All of the Details for the 2021/2022 Ikon Pass — On Sale Now!

by Leap on September 27, 2021 6 Steamboat Springs

Ikon Pass - Adult and child snowboarders Fall is here and that means the clock is ticking on being able to lock in the savings for the upcoming season's ski passes. We enjoyed getting outside in that crisp mountain air to hit the socially distant slopes this past winter and we already are looking forward to the 2021-2022 ski season! We have frogciting news to share. We jumped into Ikon Pass sales (and renewals) this past year and are offering the Ikon Pass for 2021-2022 until it sells out.

Passes went on sale March 11, 2021. The earlier you buy the better the price you'll get. Definitely purchase by late fall before they sell out. The price goes up Oct. 15, 2021. The Ikon Pass will likely sell out by early December. If you already own an Ikon Pass, get the renewal to save some green.

There's a new benefit for Ikon Pass holders in 2021-2022. Ikon Pass holders get access to untouched powder and crispy corduroy with free Ikon Pass First Tracks, once per month (January through March) at select destinations on designated days. Grab early morning laps before the lifts open to the public. Nice!

There’s a lot to go over so let’s hop to it! We will walk you through the Ikon Pass levels, benefits and the resorts that accept the pass. Plus we’ll talk about advance reservations.

Of course, seeing how the 2019-2020 season ended abruptly, you may be nervous about spending money in advance for the ski season or wondering what health and safety procedures will still be in effect. Having an Ikon Pass toadally paid off in 2020-2021 in terms of resort access. Adventure Assurance (free with Ikon Pass purchase) may help you buy with confidence. Should you not be able to use your 2021/2022 Ikon Pass after purchase, for any reason, you may elect to defer and receive a full credit of your purchase price to be used toward a 2022/2023 Ikon Pass. You must elect to defer your unused pass in My Account by December 9, 2021. The Adventure Assurance link breaks down all of the possible scenarios, from partial to full resort closures.

Here is what to expect at the Ikon destinations for 2021-2022 skiing and snowboarding. Keep hopping back for updates as the next ski season approaches!

Be sure to check on any travel restrictions, either where you live or at your ski destination, so you know what to expect. For example, If you want to ski at any of the Aspen Snowmass ski destinations in the 2021-2022 season, you'll need to wear a mask indoors due to local regulations. Some destinations require a lift ticket reservation (see down below). That could change as the situation changes. As the situation is fluid, always be sure to double-check the requirements for any destination you plan to visit, as well as your own state's requirements or recommendations once you return.

We sell the Ikon Pass, Ikon Base Pass, Ikon Base Plus Pass and Ikon Session Pass 4-Day. If you already have an Ikon Pass and want to renew it, we can help with that too. We sell discounted Ikon Pass Renewal tickets, Ikon Base Pass Renewal tickets, Ikon Base Pass Plus Renewal tickets and Ikon 4-Day Session Pass Renewals. Here are the deets on all of the Ikon Pass options.

Ikon Pass 2021-2022 Season

The 2021-2022 Season Ikon Pass and Ikon Pass Renewal are good for the entire ski season; however, some resorts have unlimited days of skiing and riding while others limit the pass to seven days of skiing. If you plan to ski holidays, this pass is the one to get because it has no blackout dates.

The 2021-2022 Season Ikon Pass has several benefits, such as:

  • Early Booking Privileges
  • No Blackout Dates
  • 10 Friends and Family discount tickets (25% off window rate, excluding Zermatt)
  • 15% off retail, food and beverage (excluding alcohol and hard goods) at Steamboat, Winter Park, Copper, Eldora, Palisades Tahoe (formerly Squaw/Alpine), June, Big Bear, Mammoth (on mountain only), Stratton, Tremblant, Blue Mountain, Solitude, Crystal and Snowshoe.

The 2021-2022 Ikon Pass is accepted at the following U.S. and international destinations. Most mountains have unlimited days, but some are limited to seven days (followed by "7"). At some mountains, you can go directly to the lift, but at those marked with an asterisk (*), you’ll need to check in at the ticket office first. Mountains with an "R" mean you’ll need to make a Lift Ticket Reservation before coming to the mountain. The pass also comes with early booking privileges for winter trips and 10% off for summer trips. New passholders get spring skiing (marked with an "S").

The Ikon Base Pass and Ikon Base Pass Renewal have a lot of the benefits of the Season Ikon Pass, but with more limited days (for some locations) and a few blackout dates for select destinations. It covers most of the same resorts as the above season Ikon Pass, except the Ikon base Pass excludes Jackson Hole and the Aspen mountains. If the Aspens or Jackson Hole are a deal breaker for you, hop on down to the Ikon Base Plus Pass, which includes them and has all of the otherwise same conditions of this Ikon Base Pass.

  • Other benefits include eight friends and Family discount tickets (25% off window rate), excluding Zermatt, Aspen and Jackson Hole.

If you do not plan to ski at the excluded destinations, or the limited access at some mountains works for your travel plans, the Ikon Base Pass can save some money over the season Ikon Pass. The following resorts are included on the Ikon Base Pass. Access is unlimited for many resorts, and is limited to five days for others (marked with a "5"). The resorts with blackout dates are followed with a B. For destinations marked with an asterisk (*), you cannot go directly to the lift. You’ll have to check in at the ticket office first.

