“The addition of an Ikon Base Pass combined with the JHMR Grand Pass will afford our Grand pass holders the option to sample up to 37 resorts in addition to skiing or riding unlimited days at JHMR.”

There’s a bit of a plot twist for all the Jackson Hole locals who have been hating on the influx of Ikon Pass skiers and snowboarders that have swarmed the resort. Jackson Hole News & Guide reports 2019/20 JHMR Grand Pass will include Ikon benefits.

Resort spokeswoman Anna Cole listened to the feedback from their customer base and felt like the complimentary inclusion of an Ikon Base Pass would fairly compensate locals who have had to deal with overcrowding on their home turf…which is mostly attributed to the same multi-mountain pass that they will now get for free. 2019/20 JHMR Grand Pass holders will now have unlimited access to 12 resorts, and five days at each of another 25 around the world.

“This has really been something we’ve been working on behind the scenes for quite some time now. We did think it would be a really good benefit to the passholders.” Anna Cole
