We’ve become so accustomed to him carving into ocean waves and along the rainbow mountains that seeing him on the side of a snowy slope feels almost jarring. But of course, Thovex doesn’t touch anything—whether it be snow, water, or dirt—unless he’s able to do it in his distinctive insane style.

There’s been a lot of buzz lately surrounding Alterra Mountain Company and their Ikon Pass. Since launching in January, the list of resorts and destinations keeps growing and growing—to the point that it’s hard to keep track. So, we thought we’d sift through the noise and lay it all out nicely for you.
