    which worked well. but now that i have max pass and will be traveling different mountains i am curious. some have bar code scanners and some have RFIDs.
    what do you use?

    any specific brand/style you found effective?

    Stratton gave me one of those "classic" pass-on-a-string things like the one in your picture on my first MAX day this year.

    I bought one of the pass-on-a-string things from Amazon, it makes it a lot less awkward for the attendant to scan... worked well at Stratton and Killington so far this year. But I’m not a fan of how the pass flaps around when barelling down the mountain. For places like Okemo that have RFID, I put the Max Pass by itself in a hip or chest pocket.

    The armband let me down a bunch of years ago. Slid off of my jacket somewhere at Sunday River without realizing. Since then I’ve used the other pull string type with no issues. I keep a few of them kicking around.

    Before this year I always used the arm band. This year Peaks gave me the pull string type so I just clip it to my ski pants.

    Most places will give you one of those retractable pass holders. You just have to ask in the season pass office/window.

    Me and my whole family use the retractable cable method. I just double up on the retractable cable holders for all of ours just in case one of the cable gets caught on something and breaks...

    Been using this method for a decade plus now with no issues

    "retractable cable method"
    "pass-on-a-string"
    "pull string type"
    "retractable pass holder"

    Is this all technical terminology?

    Now I want to know what the ski resort purchasers have these listed as on their inventory supplier sheet..."pass-on-a-string" or "retractable pass holder"?!?!?!?

    Peak Pass comes on the retractable pass holder and that works fine.
    MAX Pass I keep in my jacket pocket or pants pocket so I can swing it by the RFID sensors easy enough and not worry about losing it.

    Zip-tie onto ski pants. Wear same ski pants every ski day. SR gives them out so put new one on when washing pants.

    My new art'cyteryx pants have no loop for pass, wtf? Have to put zip-tie through zipper.
