I have lived in Colorado now for about five years and have always done the Epic Local pass. This year I decided to do the Copper pass and absolutely love the mountain! The only thing I do not like is the fact that they have to physically scan your pass every time you board the lift at the bottom. Vail Resorts use the RF chip in the passes and it is so convenient when they just "scan your body" for the pass.
I know this is a minor gripe...but I hate having to dig my pass out for it to be scanned. Has anyone heard if Copper will ever move to RF passes in the near future?
