Ikon Base Pass skiers should remember that Jackson Hole, Aspen, Sun Valley, Deer Valley, and Snowbasin will require an additional $200 payment to use the Base Plus Pass on those mountains. That $200 will grant riders five days at each resort (five days total across the four Aspen mountains, plus five days at Jackson Hole, Alta, Deer Valley, Sun Valley and Snowbasin). For those planning on skiing those resorts and not skiing around big holidays—the ones listed above (Christmas/New Year's, MLK Day weekend and President's Day weekend) the Base Pass should do nicely.
That extra payment brings the total due for an Ikon Base Pass to $979, bringing it within $100 of the $1079 owed for a full Ikon Pass, which comes with no blackouts and seven days at each of Jackson Hole and Aspen.
We expect this to have a minimal impact on the total number skier days at Jackson and Aspen, but those resorts will earn more cash from Alterra Mountain Co. (which owns/runs the Ikon Pass) for each day skied at the resorts on the Ikon Pass, which is what premium destinations such as Jackson and Aspen have the leverage to do.
Also of note: The Ikon Session Pass will no longer grant access to Aspen, Jackson Hole, Alta, Snowbird or Deer Valley.
