The Ikon Pass is the new Squaw Alpine season pass.

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is offering the Ikon Pass to all of its guests for the upcoming season.

Although similarly priced to the former Tahoe Super Pass, the Ikon Pass offers access to an additional 25 destinations.  

Beginning this week, Ikon Pass and Ikon Base passholders can and ski and ride for free at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows as well as others.

With operations at Squaw Alpine expected to continue through Memorial Day, passholders still have two more months of skiing and riding left before the lifts stop turning for the summer.

Why did you choose to no longer offer a Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows – only pass?

“The Ikon pass offers the same skiing and riding benefits at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows while adding 25 more destinations, three more in California alone, all for a similar price to the former Tahoe Super Pass. We are so excited to be able to offer this to our guests. It is a brand new offering and an opportunity for us to streamline and simplify our product offerings. Given that the Ikon Pass is similarly priced, we feel it’s unnecessary to continue carrying the Tahoe Super Pass.”

One thought on “The Ikon Pass IS The New Squaw Alpine Season Pass

  1. great, pay more $ for a bunch of resorts i’ll never ride at! What a deal to pay for things you dont need in order to access 1 resort. Great idea for those that want it, but sucks for anyone who has to stay local and only wants to ride at Alpine. Stupid capitalists owning resorts sucks the soul from them. The mountains were better with small privately owned “ski areas” as opposed to these real estate company investments called “resorts”.
