Frequently Asked Questions

Bridger Bowl Cards

What is the Bridger Bowl Card ?

Season passes, lift tickets, lessons and rental information are loaded on the reusable Bridger Bowl Card using RFID technology. Every skier/rider must have their own BBC. Make sure to hold onto BBC’s from past seasons to load products for 2024/25 ($10 fee for lost cards).

Bridger Bowl Cards are purchased online and registered with a guest's profile. All guest information is stored securely, strictly private and not accessible to other guests or employees without permission.

Keep Bridger Bowl Cards in a pocket alone away from other items such as cell phones, credit cards or other tickets and passes.

What is RFID?

RFID, or Radio Frequency Identification, is a technology that encodes digital data. This enables users hands free access to lifts and, by reusing the card, guests can reload products onto the same RFID card and skip the ticket window.
