For 2020, the Ikon Pass created discount available for current pass holders who renew for the 2020/2021 ski season. The discount is $100 for Ikon Pass renewal. Ikon Pass holders who renewed before April 22, 2020, will be contacted by Ikon about this additional discount. 

Additionally, the Ikon Pass has expanded its new Adventure Assurance program. Between Sept. 10, 2020, to April 11, 2021, anyone who has purchased a 2020-’21 Ikon Pass product that goes completely unused during the ski season will be able to defer the value of their 2020-’21 pass to an Ikon Pass product for the following season for no additional fee.

On June 4, 2020, the Ikon Pass announced that the Adventure Assurance program will also automatically provide passholders with proportional credit for the 2021-’22 season if there are ski resort closures related to COVID-19. All Ikon Pass holders will automatically be signed up to receive proportional credit if any Ikon Pass resort closes for any number of days dues to coronavirus issues.  

Alternatively, Between Sept. 10 to Oct. 1, 2020, Ikon Pass holders can select a “Home Resort,” or any North American Ikon Pass destination for credits related to closures related to the novel coronavirus. If that single resort is closed at least seven consecutive days or 21 total days due to COVID-19 between Dec. 10, 2020, and April 11, 2021, Ikon Pass holders will receive a proportional credit based on the total number of days closed. This credit will also automatically be applied to the pass holder’s account for use toward any 21/22 Ikon Pass product.

On September 1, 2020, RED Resort joined the Ikon Pass for the upcoming winter. The ski area, located near Rossland, B.C., is a part of the famed Powder Highway and was featured in Warren Miller Entertainment’s 2018 release, “Face of Winter.” 

Earlier in 2020, the Ikon Pass announced that Mt. Bachelor, Ore., and Windham Mountain, N.Y., would be joining the pass for the 2020-21 season. Ikon Pass holders will be able to ski both mountains for seven days without blackouts, and Ikon Pass Baseholders would be able to ski each mountain for 5 days with restrictions. For the latest updates, check out the Ikon Pass website.

For those looking to buy an Ikon Pass for the first time for next season, the $999 price will be valid until June 16, 2020, and interest-free payment plans are now available until July 31, 2020. Adults who purchase an Ikon Pass will be eligible to get two discounted Child Ikon Passes, for savings of up to $200, until the May 27 deadline as well.
