Mobile Pass Technology at Whistler Blackcomb for 2024/25 Season

Whistler Blackcomb announced that hands-free Mobile Pass and Mobile Lift Tickets technology will go live at the resort for the 2024/25 ski and ride season within the My Epic app. This innovation will allow guests to skip the ticket window and buy their Pass (or lift ticket) online, then activate and store it in the My Epic app. When they arrive, they can get scanned, hands-free, straight from their pocket via low energy Bluetooth technology designed for low energy use. With this enhancement, the My Epic app will provide guests a one-stop app, offering lift access, real-time resort updates, personalized stats, account information, and more.
