Since its introduction last January, Alterra Mountain Company’s Ikon Pass has been drawing its fair share of attention. For good reason too–the season pass offering is the first multi-destination pass to put up a fight with Vail Resort’s long-standing Epic Pass. Where the resorts under Vail Resort’s Epic umbrella have largely stayed the same–with the exception of the acquisition of Okemo, Mount Sunapee, Crested Butte, and Stevens Pass–the Ikon has been growing at an exceedingly rapid rate. In fact, over the last week of August alone Alterra Mountain Company announced new partnerships and the addition of eight new resorts for this season’s pass.

Given that the Ikon Pass is increasing in both popularity and scale on a seemingly daily basis, we have compiled all of the relevant information for potential pass holders in one place. Below, you will find pricing tier options, blackout date information, and a full list of the resorts included on each pass (with the exception of Deer Valley and Alta, UT for obvious reasons). The below list and pass information will be routinely updated as we creep closer to opening day, so make sure to check back for any late updates to the all-new Ikon Pass.
