The Ikon pass... 

Just like everything else in the world right now, the Ikon Pass is changing. Except instead of changes that result in our freedoms being limited, the Ikon pass is giving us MORE freedoms than ever before!

With the brand new Adventure Assurance program, buy your Ikon pass now and, if necessary,  defer your pass until the 21/22 ski season. There are new Zero-day credits available in the event of resort closures due to COVID-19 and Ikon Pass just debuted its brand new 4-day pass option at just $429!

Why Ikon? 

2020/2021 will be Ikon’s 3rd season, and even though it’s the new-ish pass on the block,  it’s set new standards for being the best in the ski business. In case you missed it, season ski passes are no longer just for the locals ski bumming for a year, they’re now the norm for vacationing visitors.

The Ikon Pass now spans 5 continents including their first European Ski Resort: Zermatt, home to the Matterhorn.

​​​​​​Zermatt Matterhorn

Why buy?

Well, first things first, the Ikon pass pays for itself in as little as three days. With window ticket pricing in Steamboat ascending to new heights at almost $200/day, the Ikon pass at $949 for renewals, or $1049 for new pass buyers,and just $369 for kids under 12 or Ikon base pass at $749 takes substantially less from your wallet, while padding your pass with so much more.

But discounted pricing is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s an avalanche of advantages you won’t want to miss.

Ticket to ride

With over 44 destinations on five continents for the Ikon pass, sampling snow all over the world has now become a distinct possibility.

If you’ve dreamed of schussing through Steamboat’s famed powder, hob-knobbing in Aspen, scaling the steeps of Jackson Hole, plus day-tripping to destinations close to your home base like Winter Park, Boyne, Squaw Valley, Mammoth, Stratton, Killington or Loon Mountain, all in just one winter, you’re going to want to get your mittens on an Ikon pass.

Keep in mind that this is a carefully curated collection of the world’s top mountains. While other conglomerate passes might try to rival the Ikon with sheer quantity, the Ikon reaches new heights with unmatched quality.

There are two different passes to choose from: the Ikon Pass priced at $1049 ($949 for renewals) or the Ikon Base Pass at $750 ($699 for renewals). Here are the details on which one is right for your family.

Renewal pricing not available as this is a brand new pass  

The Deadline 

For the best pricing on renewal passes, be sure to purchase by June 17, 2020.

Even if you missed the early discount deadline, the savings, perks and privileges with an Ikon pass are unbelievable, you’ll be eligible for huge renewal discounts in the future and with the new adventure assurance policy, you can even defer your unused Ikon Pass until next year.  

Ski your pass off

Here at Steamboat, reaching different milestones with your Ikon pass gets you helmet stickers, dining dollars, first tracks access, and, best of all, leaderboard bragging rights!

Adventure runs deep, and so do the deals!

Be sure to present your Ikon pass at resort-owned restaurants and retail shops for 15% off your food, clothing, and accessories (except hard goods) for the full Ikon Pass and 10% off for the Base Pass (*some restrictions may apply). All Alterra owned resorts (including Steamboat) now have exclusive partnerships with outdoor clothing and accessories leader, The North Face, making these off-mountain pass privileges even more appealing.  

Friends and Family

With the full Ikon Pass, you can purchase ten individual lift tickets at 25% off window pricing. With the Base Pass, you can buy eight individual lift tickets at 25% off.

Stoke Events

Invitation-only apres-ski events for Ikon pass holders: P.O.W. (Protect Our Winters) parties, Apres social, First Tracks Breakfast and Bashor BBQs to name a few.

Snow much fun…

Although the pass doesn’t grant you free access to CMH helicopter trips, it does give you coveted early booking privileges. Since CMH books out at least 18 months in advance, this perk can expedite checking off your Bobby Burns bucket list a bit.

Moving Mountains Insider Tip:

But if your bucket list doesn’t want to wait that long, may we suggest reserving a Steamboat vacation and enjoying some iconic turns on the mountain, then spend a day with the legendary Steamboat Powder Cats? Our very own Soda Mountain and Buffalo Pass serviced by 5-star snowcats are comparable powder experiences to our Canadian counterparts, yet much more convenient.

While your Ikon Pass won’t get you discounts at Steamboat Powder Cats, your stay with Moving Mountains will!

Powder Cats | Moving Mountains

 Direct-to-lift Convenience

When you purchase your Ikon Pass online, you upload your favorite photo (no more helmet hair!), submit your credit card, pop open your mailbox, and you’re ready for the slopes. No more standing in line at a snail’s pace ticket window waiting to get on the mountain! Plus, you proceed directly to the chairlift at most of the Alterra owned resorts. Almost all have direct-to-lift access for 2020/2021.

Southern Hemisphere Summer Skiing

Dreaming of a July ski trip in Chile or August in Australia? Your 2020/21 Ikon Pass or Ikon Base Pass gets you access to Australia’s Thredbo, Chile’s Valle Nevado, and New Zealand’s Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, and Mt Hutt from June - October 2021 (based on the seasonal opening and closing dates).

A half a billion more reasons to go Ikon

Alterra, the company that owns 14 of these iconic ski destinations (including Steamboat), is committed to spending 555 million dollars on upgrades at all of their resorts over the next few years.  All resort expenditures are going towards enhancing the guest experience with creative dining, faster and more comfortable lifts, expanded terrain, and new summer activities. 

Which one should you buy?

Our vote is for the signature Ikon Pass. With the signature pass, your skiing in Steamboat is unlimited, and there are no blackout dates for any of the iconic destinations. The cost is just a little over one more day on the mountains, and the upgrade gives you exponentially more access. Remember, the best pass pricing is just until June 17, 2020, and you can defer using it until 21/22 if necessary. So purchase now and thank us, later. Even if you missed the early discount deadline, the savings, perks and privileges with an Ikon pass are unbelievable, you’ll be eligible for huge renewal discounts in the future and with the new adventure assurance policy, you can even defer your unused Ikon Pass until next year.

Now it’s time to pair that pass with the perfect chalet. We’ve got you covered (in high-thread-count bedding, of course)!
