DENVER (AP) — A ski company that owns resorts from Quebec to Colorado says it will cost between $599 and $899 for a pass granting access to 26 resorts across North America.
Denver-based Alterra Mountain Company announced Thursday that the cheaper version of the new Ikon Pass will offer unlimited access to eight resorts and restricted access to 18 others. The more expensive version will offer unlimited access to a dozen resorts and restricted access to 14 others.
The Ikon Pass includes resorts in nine states and four Canadian provinces and is expected to rival Vail Resorts’ popular Epic Pass, which offers skiers access to more than a dozen resorts in three countries.
The dueling multi-resort passes are the latest sign of a consolidating ski industry.
