The pass will also allow five days, with holiday blackout dates in effect, at Steamboat, Mammoth Mountain, Deer Valley Resort, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Big Sky Resort, Stratton, Killington, Revelstoke and Sugarbush. Also included are five days at four separate destination groupings: Aspen Mountain, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk; Alta and Snowbird; Banff Sunshine, Lake Louise and Mt.

Both passes will go on sale March 6.
The debut of the Ikon Pass pricing and access details also announces the inclusion of new destination partners SkiBig3 and Revelstoke Mountain Resort, two of the premier ski destinations in Canada, as well as Sugarbush in Vermont.
“We continue to curate like-minded partners for the Ikon Pass that add more bucket list destinations for skiers and riders. The addition of SkiBig3, Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Sugarbush Resort brings tremendous value to the Ikon Pass, and expands access in Canada and the East Coast,” says Erik Forsell, Chief Marketing Officer of Alterra Mountain Company. “We are thrilled to partner with these three iconic destinations and welcome them to the Ikon Pass community for winter 2018-2019.”
