The long-awaited pricing and resort access details for the Ikon Passes have just been announced, and the news is all good. Basically, no matter where you live or love to ski, there’s something here for you.

If you’re not up to speed with the new Ikon Pass, or the folks behind it, Alterra Mountain Company, read this. For the rest of us, the Ikon Pass is a pretty big deal—the first season pass offering to truly challenge the scope and value of the Epic Pass. “We continue to curate like-minded partners for the Ikon Pass that add more bucket list destinations for skiers and riders," said Erik Forsell, Chief Marketing Officer of Alterra Mountain Company.
For the 2018-19 ski season, the Ikon Pass will offer skiing at 26 resorts, most recently adding Revelstoke, B.C., Sugarbush, Vt., and Ski Big3 (Lake Louise, Sunshine Village, and Mt. Norquay), in Alberta. Resort access varies among the two pass offerings, the Ikon Pass and the Ikon Base Pass. Here’s a breakdown.

Sunshine Village Ikon

Sunshine Village is one of the newest additions to the Ikon Pass lineup.

The full Ikon Pass, $899, features unlimited skiing at Colorado’s Winter Park, Copper, Steamboat, and Eldora; California’s Squaw Alpine, Mammoth, Big Bear, and June; Stratton, Vt.,; Snowshoe, W.V.; and Eastern Canada’s Tremblant and Blue Mountain.

Passholders also get seven days each at Deer Valley, Utah; Jackson Hole, Wyo.; Big Sky, Mont.; Killington and Sugarbush, Vt.; and Revelstoke, B.C.

Plus, the full Ikon Pass offers seven days at each of these resort groupings:

• Aspen, Snowmass, Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands, Colo.

• Alta and Snowbird, Utah

• Lake Louise, Sunshine Village, Mt. Norquay, Alberta

• Sunday River and Sugarloaf, Maine, and Loon Mountain, N.H.

Kids passes (12 and under) are $199 with purchase of an adult Ikon Pass, and are available through April 9.

Bonus: the full Ikon Pass has no restrictions, and comes with 10 Friends & Family tickets offering 25 percent off the window rate at any Ikon resort.

Jackson Hole Ikon

Both Ikon Passes offer limited access to Jackson Hole and its iconic "big red box."

The Ikon Base Pass, $599, gets you unlimited skiing at Winter Park, Copper, Eldora, Squaw Alpine, Big Bear, June, Snowshoe, Tremblant, and Blue Mountain with no blackouts* except for holiday restrictions at Squaw Alpine; plus five days each (with blackouts*) at Steamboat, Mammoth, Deer Valley, Jackson Hole, Big Sky, Stratton, Killington, Revelstoke, and Sugarbush.

The Ikon Base also includes five days each at the same resort groupings as the full Ikon, but with holiday blackouts*:

• Aspen, Snowmass, Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands, Colo.

• Alta and Snowbird, Utah

• Lake Louise, Sunshine Village, Mt. Norquay, Alberta

• Sunday River and Sugarloaf, Maine, and Loon Mountain, N.H.

*Blackouts dates are Dec. 26-31, Jan. 18-19, and Feb. 16-17.

Kids passes (12 and under) are $149 with purchase of an adult Ikon Base Pass, and are available through April 9. Base passholders get eight Friends & Family tickets.
