Look out Epic Pass, there’s a new kid in town.

The Ikon Pass is the brainchild of Alterra Mountain Co., formed last year through the collaboration of multiple top-tier destination ski resorts. It will replace The Rocky Mountain SuperPass with access to now 26 destinations across nine states, including Colorado and now four Canadian provinces. 

“The Ikon Pass will replace The Rocky Mountain SuperPass,” said Alterra Mountain Company CMO Erik Forsell. “It won’t be available next season.”

The pass, which will be available March 6 for the 2019 ski season, includes 26 destinations across California, Colorado, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming, Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia. Colorado resorts included are Aspen Snowmass, Steamboat, Winter Park, Copper and Eldora. And though formed by Alterra Mountain Company, they are putting the spotlight on the individual resorts involved rather than on themselves.

“This pass isn’t about highlighting Alterra, it’s about highlighting the resorts and the skier or riders relationship with that individual mountain,” said Forsell

This brings the number of included resorts on the pass to 26 spread over nine states and four Canadian provinces.
