Alterra Mountain Company unveils the Ikon Pass
On Thursday, January 25, Alterra Mountain Company announced that it will offer one pass with access to 23 ski resorts across North America for the 2018-2019 ski season. Enter the Ikon Pass.
The Ikon Pass is the product of a new partnership between seven ski industry moguls: Alterra Mountain Company, Aspen Skiing Company, Alta Ski Area, Boyne Resorts, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, POWDR, and Snowbird. With this partnership, Alterra Mountain Company will double the terrain acreage it can offer skiers—they’ll have access to almost 50,000 acres across nine states and three Canadian Provinces. Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass offers skiers access to 43,000 acres and 15 resorts.
The Ikon Pass will include access to Steamboat, Winter Park Resort, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Mammoth Mountain, June Mountain, Big Bear Mountain Resort, Stratton, Snowshoe, Tremblant, Blue Mountain, and to Deer Valley Resorts.
The Ikon Pass will also provide access to Killington, Copper Mountain, and Eldora Mountain Resorts, which are owned and operated by POWDR. Aspen Snowmass, owned by Aspen Skiing Company, will join the ticket, as will Big Sky Resort, Loon, Sunday River, and Sugarloaf, which are owned by Boyne Resorts. Independently owned Alta Ski Area, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, and Snowbird will also be part of the Ikon Pass.
