If you ask us, you don’t need to look any further than Mammoth Mountain for incredible skiing and snowboarding.
However, if you’re not able to travel here and you have an Ikon then you may be looking at the new mountains on the Ikon Pass for 2023. If that’s you, then we have you covered with the ASO Mammoth guide to new mountains on the Ikon Pass for 2023 below.
Read all about it then visit the ASO Mammoth shop for the best ski and snowboard rentals in Mammoth Lakes!
Looking for an escape from crowded slopes and lift lines? Sun Valley may be the best choice for you this winter since it’s new to the Ikon.
Sun Valley is located in the heart of Idaho, but just because you don’t hear of Idaho often associated with great skiing and snowboarding doesn’t mean this place isn’t worth a visit. Not only does Sun Valley have over 2,400 acres of terrain and 3,400 vertical feet of mountain, but it also has an excellent town that makes the perfect home for the winter sports community.
Oh, and if the terrain isn’t up to you expectations then you can always check out Sun Valley heli-skiing and explore the backcountry the easy way!
When you think of skiing and snowboarding near Salt Lake City, you might think of Park City, Snowbird, or the other resorts in Big Cottonwood Canyon. If you drive further north though, you’ll get to enjoy similar terrain with fewer crowds.
Like Sun Valley, Snowbasin covers a huge amount of acreage (3,000 acres) but thanks to the mountains layout and the lack of peak crowds there are under a dozen lifts servicing them all. That means you get long runs, down world-class terrain, with few people waiting in front of you for another go when you get to the bottom.
Looking to take your skiing and snowboarding adventure to another country? Try heading north to Panorama to enjoy nearly 3,000 acres of terrain in British Columbia!
British Columbia skiing and snowboarding is going to be centered around Whistler and Revelstoke, but if you don’t want to be at the center of everything and just want to enjoy the snow then Panorama is the place for you.
It doesn’t hurt that you’ll also enjoy one of the longest verticals in all of Canada since Panorama rises well over 4,000 feet from the base!
Dreaming of powdery tree runs on fun terrain that everyone can enjoy? Lotte Aria in Japan is the place for you!
Lotte Aria is located near Tokyo and has plenty of easy terrain and snow for beginners and advanced riders to have a blast!
On the other side of the spectrum, there’s Chamonix in France which combines technical terrain and high altitudes for advanced but fun skiing and snowboarding in one of the most mountain obsessed communities in the world.
Although there are plenty of runs for beginners, Chamonix is the perfect playground for those who love advanced skiing and snowboarding!
