IKON PASS In Steamboat Springs 2020 – 2021

Ikon Pass Steamboat

After acquiring the Steamboat Ski Resort and other iconic destination resorts across North America, Alterra Mountain Company launched a game changer in 2018 to compete with Vail’s Epic Pass – the Ikon Pass. I think most of you would agree, that they did not disappoint. They not only included the 15 major resorts under Alterra’s umbrella, but they teamed up with other destination resorts to include more locations worldwide. Now, for the 20/21 season, your Ikon Pass will give you access to more than 40 major resorts across North America and beyond, including the Pacific Northwest, the Rockies, the Midwest, and more as well as destinations in Canada, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.

25 Iconic Destination Resorts

What does this mean for your family and friends? Big savings at the lift ticket window and the more you ski or ride the more money you will save! If you have not noticed, lift ticket pricing at the window for most major ski resorts has climbed to more than $200/day for an adult lift ticket during the prime season. So you can purchase a new Ikon Pass or Ikon Base Pass and ski a few weekends at a resort near you and then take a ski vacation to Steamboat, or any other destination that suits you. and you will quickly start saving money and enjoy more days of the steep and deep! Looking for a deal with a little less commitment? Check out the new 4-Day Session Pass!

For the 2020-2021 Season there are three passes to choose from. The original IKON PASS ($1,149 ) offers unlimited skiing and riding at 15 destinations, including  Steamboat and 14 other ski destinations worldwide, plus limited (usually seven days) access to 25 other partner destinations. The second pass option is the IKON BASE PASS ($849) which gives you access to 39 destinations, including Winter Park, Copper and Eldora in Colorado, plus others in California, West Virginia and Canada. You’re allowed  5 days access with blackout restrictions to Steamboat, Mammoth in California, Deer Valley, Big Sky, Vermont’s Sugarbush, Stratton and Killington, Revelstoke in British Columbia, plus a total of five days at these mountain groups:  AltaSnowbird, SkiBig3 in Alberta, and Sunday River, Loon Mountain and Sugarloaf in New England. New this year, the IKON 4-Day Session Pass ($499) lets you lock in a four-day pass now to use at select destinations next season. The pass entitles you to four days at your choice of 30 destinations – at one time, or split between locations. Blackout dates do apply. Payment plans and renewal discounts are available with the IKON Pass and the IKON Base Pass.

If you’re planning to purchase a pass for a child 12 and under, and you’ve purchased an adult pass, you’ll pay a discounted price for a kids full pass. The child on your pass is not required to actually be related to you, which could come in handy for certain groups. There are also discounts available for military members and college students.
