1. I have already registered for, why can`t I login?
Did you click the activation link when you got your confirmation mail? Username as well as password are case sensitive. Quite frequently letters like the lower case I or L are confused with the number 1. It`s probably best to enter your password, using the "copy & paste" function, and to modify it manually later. In rare cases you might run into technical problems. If they keep persisting, please contact us per mail to
2. What can I do if I didn`t get any confirmation email?
The top reasons for emails not being delivered/received are:
  • Typing errors in the email address.
  • Your postbox is full and this makes it impossible for you to receive additional mails.
  • The mails were sorted out by your spam filter and categorized as spam or junk. Try looking for our email in your junk mail folder.

  • Log into your Skiline account (username/password).
  • Browse the main menu and go to "My Page".
  • A list of your ski passes will show up e.g."ski resort, from December 22 2010 until January 15 2011", "25-182-12-58123 - 15 skiing days, 127 lift rides, 46978 altitude meters, 251544 meters on the slope - if you move the mouse over one individual icon of the skipass, a choice of two buttons pops up: "update" or "delete".

  • Browse the main menu and go to "My Page".
  • A list of your ski passes will show.
  • Now click "delete" button (the X) on the right side of the skiing day you want to delete.
4. How can I enter last season`s ski ticket?
We regret that it is not possible to enter skiing days of the previous season. The possibility to enter skitickets has to be limited to the current season for administrative reasons, as each skipass holds a serial number out of a fixed set of numbers that keeps recurring every year.
5. How often do I have to enter my ski ticket?
One skiticket has to be entered only once. Just add missing skiing days and keep your statistics up to date by clicking "update".

  • Log into your Skiline account (username/password).
  • A list of your skitickets will show up e.g. "ski resort, from December 22 2010 until January 15 2011", "25-182-12-58123 - 15 skiing days, 127 lift rides, 46978 altitude meters, 251544 meters on the slope". On the left side of the skipass you will find two Buttons: One Icon for updating your skipass (two arrows) and one icon for deleting your skipass (X).
  • Now click "update" to update all skiing days of the selected skiticket.
7. My ski ticket doesn`t show any skiing days or some lift rides are missing. How do I access the missing data?
Similar problems can occur due to connection failure between the reader and the database and lie beyond our sphere of influence. Your missing rides will be added to your account as soon as the connection works again, and you refresh your skiticket by clicking "reload".
8. Can lift rides be added manually?
In some cases it can happen that throughout one entire day of skiing you may have used lifts that haven`t got readers. Here we have created the possibility to manually add these lifts to your skiing day. You can access this function below your skiline under "additional lifts". Manual adding of lifts and rides is pretty much like keeping a diary and doesn`t influence your daily statistics.
