Or, if summer isn’t your thing, chase the powder all year long and book a ski trip down south to Valle Nevado, Thredbo, Mt Buller, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Mt Hutt.

With your 24/25 Ikon Pass, Full Ikon Pass holders score seven unrestricted days, while both the Base and Base Plus receive five (excluding the Ikon Session Pass). Any days not used at these destinations during the Southern Hemisphere’s 2024 season will carry over to the 2025 Southern Hemisphere season at Thredbo, Mt Buller, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Mt Hutt, and Valle Nevado. If you also have a 23/24 Ikon Pass or Ikon Base Pass, your seven and five days are also valid during the Southern Hemisphere’s 2024 season if they were not used in 2023.

Note: Terms and conditions apply.


Once summer hits, 24/25 Epic Pass holders will have access to free lift rides at select Epic resorts, plus discounts on food, lodging, bike rentals, golf and transportation. See below for specific offers by resort.
