Alyeska Joins the Ikon Pass

Alterra Mountain Company continues adding resorts to the Ikon Pass for next season with Alaska’s Alyeska Resort the latest to join the club. Located in Girdwood, Alyeska features four quad chairlifts and a 60 passenger aerial tram on 1,610 acres of private land. With the addition of Alyeska and Snow Valley, California for next season, Ikon can now take skiers to 56 destinations, most of which are partnered with Alterra rather than owned outright. Alyeska continues to be owned and operated by Pomeroy Lodging, a Canadian hotel operator with no other ski resorts in its portfolio.

“We are thrilled to expand into Alaska and invite the Ikon Pass community to discover Alyeska Resort,” said Erik Forsell, Chief Marketing Officer at Alterra Mountain Company. “Alyeska Resort is truly an iconic destination with its storied terrain, stunning views, scenic tram and adventurous atmosphere.”

Full Ikon Pass holders will be able to ski 7 unrestricted days at Alyeska while Ikon Base passholders can use 5 days subject to blackout dates. The first Ikon Pass price increase for next season is coming next Friday, April 21st, about a month earlier than last year.
