Spending the whole season in the same ski resort is too boring for you? With the Ikon Pass you can enjoy the mountains in 41 top destinations worldwide. As of the 2019/20 season, the Matterhorn Ski Paradise in Zermatt is now the first European ski resort to be part of the Ikon Pass.

41 ski resorts in 12 states on 5 continents - that's what the Ikon Pass offers. The season pass is valid in the most famous ski resorts in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Chile. These include Aspen Snowmass, Lake Louise, Mt Buller and The Remarkables. With Zermatt another top ski area will be added as of the 2019/20 season. It's the first one in Europe. In total, the Ikon Pass boasts 719 lifts, 4,857 pistes and 84,385 hectares of skiable terrain.

There are two options of the season pass to choose from: the Ikon Pass and the Ikon Base Pass. With the Ikon Pass skiers have unlimited access to 14 ski areas throughout the season. In the other destinations, the ticket is valid for up to 7 days. The cheaper option is the Ikon Base Pass, with which you can ski unlimited in 12 ski areas and up to 5 days in the rest. With the Ikon Base Pass, however, there are so-called "blackout dates" on which the pass is not valid. In the 2019/20 season these are December 26-31, 2019, January 18-19 and February 15-16, 2020.
