As with most other Ikon resorts, Winter Park in Colorado began the season not requiring passholders to make reservations. But it soon became clear from lift-lines and crowds that to manage the demand of eager skiers and riders, a reservation system would be necessary. So the resort took the unpopular decision to implement one, beginning Saturday 19th December.

Within four days, weekends through the end of March were fully booked, angering Ikon Pass holders who spent up to $1,000 on their pass. At the time of writing, only a couple of Sundays (21st and 28th) were still available, at the end of March.

Winter Park responded, providing FOX31 with this statement:

“It’s true that many weekends booked up when we first opened the system. We’re advising people to seriously consider weekdays if that’s an option for them and to check back frequently, even the day of. People ended up canceling last weekend and we had availability both Saturday and Sunday. Depending on our county and state guidelines and restrictions, we may be able to add more openings in the months ahead.”

Aspen, CO, also on the Ikon Pass, announced last week that they would not require reservations over the holiday period.

  1. Wow! Hate to give in, but lines like this persist at Tahoe, it looks like the sport I have loved for 62 yrs will be over for me. Sad

    1. So true, just smile knowing you were skiing when it was awesome, before corporate America ruined it, at least in the good ole USA.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
