Winter is just around the corner and if you haven’t planned your 2023/24 ski season then now is the time to start. Of course, if you’re planning your winter trip then you’ll need to know what’s new on the Ikon Pass for 2024!
The ASO Mammoth team has you covered with our guide to additions to the Ikon for 2024 here, so keep reading to plan your season. If you’re planning a trip to Mammoth Lakes then make sure you add in a stop to ASO Mammoth for the best ski and snowboard rentals in Mammoth Lakes!
Before we go any further, it’s important to remember that the Ikon comes with different tiers of access. There is the Base Pass, the Base Plus Pass, and then the regular Ikon Pass. The exact number of days you have at each resort will depend on which pass you purchase, so even though the changes to the pass for 2024 will affect all passholders how they do so will depend on which pass you buy.
New Resorts on the Ikon Pass for 2024
So, what new mountains are on the Ikon Pass for 2024? They include-
Having two new destinations in Pennsylvanian opens new options for Midwest and East Coast skiers and snowboarders. Of course, it’s hard to ignore a new destination in Alaska, especially one that receives 600 inches of snow a year. Having access to destinations with such large differences in one pass underscores just how valuable the Ikon Pass is!
Taos Moves to the Base Plus Pass
Taos Ski Valley has moved from the Base Pass to the Base Plus Pass for the 2024 season. That means that regular Base Pass holders will not have access to Taos.
There are several other mountains that are only included in the Plus Pass and the Ikon Pass such as Jackson Hole and Alta, so double check availability before planning your trip.
Check Reservation Status for your Mountains
If you’re new to the Ikon Pass then you may not realize that several mountains on the pass require Ikon holders to make a reservation before they ride or ski. Reservation requirements can change from season to season, so double check where they’re required, make sure you have them ahead of time, and then enjoy your day on the snow!
New Ikon Pass Benefits
The Ikon Pass has always had perks like family and friends passes, food and beverage discounts, and early access for pass holders. This year they’ve added even more perks! They include-
- Discounts with Smith for eyewear and goggles
- One free year of Outside+ which means access to one of the most-comprehensive outdoor sport publications in the world.
- 3 months of Paramount+ so you have plenty to stream while you recover from your day on the mountain.
Remember to check the requirements and reservations for your specific pass, and then stop by ASO Mammoth when you visit Mammoth Mountain!
