If you were an Ikon Pass holder this year and were planning to renew your pass for next season, we’ve got good news: Today, Ikon Pass and Mammoth Mountain announced that they would be doubling the discount and extending the renewal window for 19/20 Ikon Passholders interested in purchasing passes for the 20/21 season.
In response to the impact of COVID-19, Denver-based Alterra Mountain Company announced the discount extension to help ease the pain of Ikon Passholders who lost out on skiing plans due to the coronavirus mountain closures. In a statement from Erik Forsell, Chief Marketing Officer for Alterra Mountain Company, “These are the days when we are particularly grateful for all those in the Ikon Pass community who share our passion and enthusiasm for winter, and we want to acknowledge our appreciation and gratitude by doubling 20/21 renewal discounts and offering some of the lowest prices since we launched Ikon Pass.”
Here’s what you need to know:
Ikon Pass Extended Renewal Deadline
The renewal deadline has been extended from April 22, 2020 through May 26, 2020. Passes must be purchased prior to May 27, 2020 to receive the spring promotional discount – prices will increase on May 27.
Doubled Renewal Discount
As a show of appreciation to all 19/20 Ikon Pass holders, the 20/21 renewal discount has been doubled.
- The full Ikon Pass renewal discount is now $200 per pass, with prices starting at $799.
- The Ikon Base Pass renewal discount is now $100 per pass, with prices starting at $599.
Note: If you already renewed yourpPass for the 20/21 winter season prior to this announcement, you will still receive this additional discount and will be contacted by Ikon Pass.
Previously only available through April 22, Ikon Passholders can now take advantage of an interest-free payment plan now through August 1, 2020 with a $199 non-refundable deposit and four monthly payments.
20/21 Ikon Pass Options
Ikon’s pass offerings for the 20/21 season are slightly different from what we’ve seen the past two years of their existence as a mountain collective pass.
In addition to their usual full Ikon Pass (sans blackout date restrictions) and Ikon Base Pass (with blackout dates and less days at selective resorts), Aspen and Jackson Hole have split off and are no longer included in the Ikon Base Pass. Customers who opt for the Base Pass but still want to ski Aspen and/or Jackson Hole can do so by purchasing their new third pass option – the “Ikon Base Pass Plus” – for $150 more.
So to recap, here are the core Ikon Pass options for the 20/21 season:
- Ikon Pass: $999 or $799 renewal price (until 5/27/20) “The most access and no blackout dates at 41 unique destinations worldwide.”
- Ikon Base Pass Plus: $849 or $749 renewal price (until 5/27/20) Ikon Base Pass + Aspen + Jackson Hole
- Ikon Base Pass: $699 or $599 renewal price (until 5/27/20) “39 unique destinations worldwide, with limited blackout dates.” Does not include Aspen or Jackson Hole.
There is now also a fourth offering from Ikon Pass – the Ikon Session Pass, a four-day customizable pass to select destinations. This pass costs $399 and is not eligible for a renewal discount or payment plan.
Child Pass Promotion
The Child Pass Promotion is also extended through May 26, 2020. With the purchase of an Adult pass, Ikon Pass holders can purchase up to two discounted Child Ikon Passes / Ikon Base Passes for children ages 5-12.
While these are uncertain times, and many people have questions, this isn’t forever – the mountain community will get through this and we will come together once more to ski (and snowboard) again. To this effect, Ikon Pass also released a video to go along with their official statement – “Because, while seasons change, the mountains always endure.”
