Interesting how some places introducing them and others taking them away (like Nozzle).

reason being is that the system to operate the ic cards is very expensive. Most ski areas are on a contract from Fujitsu or Hitachi etc.. they are not cheap to run.
I think they work well with resorts that have different owners then all the data can be gathered to see how they split the payments. More accurate than using a clicker.

They should use an existing system like pasmo, felica, waon, or edy.
If its affordable to install that kind of system in a drinks vending machine, I'm sure a ski lift can afford it.
