Ikon Pass BLACKOUT DATES 2023-2024

North America: December 26 - 31, 2023; January 13 & 14, 2024; February 17 & 18, 2024
Thredbo: July 2 - 17, 2022; July 1 - 16, 2023
No blackouts at Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley, Dolomiti Superski, Kiztbühel, Zermatt, Valle Nevado, Mt Buller, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, and Mt Hutt

Ikon Base Pass skiers should remember that Jackson Hole, Aspen, Sun Valley, Deer Valley, and Snowbasin will require an additional $200 payment to use the Base Plus Pass on those mountains. That $220 will grant riders five days at each resort (five days total across the four Aspen mountains, plus five days at Jackson Hole, Alta, Deer Valley, Sun Valley, Snowbasin and Taos).

For those planning on skiing those resorts and not skiing around big holidays—the ones listed above (Christmas/New Year's, MLK Day weekend and President's Day weekend) the Base Pass should do nicely.

That extra payment brings the total due for an Ikon Base Pass to $1,149, bringing it within $110 of the $1,259 owed for a full Ikon Pass, which comes with no blackouts and seven days at each of Jackson Hole, Aspen, Alta, Deer Valley, Snowbasin, Sun Valley, and Taos. Also notable, the Ikon Base Pass only give skiers five days at Steamboat, whereas the full Ikon grants unlimited access.

We expect this to have a minimal impact on the total number skier days at these partner mountains that cost extra, but these resorts will earn more cash from Alterra Mountain Co. (which owns/runs the Ikon Pass) for each day skied by, which is what premium destinations such as Jackson and Aspen have the leverage to do.

Also of note: The Ikon Session Pass will no longer grant access to Aspen, Jackson Hole, Alta, Snowbird or Deer Valley.
