Two New Ikon Pass Destinations -- Shout Out To The Catskills & The PNW

As every single ski, snowboard, and winter sports enthusiast looks ahead to the 2020/2021 season, most putting faith in the idea that it will be much better than 2019/2020, the folks over at the Ikon Pass are hoping to help out with that faith by announcing the addition of two more mountains, each one in a different region of the United States.

It was announced yesterday, April 28, that Mt. Bachelor in Oregon and Windham Mountain in the Catskills of New York have been added to the Ikon Pass lineup for the 2020/2021 skiing and riding season. This brings the total Ikon destination count to 43 hills.

“As we look ahead, we are excited to announce these new partners that represent the spirit of the Ikon Pass community, bringing added value to pass holders, at some of the lowest rates available since we launched the Ikon Pass,” said Erik Forsell, Chief Marketing Officer, Alterra Mountain Company. “Mt. Bachelor in Oregon and Windham Mountain in New York are favorites in their regions, adding expanded access in two new states in North America and inspiring Ikon Pass holders to seek more adventures.”

Ikon Pass holders will have access to seven days, with no blackout dates, to both mountains, while Ikon Base Pass holders will have five days at each hill, with select blackout dates. However, those using the Ikon Session Pass 4-Day will have no access to either mountain.

As with many mountains and other pass options, such as the Epic Pass, Ikon Pass recently announced some new benefits for the 2020/2021 season, which include;

  • Adventure Assurance: 20/21 Ikon Pass holders have the choice to defer adventure to the following season for any reason with no fee, between September 10 and December 10, 2020. For more details, please visit the Adventure Assurance page
  • Double Renewal Savings up to $200 to provide some value back to Ikon Pass holders due to the shortened 19/20 winter season
  • Extended deadlines to get the lowest price available - until May 27, 2020
  • Zero-Interest Payment Plan deadline extension through July 31, 2020 - four easy payments with only $199 down
As with Epic Pass and some mountain-specific passes, some of the new offerings are due in part to issues with the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainty of how the coming season will go. 

The Ikon Pass is available now at Prices increase on May 27, 2020.
