“We are proud to join the Ikon Pass community for Winter 19/20. Skiers will have 7-day access with no blackout days and 5-days with selected blackout dates on Ikon Pass base.”
A-Basin just announced they will be joining the Ikon Pass for the 2019/2020 season and are severing ties with the Epic Pass. The Denver Post points back to a statement made in February by Arapahoe CEO Alan Henceroth where he cited crowded conditions in parking lots and other mountain facilities in making the decision to leave the Epic Pass.
“Arapahoe Basin is thrilled to partner with the Ikon Pass and join its community of like-minded mountain destinations A-Basin is a bold, aspirational mountain with legendary character that invites skiers and riders to find adventure at every turn, an ideal fit for the Ikon Pass.” -CEO Alan Henceroth
Ikon Pass offers access to 40 resorts in the U.S. and overseas. Ikon Pass holders will have 7 days of access to A-Basin with no blackout dates. Skiers and snowboarders with the Ikon Base Pass will have five-day access at Arapahoe with some blackout dates.
“Arapahoe Basin is a beloved brand among skiers and riders, and we are proud that the destination has joined the Ikon Pass community. We can feel winter around the corner as we offer skiers and riders another iconic reason to hit the slopes in Colorado.” –Alterra Chief Marketing Officer Erik Forsell