Ikon 4-Day Session Pass

If you are taking only one or two short trips this ski season, the 4-Day Ikon Session Pass or 4-Day Sessions Pass Renewal may work for you. The “no-frills” Ikon Session Pass offers four days of restricted access to a more limited selection of resorts than the full season Ikon Pass or Ikon Base Passes. The Ikon Session Pass also has blackout dates for all its destinations. The Ikon Session Pass does not include Friends and Family tickets, spring skiing, on-mountain discounts or discounts for adding additional days.

The Ikon Session Pass has access to most of the above season Ikon Pass destinations, but it excludes:

  • Aspens
  • Deer Valley
  • Alta/Snowbird
  • Jackson Hole
  • Zermatt

Ikon Session blackout dates include:

  • Dec. 26, 2021 to Jan. 2, 2022
  • Jan 15-16, 2022
  • Feb 19-20, 2022
  • July 2 - 17, 2022 (Thredbo only)

Keep in mind that some destinations require Advance Lift Ticket Reservations, so be sure to check on your destination and book your dates as early as you can.

Advance Lift Ticket Reservations

Due to COVID-19, some resorts require all Ikon Pass holders to make an Advance Lift Ticket Reservation before arriving at the mountain. In order to provide priority access to Ikon Pass holders, many destinations will temporarily regulate or eliminate a number of day tickets in order to limit capacity at the mountain and avoid overcrowding. Access at Ikon Pass destinations will vary. The reservations page provides links to reservation status as well as opening dates for each resort and whether masks are required indoors and/or outdoors.

For 2021-2022, you will need to make reservations at:

  • Jackson Hole, WY (can make 2021-2022 reservations starting Oct. 21, 2021)
  • Taos Ski Valley, NM (can make 2021-2022 reservations starting Oct. 21, 2021)
  • Alta requires parking reservations for weekend and holidays

Hop back as the 2021-2022 season approaches for an updated list. An Ikon Pass or Ikon Base Pass user may make up to 10 reservations at a time at each unlimited destination, based on availability. An unused reservation may be canceled up to 11 a.m. MT the same day of a scheduled reservation. Repeat "no shows" result in a 30-day pass deactivation. Friends and Family do not need a separate reservation and may arrive with the Ikon Pass holder on his or her reservation.

The following destinations required advance reservations for the 2020-2021 season. (Note that these are subject to change for 2021-2022, so check the status of each individual resort you plan to visit):

  • Arapahoe Basin, CO (not planning to have reservations this year)
  • Aspen Mountain, CO (reservations could be possible this season)
  • Aspen Highlands, CO (reservations could be possible this season)
  • Snowmass, CO (reservations could be possible this season)
  • Buttermilk, CO (reservations could be possible this season)
  • Big Sky Resort, MT
  • Brighton, UT
  • Crystal Mountain, WA
  • Jackson Hole, WY (can make 2021-2022 reservations starting Oct. 21, 2021)
  • Lake Loiuse, AB
  • Loon Mountain, NH
  • Taos Ski Valley, NM (can make 2021-2022 reservations starting Oct. 21, 2021)
  • The Summit at Snoqualmie, WA
  • Windham Mountain, NY (Ikon Pass Reservations not anticipated)
  • Winter Park, CO

Which Ikon Pass is right for you? Whichever one you choose, be sure to purchase your discount Ikon Pass before the next ski season gets underway to save money before these deals melt away. If you need lodging, look to Undercover Tourist to get a hoppin' deal on hotel rooms or car rentals in destinations such as Aspen Snowmass, Park City and Lake Tahoe

BE WARNED! If you buy your Ikon Pass from Undercover Tourist all you get is a print out eTicket. What does that mean? It means instead of getting a sturdy pass that you can go directly to the lifts with, you carry around a piece of paper that may have to be scanned at each lift. Most passes have RFID chips that open turnstiles. In situations like this your Undercover Tourist eTicket printout won't work. For Disney and Universal, UT is great. For Ikon passes their eTicket will turn into a season of hassles.

Hi Michael!

While you receive a confirmation email after your initial order, you should also receive a physical Ikon Pass from us (the same pass that you would receive directly from Ikon). For the 2021-2022 season, those physical passes will ship this fall. If you purchased with us previously and did not receive your physical pass, please give us a call at 1 (800) 846-1302 so we can help.

Hoppy planning!

Questions:

- When do they cut off sales? Is there any chance that they’ll close sales soon?

- When do they typically raise prices to the “normal” price?

- They’ve already cut the price for “child” tickets. Is there any chance that they’ll cut the prices for other tickets too? (Don’t have a child anymore.)

Trying to figure out when I might get the pass, so if you have no thoughts, would appreciate it. And thanks for all of the info!

Hi Mark!

You are very welcome - thanks for taking the time to say hi! We do not have an end date for pass sales, but it is usually in early December. We also don't know exact dates that prices are expected to rise just yet, but the renewal price goes up May 4. In 2020, prices went up in early June (which was atypical). We have also seen prices increase in August and September, so if you can swing it, we'd definitely lock in your ticket as soon as you're able!

Keep hopping!

I live 2 minutes from Blue Mountain in Canada.

I have not used my Ikon pass (ski hill closed) and now Blue will open on Feb.16th. I would like to ski but is it worth using my Ikon pass for 6 weeks? Is there any compensation? Shall I defer and try to buy a 5x7 pass although I heard they are sold out.

Please advise.

Hi Aggie!

We'd advise you to follow the Adventure Assurance link since your mountain has been closed. If you don't use the pass this season, you may be able to roll the money towards a 2021-2022 pass. You'd need to request the deferral by April 11. Hope this helps!

Hoppy planning!
