Serious About Skiing and Travel? The new IKON PASS is your ticket

Do you have an independent streak and a passion for exploring, skiing or riding, travel, plus a list of dream destinations longer than your arm? Then I have great news - it’s called the Ikon Pass and it reinvents how skiers and riders travel. Gone are the days of being strapped to one “brand” of mountain. With the Ikon Pass, you get real choices with your travel. Mark your calendars because it launches on March 6th, 2018.

Three Ikon Pass destinations are right here in Utah: Deer Valley Resort, Alta Ski Area, and Snowbird. However, the beauty of this pass are the options it gives you to travel…and I’m all about that.

Three Ikon Pass destinations are right here in Utah

With the Ikon Pass, you’ll gain access to a curated community of 26 like-minded destinations spanning nine states and four Canadian provinces, each with bucket-list worthy mountains. In total, that’s 63,000 acres to explore. Even the most restless skiers and riders would be pressed to visit each one…but it sure would be fun to try.
