Dakine launch exclusive Ikon Pass winter gear collection

Alterra Mountain Company and Dakine are launching an exclusive, limited Ikon Pass collection for the coming season.

After outfitting bike park employees and select on-mountain winter staff at Alterra Mountain Company’s 15 North American mountain destinations, Dakine is bringing its technical gear to the Ikon Pass community on October 21.

The Ikon Pass collection will be available for a limited time only on dakine.com and will include Men’s and Women’s Excursion Gloves, and the Heli Pro 24L Backpack. A fixture on the mountain for decades, Dakine’s trusted and durable packs, bags, and accessories are perfect for Ikon Pass holders looking to explore and venture out in the mountains this upcoming winter season.

This collection marks the very first Ikon Pass gloves and snow backpack collection created for the Ikon Pass community and adventure enthusiasts in North America.

“Dakine and Alterra Mountain Company share a fundamental goal – to help skiers and snowboarders have another ‘best day’ on the mountain. With this ethos in mind, we collaborated this season to create a special backpack and glove offering for on-mountain use,” says Pamela Levine, SVP for Dakine.

“Dakine’s commitment to quality, sustainability, and community are common values shared with the Ikon Pass brand and we are proud to be trusted as the official backpack and glove and mitt of choice.”

The year-round partnership between Alterra Mountain Company and Dakine will continue to expand, bringing events and activations at Ikon Pass destinations this winter, as well as outfitting select on-mountain staff with Dakine gloves and backpacks.

Retail shop-in-shop locations are also being developed for Vermont, West Virginia and California, where consumers will be able to purchase premium Dakine technical gear for the mountains or lifestyle bags for travel and everyday use.
