Deer Valley Resort is one of 23 mountain destinations skiers can access next season on the Alterra Mountain Company's soon-to-be-released IKON pass. 

January 25, 2018 -- Today Alterra Mountain Company announced its much-anticipated 2018-2019 winter season pass product, the Ikon Pass, which offers access to 22 resorts from California to Maine. The pass will go on sale this spring and will allow bearers access to the following resorts which, by region, include:

California: Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Mammoth Mountain, June Mountain, Big Bear Mountain Resort
Colorado: Aspen Snowmass, Steamboat, Winter Park Resort, Copper Mountain, Eldora Mountain Resort

“There are many pass options out there, and we are proud to collaborate on the inaugural Ikon Pass with the inclusion of POWDR’s Killington, Eldora and Copper Mountain,” said Wade Martin, Chief Revenue Officer for the Park City-based POWDR. “The Ikon Pass is an outstanding pass product for skiers and riders, and we’re excited for new guests to experience what we are all about at POWDR - the local, authentic mountain experience.”

A handful of Ikon pass resorts are currently part of other group passes, like the Mountain Collective and Rocky Mountain Super Pass; whether those resorts will maintain partnership with pass conglomerates other than Ikon is unclear at this time, as is if the Ikon pass will herald in snowboarding at Deer Valley or Alta. (Alta and Deer Valley are two of three resorts in the US that do not currently allow snowboarding.)

Reigning World Cup champion and Olympic gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S. Ski Team is onboard with Alterra Mountain Company as an investor and will serve as an Ambassador for the launch of the new Ikon Pass. “I grew up skiing on mountains big and small with my family, so when I’m in the mountains, I’m home. They each play an important role in my career and hold a special place in my heart,” said Mikaela Shiffrin. “I’ve spent more time training on snow at Ikon Pass destinations than anywhere else in the world, since first skiing the World Cup in 2010. It is a huge honor to be an owner in Alterra Mountain Company and to represent the Ikon Pass.” Shiffrin is the youngest woman in history to win a World Championship and the youngest athlete in history to win an Olympic slalom gold medal.
