    At Sunday River and sugarloaf you have to show your Ikon and get a day ticket. Can you have someone else grab it for you? Or do you need to be there, in person, with id? I have skied both places in my Ikon but I can't remember

    At Sugarloaf you have to walk to a ticket window or guest services desk and physically present your Ikon pass in person for them to scan and give you a day ticket.

    I guess it depends on the mood of the ticket staff. I have picked up my daughters ticket with her pass for her while she was booting up. YMMV

    Does anybody remember when Alta sold a discounted mid-season pass on Feb 1? Did they stop that since IKON was gifted to us by the all knowing one?

    The management at Alta and Snowbird need to know how we feel. They are showing that they don't care about their season pass holders.

    Hadn’t snowed in over a week mediocre conditions and still an ikonic cluster fuck that they have to close the canyon because too much traffic.

    Blackout powder day Prez weekend and the place is empty. hmm wonder why?

    Fuck the ikon pass and the hoards of beaters that it brings.

    seems we need to start doing a lot more whining and crying like Jackson and aspens locals.

    Seems to disprove, or at least knock out much of the powder chasing theory about Ikon pass holders if they are still over crowding hills with shit conditions.

    I suspect Ikon pass holders do travel a bit more because of the pass options, but I doubt it is really that significantly different. For myself and the Ikon pass holders I know they are traveling about the same amount as before Ikon, and before The mountain collective pass as well.

    I would love to see the actually numbers and not just a bunch of whiny skiers. I don't think Ikon has affected Mammoth much, if at all. We still habe incredibly busy days, and fantastic empty days, just like we have had for the past 40 plus years I have been skiing there.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    The big difference in a weekend like last weekend in LCC is all the Ikon pass holders here from out of town that planned their vacations months ago. Before the Ikon pass most season pass holders are locals and would stay home with conditions like we had.

    Correct me if I am wrong but all those locals got was a base level pass added on to their Season Pass thereby increasing the crowding at your hill.
    Ooof!

    Yup. And we have been seeing a ton of traffic from Tahoe locals as well because of their shitty winter. Meanwhile we can't even get a god damn discount at another Ikon hill. AND they dropped our wasatch benefit days from 6 to 4 this year. One day at Alta when you are partnered with them? That's the best you can do for your loyal customers Snowbird?

    Cry me a river. I saw a 10% increase in my seasons pass price and all I get is the dubious value of a preferred parking area.
    Ooof!

    Which just goes to prove that it's the snow not just the pass itself. If the snow in Tahoe was any good they would stay home.

    Lots of locals choose to ski just powder days.

    For those who missed it (and didn't understand the Aspen/JHMR comments), the 20/21 Ikon is up on website and goes on sale next week. Biggest change is JHMR and Aspen will cost extra to add to the basic pass ($150 extra, I guess Basic+). A couple Eastern hills got added as unlimited. Stratton and Sugarbush can expect to become the Crystal Mountain/Solitude of the East.

    ^^^ Thanks for that.

    In the grand scheme, $ 150 to add those hills will mean little to nothing other than to add to the IKON bottom line.
    Ooof!

    The IKON pass has definitely affected Utah, but it's also very true that the sudden end of winter in California is a bigger factor. I was already out there and know a bunch of other people who did the same. It's a short, relatively inexpensive flight. I may be back later in March if things don't turn around soon.

    Makes upgrading to the regular Ikon a bit more enticing. I've always wanted to ski JH, and Aspen seems like a good spot to hit a few different ski areas while being able to stay in one location, but too many other places on the pass for me to justify the upgrade unless I can convince myself to get the full pass and ski the holidays. Funny how I used to avoid skiing the holidays at all costs, but now it looks like it could be worth spending more for relatively quiet skiing.
    Also interesting that you can get a single mountain pass for Crystal for $1299, or just get a Ikon Base with no blackouts there. I'm sure all the longtime Crystal pass holders appreciate the options.

    Can anyone tell me where I can find an area that has great snow, great terrain, close to a big city or an easy flight, affordable, not crowded, and not on IKON pass or any other mega pass. I'm tired of this IKON bs.
