Ikon Pass Announces Partnership With Thredbo

June 27th, 2018
  

It was announced yesterday that Thredbo is now part of the Ikon Pass, meaning Ikon Pass holders receive up to 7-days lift access to Thredbo as one of the benefits. This places Thredbo in the company of some of the best resorts in the world, including Jackson Hole, Mammoth Mountain, Squaw Valley and Aspen.

Unlike Perisher’s Epic pass, which gives pass-holders access to all Epic Pass resorts, a Thredbo season pass or 365 pass is not an Ikon Pass, and does not carry the benefits of an Ikon Pass. However, a Thredbo is also part of the Mountain Collective and Thredbo passes will continue to receive a 50% discount at Mountain Collective resorts in the 2018/19 northern hemisphere winter.

Below is the press release announcing Thredbo’s partnership with Ikon:

PRESS RELEASE 

DENVER, CO, June 26, 2018Ikon Pass, the new standard in season passes, announces Thredbo as its newest partner, now offering access to nearly 26,000 hectares (more than 64,000 acres) at 27 premier mountain destinations across the globe. The Ikon Pass is available for purchase at www.ikonpass.com and through selected travel partners.

In addition to access to 26 destinations in North America, all Ikon Pass holders can enjoy skiing and riding throughout Thredbo’s 2018 winter season. Ikon Pass holders will have seven-day access to Thredbo on the Ikon Pass with no black-out dates, and five-day access on the Ikon Base Pass, with selected black-out dates.

Thredbo, Australia’s premier snow destination, offers an incredible snow experience with its impressive mountain accessing 480 hectares of varied terrain and its 672 vertical meters providing the country’s longest snow runs, combined with its picturesque alpine village at the base of the mountain which creates a vibrant après atmosphere.

“As we continue to curate partners for the Ikon Pass, we look for destinations that share our passion for the mountains and are dedicated to creating enduring memories for their guests. Thredbo fits right in and we are thrilled to welcome the leading destination in the Southern Hemisphere to the Ikon Pass community,” said Erik Forsell, Chief Marketing Officer of Alterra Mountain Company. “Australia is full of passionate skiers and riders who can now take advantage of an endless winter with the Ikon Pass as they hit the slopes of Thredbo throughout their winter, before experiencing more iconic destinations in the Northern Hemisphere.”

Thredbo joins a group of North American industry leaders that make up the Ikon Pass – Alterra Mountain Company, Aspen Skiing Company, Boyne Resorts, POWDR, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Alta Ski Area, Snowbird, SkiBig3, Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Sugarbush Resort. Each demonstrates integrity, character and independence that is reflected in their mountains and guests.

Thredbo is thrilled to join the Ikon Pass as its Australian partner and we feel privileged to be the first Southern Hemisphere destination offered to pass holders,” said Jordan Rodgers, General Manager, Thredbo. “The Ikon Pass is a sensational option for skiers and snowboarders who love to travel to incredible mountain experiences and we look forward to providing Ikon Pass holders access to Australia’s premier snow destination.”
