Practical, Easy, Quick and Secure

Hands-Free – Top-up card

  • Lift passes purchased online are compulsorily issued on "Internet Hands-Free"-type magnetic and electronic cards designed to be kept in a pocket and read remotely by the terminal at the bottom of each ski lift used. For new customers who are not already in possession of an ISO-type card with an Internet or WTP top-up number issued by a resort in the Portes du Soleil, the top-up card is available online when placing an order.

3 major advantages

  • Practical: the card stays in your pocket, eliminating the risk of loss or damage.
  • Environmentally friendly: the card can be used from season to season and eliminates the need to print out a pass on non-biodegradable glazed cardboard each time you visit.
  • Fast: you can now top up your passes online without having to go to a ticket counter, saving valuable time.


The top-up card bears a unique code comprising 14 digits and letters (the Internet or WTP number). This code is in the following format: XXXXXXXX XXX-XXX, made up of the digits 0 to 9 and the letters A to F.
This number is displayed on your card. It should not be confused with the card number which begins with 477, since this is not used when topping up online.
If your card does not bear an Internet or WTP number or if you cannot read it, please contact the sales department on 00.33.450.81.37.38


There are 2 types of bonus points:

  • When purchasing lift passes on a "hands-free" card, the customer accumulates points. When he has acquired 200 points he qualifies for a free day's skiing in the Portes du Soleil ski area. Bonus points can be accumulated over several years. The accumulation of points from more than one card is not permitted. Bonus points have no monetary value; only cards with 200 points or more entitle the holder to one free day in the Portes du Soleil.
  • Bonus points acquired from online top-ups can only be combined with bonus points from other online purchases; similarly, bonus points obtained from purchases at a cashdesk can be combined only with others also obtained from cashdesk purchases.
  • Internet points do not appear on your card. You can check the total number of points you have accumulated at any time on the website under 'my account'.
  • You can use your BONUS day once your lift pass has run out or for a separate day's skiing!
