Passes for 2022-2023 went on sale March 14, 2022. The earlier you buy, the better the price you'll get. Definitely purchase by the end of November before they the Ikon Pass sells out. For reference, the price went up last year on Oct. 15, 2022, so you'll really want to purchase well before that. The Ikon Pass was sold out at Undercover Tourist by December 1, 2021. If you already own an Ikon Pass, get the renewal to save some green.

One toadally cool detail you might want to know is that if you purchase the 2022-2023 Ikon Pass now, you can use it to ski at select destinations in spring 2022 (some available right now and others after a certain date):

We love spring skiing with the blue skies and warmer temperatures. For spring skiing 2022, just go to the ticket window or season pass office to have the pass from this year (21/22) printed to use until the end of the season. Then in the fall, you will receive the 22/23 pass in the mail.

If these locations 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 for $200 more (prices subject to change so purchase early). This pass in non-refundable.

Ikon Base Plus Pass

Ikon Pass - Snowboarder riding down mountain

The Ikon Base Plus Pass and the Ikon Base Plus Pass Renewal have all of the same benefits, limitations and blackout dates (for the same destinations) as the Ikon Base Pass, except Ikon Base Pass Plus includes a few extra resorts not covered by the Ikon Base Pass, which is why it costs $200 more. The Ikon Base Plus can be used at 50 destinations with unlimited access to 13 destinations and up to five days at 36 select destinations, including the six mountains not available on the Ikon Base Pass:

  • Jackson Hole, Wyoming - R
  • Aspen Snowmass, Colorado
  • Deer Valley Resort, Utah
  • Alta Ski Area, Utah
  • Sun Valley, Idaho
  • Snowbasin, Utah

These added destinations are all subject to the same (above) blackout dates as the Ikon Base Pass. You must make reservations to use the pass at Jackson Hole. This pass will save you a little compared to the Ikon Pass if you're cool with the blackout periods and having five days at select resorts instead of seven.

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 2022-2023, you will need to make reservations at:

  • Jackson Hole
  • Taos Ski Valley
  • Big Sky Resort
  • The Summit at Snoqualmie
  • Loon Mountain
  • Brighton

Hop back as the 2022-2023 season approaches for an updated list and the date you can start reserving. 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.

Adventure Assurance Program

You may notice that the Ikon Pass is non-refundable. However, Adventure Assurance is included with your Ikon Pass to give you peace of mind about buying early. If you are nervous about possible situations that could arise that could make using your pass difficult, hop over to the Adventure Assurance page to learn more. Basically, if you don't use your pass at all (including spring skiing) by Dec. 8, 2022, you can elect to defer it as credit towards an Ikon product for the following season. You can get insurance through SPOT insurance. The Affirm payment plan is only available when purchasing through Ikon directly.

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. In fact, be sure to add the car rental to your Ikon Pass or hotel purchase to unlock deeper discounts by bundling the purchases together.

Any idea what the spring access for new pass holders will be this season? I am hoping to get some late March and April days at Snowshoe and Sugarbush if it mirrors last year’s offering.

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!
