Ikon Pass holders now have access to nearly 10,000 acres of terrain in Utah between Deer Valley Resort, Alta, Snowbird and now Solitude Mountain Resort and Brighton Resort–the most terrain offered in Utah on any season pass.
Earlier this month, Alterra Mountain Company completed its acquisition of Solitude Mountain Resort, located in Big Cottonwood Canyon just 34 miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) and less than an hour from Deer Valley Resort. The mountain offers skiers and riders 77 runs, three bowls and a vertical drop of 2,030 feet across 1,200 acres, plus some of the top off-piste terrain in the country. The base village offers ski-in/ski-out accommodations along with year-round activities for guests.
Brighton, located at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon, boasts one hundred percent of its terrain as accessible by high speed quads, allowing guests to maximize their day of incredible Utah skiing and riding. Both mountains average 500 inches of Utah’s light, fluffy, dry snow, making them a paradise for skiers and riders.
“Brighton Resort is excited to be included in the Ikon Pass and honored to be part of such a premier group of destinations. We look forward to providing an exceptional experience for Ikon Pass holders visiting the Wasatch Range,” said Randy Doyle, president and general manager, Brighton Resort.
“The Ikon Pass is expanding, and with the addition of Solitude Mountain Resort and Brighton Resort, we are excited to offer unparalleled access to Utah, a state known around the world for its snow quality, variety of terrain and accessibility,” said Erik Forsell, chief marketing officer of Alterra Mountain Company. “We are nearly 70 days away from opening day in North America and are thrilled to jump start the ski and snowboard season by adding more premier Ikon Pass destinations for winter 2018/2019.”
The Ikon Pass launched in January 2018 and is a collaboration of industry leaders–Alterra Mountain Company, Aspen Skiing Company, Boyne Resorts, POWDR, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Alta Ski Area, Snowbird, SkiBig3, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Sugarbush Resort and Thredbo.
