digging for it.

my local slope uses a bar code system that they scan for you, so I just purchase an elastic arm band with a clear pouch, then put a piece of double sided tape on the pass and stick (literally) it in there. works pretty good minus if you wreck and it fills with snow
