DENVER (CBS4) – Several ski companies are coming together to offer a new ski pass next season that will give access to dozens of North American ski slopes.
The Ikon Pass will give skiers and boarders access to 23 destinations in nine states and three Canadian provinces for the 2018-2019 ski season. In Colorado it includes the following resorts:
– Aspen Snowmass
– Winter Park
The specific offerings at each of those resorts will be revealed at a later date. The varying price levels of the pass also haven’t been revealed yet.
This pass will replace the M.A.X. Pass and Rocky Mountain Super Pass+, and its announcement doesn’t come as a big surprise. Last year a deal was finalized that brought Steamboat and Aspen Ski Resorts under the same ownership umbrella.
