The Ikon Pass has announced the addition of two new resorts to the 50 plus resort pass, and it’s good news for skiers and snowboarders as Lotte Arai in Japan and Panorama Mountain Resort in Canada come on board for the 2022/2023 season.

With three new partners announced earlier this year, Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley in France, Sun Valley in Idaho and Snowbasin in Utah, members of the Ikon Pass community now have access to more than 50 iconic global mountain destinations in 10 countries across the Americas, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.

Lotte Arai joins Niseko United in Hokkaido as the two Japan resorts on the pass, while Panorama joins SkiBig3 in Banff/Lake Louise, Revelstoke and Red in Canada.

Ikon Pass holders will have access to seven days at Panorama with no blackout dates, and Ikon Base Pass holders will have access to five days, with select blackout dates. Panorama will also be available on the Ikon Session Pass.

“Panorama Mountain Resort is thrilled to join the Ikon Pass community and showcase all the resort has to offer in this special part of Canada,” said Steve Paccagnan, President and Chief Executive Officer, Panorama Mountain Resort.

“Each season we host skiers and riders from around the world with warm and welcoming Canadian hospitality, and our team and community look forward to welcoming Ikon Pass holders to experience Panorama and the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia.”
