Adding its third continent and fourth country, the Ikon Pass community now includes access to Niseko United, home to some of the planet’s most plentiful, deepest, and lightest snow. Renowned for its consistent 50+ feet of snowfall, Niseko United is regarded as Japan’s premier mountain destination.

LAND OF ENCHANTMENT EXPANSION

Treat yourself to an eclectic cultural experience that combines big-mountain adventure and Southwest spirit. Now a part of the Ikon Pass community, New Mexico’s Taos Ski Valley offers 1,200 exhilarating acres, including expert hike-to terrain. Nestled in an intimate valley where Spanish Colonial and Native American history meet European village charm, it’s also in the midst of a $300 million overhaul, heightening its premier vacation and adventure destination status. 

PACIFIC NORTHWEST EXTENSION

Experience legendary snowfall that spans two countries. By adding The Summit at Snoqualmie in Washington and Cypress Mountain in British Columbia, the Ikon Pass community now touches every corner of our country and expands Canadian access. In the heart of the Cascades, The Summit at Snoqualmie includes the Alpental back bowls and back country, two terrain parks and a superpipe, while Cypress Mountain offers the most terrain and the best snow conditions on the North Shore Mountains’ highest peak.  Alterra is currently finalizing an agreement with Crystal Mountain, WA that will include Crystal Mountain unlimited on both the Ikon Pass and Ikon Base Pass once finalized in October.

THE BEST OF THE MIDWEST

Conquer the mountains of the Midwest with the latest additions to the Ikon Pass community —Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain in Michigan. The iconic mountain destinations, located 280 miles north of Detroit, offer the most skiable acres in lower Michigan, including the state’s longest ski run.

EXPANDED ACCESS IN THE NORTHEAST

Triple your access to some of the best terrain New England has to offer. The Ikon Pass originally offered seven days combined between New Hampshire’s Loon Mountain and Maine’s Sugarloaf and Sunday River (five days combined between the three destinations on the Ikon Base Pass), but it now offers seven days at each destination (five days at each destination on the Ikon Base Pass)—bringing access to 21 days total on the Ikon Pass (15 days total on the Ikon Base Pass).
