For Utah skiers with a thousand bucks and wanderlust, the Ikon Pass now includes a season pass to Solitude Mountain Resort, plus 21 total days of skiing at four other Utah resorts, as well as access to 25 other destination resorts.
With Solitude recently acquired by the massive Alterra Mountain Company, the Big Cottonwood Canyon resort is now the main Utah offering in Alterra’s Ikon pass, which was announced early this year. It competes with the Epic Pass from Vail Resorts, which provides unlimited access to Park City and ski days at more than 65 destinations worldwide.
The Ikon pass effectively replaces Solitude’s season pass, and throws in seven days of passes each to Brighton and Deer Valley, and seven days to be divided between Alta and Snowbird. Brighton is a new addition to the pass.
It also provides unlimited access to 12 other resorts in the United States and Canada, and seven days each to an additional 11 resorts.
“The Ikon Pass is expanding, and with the addition of Solitude Mountain Resort and Brighton Resort, we are excited to offer unparalleled access to Utah, a state known around the world for its snow quality, variety of terrain, and accessibility,” said Erik Forsell, chief marketing officer of Alterra Mountain Company, in a news statement. ”We are nearly 70 days away from opening day in North America and are thrilled to jump-start the ski and snowboard season by adding more premier Ikon Pass destinations for winter 2018/2019.”
The Icon pass costs $999 per adult, with reduced rates for military and youth.
The smaller Ikon Base Pass offers all-season access to Solitude, excluding blackout dates around holidays, and 15 total days at the other Utah resorts, also excluding blackout dates. The Base Pass costs $699 per adult.
