NEW SUMMIT SCENES FOR YEWWW
To help make 22/23 that much sweeter, the Ikon Pass has turned up the fun with five new legendary destinations.
Bucket List Ready in Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley, France
Claiming its spot under the highest mountain in western Europe, Chamonix is a beloved bucket list destination that has always written its own introduction. Big mountain features – the stunning backdrop of Mont Blanc stands at a staggering 15,777′ high – blend seamlessly with charming valley villages stuffed with French charm, food, and fun. With the addition of Chamonix, Ikon Pass holders can now unlock up to 28 days across four European icons.
Sun-Drenched in Sun Valley, Idaho
An Idaho icon steeped in sunshine, ski lore, and legend, Sun Valley was initially made famous by Hollywood’s elite. Today, this premier, year-round destination draws visitors from around the world. The second Idaho destination added to Ikon Pass, Sun Valley is nestled among the mountains and ranchlands of south-central Idaho, surrounded by nearly a million acres of alpine beauty.
Lotte Aria Resort, Japan
Brand new to the Ikon Pass crew, this perfectly positioned destination in the foothills of Ookenashi Mountain – only a short proximity from Tokyo – boasts one of the highest snowfalls in all of Japan. We’re talking over 800” annually. So, strap in and get ready for goggle-deep powder plunges that ring loud with bucket list bravado. Featuring all the light, dry snow that Japan is known for, Lotte Arai is primed for those that like it deep, and almost 80% of its terrain is comprised of off-piste powder pillows. And when the sun begins to drop, it’s time to lift a glass of premium Japanese Sake. With a proper toast to today’s international adventure, settle in and get ready for all the turns that tomorrow will bring.
Powder-Pillow Hunting in Snowbasin, Utah
The sixth addition to Utah’s Ikon Pass offering, Snowbasin Resort has long been renowned as one of the most accessible world-class ski resorts in North America. Sitting just 45 minutes from Salt Lake International Airport, this globally beloved mountain is regularly top-rated in accessibility, service, food, lifts, and grooming. Throughout these elevated offerings, families and adventure seekers can experience 3,000 skiable and a wide variety of beginner, intermediate, and advanced terrain. Consistently recognized as one of the best family resorts in North America, Snowbasin Resort is one of the oldest continuously operating ski resorts in the nation.
A perfect international experience, Panorama has long secured a place as a pure Canadian legend. Featuring one of North America’s Top ten verticals, a climate built out of deep fun, and an après scene that never quits, British Columbia’s best crew claims another must-visit in the landscape of Canada’s sweet spot. For three must-have memories, start with a tour of the 1000 Peaks trail. This incredible ridge-top run lives up to its name with soaring peaks in all directions, a massive vertical drop, and regularly groomed snow. Then, move on to the sweet spots found from the top of the Summit Quad, a former heliskiing area that now requires no hiking while delivering all the goods of Taynton Bowl ridge. And when that end-of-day hunger hits, tuck into the Summit Hut, the only place in the world (UM, PRO TIP) that offers a cheese and chocolate fondue experience where you fly up and back down by helicopter after the ski area is closed for the day.
