    I hear from a normally reliable source that Alta is signing up for next year. Can't verify anything but I also heard that the almost 30% IKON skiers is vastly over estimated.

    I can't believe that with the IKON everywhere that we have not had a maggot find out how much the non Alterra resorts are getting reimbursed.

    It has been stated (or guessed) a few times, maybe not in this thread though?

    Heard from a few reliable little birdies lately that A-basin will be on IKON next year. Should be interesting for IKON to pick up 1/2 the Summit county resorts, that would be hudge for them. Don't know that it'll help with the parking situation much though.

    ?? Do you mean Ikon? Or am I just terrible at reading comprehension? Which is possible.

    It's been stated and guessed, but I don't believe those, or rather, don't believe they tell the full story. For one, I bet it is resort-specific, I doubt that there's one standard deal they give out. Second, I am sure the deal is more intricate than $50 per skier day (I believe that was one of the figures thrown out). Because that would mean that someone who skis mostly at a partner resort would end up costing Alterra a lot of money. I have skied at Eldora a dozen or so days, and MANY at Eldora have Ikon passes; I doubt very much that Alterra is taking a loss on each and every one of us. I suspect that if it's a flat per skier day fee, it also has a cap. For ex, $50/day up to 5 days, then nothing after. Or a graduated payment, $50 for days 1-4, $25 for days 5-8, etc.

    And I doubt that we will ever really find this info out, because I imagine it's super confidential (especially if it is resort specific).

    I've heard between $8-15 per skier day reimbursement for Abasin from Epic, and if they ski Keystone before Abasin that day then Abasin gets $0. If IKON is paying $50 (which I doubt) then no wonder Abasin would want to switch.

    Taos sure was Ikonic this weekend. CO made the trip in force (us included). 15 inches overnight Friday/Saturday , probably double that in places. Love the terrain there, and coverage is awesome right now. STEEP and DEEP!!
    Locals seem amazed with how busy it was Saturday. Lines were long but manageable by CO standards. Patrol did a good job managing the crowds and the snow, popping terrain throughout the weekend. With some hiking and exploring we skied knee/thigh deep all weekend. Kachina never opened, understandably considering snowpack/ history.
    The overnight parking situation is amazing!! We had a primo van spot with free plug-ins walking distance to the base. Good times for sure

    Fack! I was really hoping they would go it alone.

    Did they say if it would be Ikon unlimited or part of the 5/7 day deal?

    I don't know any details. Who knows, Maybe 5/7 on the IKON base, and unlimited on the full IKON. That would make the most sense.

    I just don't think they would've done all the upgrades to F&B if they didn't still want the traffic of a pass like IKON.

    This would be *really* nice. 5 days at A-Basin is about right. I've not skied there in *many* moons, but would love to occasionally. Especially in April when the snow is deep, crowds are gone, and sun is warm.

    If you think crowds are going to be gone in april if Abasin is on Ikon....well I've got some of the best skis every made for slaying big mountains to sell you. They're soul 7s.

    Sorry - I should have said "midweek" in April.

    19/20 Ikon Pass Info

    Edit: LIMITED info. Just pricing. Only big new change is down payment option. And 18/19 passholders save $30 when they renew. Prices increased $50 overall.

    Did the base pass have 5 or 7 days at the non-full areas this year? I thought it was 7its 5 next year... is that a change?

    IIRC the base (cheaper) pass had 5 days, and the more expensive one had 7.

    The more expensive one also showed up on Costco.com for not a whole lot more than the base, so I'll be watching there this time.

    ^^^ Scratch that, just googled. The expensive pass was $999 at Costco, with a $200 Costco gift card back. So $800 vs (IIRC) around $850 if you had just paid cash for the pass earlier.

    The base pass is still cheaper either way, by a good margin.

    Anyone with an icon pass done using it for the season?

    "Ski and ride at select destinations this spring with the purchase of a 19/20 Ikon Pass or Ikon Base Pass."

    Curious which resorts are included here. Also guessing it doesn't kick in until after spring break wraps up (4/1).
