Due to pressure from angry pitchfork mobs otherwise know as MVP/Cali4nia Pass members and Mammoth locals, the Ikon Base Pass announced on March 1 has been changed. The price is still $599 but instead of offering just five days of skiing at Mammoth, it will now offer unlimited skiing at Mammoth. Blackout days still apply for the dates of December 26-31, 2018; January 19-20, 2019; and February 16-17, 2019. It also offers limited skiing at other resorts as well.

For and additional $300, at $899 the Ikon Pass has no blackout days and unlimited skiing at Mammoth and 11 other resorts. It also includes seven days at Aspen/Snowmass among other resorts in the United States and Canada.

Not that this pertains to our youthful club, they also originally announced that skiers 80 years of age and older will no longer ski for free. This was probably the only benefit to turning 80. However Mammoth’s Public Relations Manager, Lauren Burke said that they are rethinking that brilliant idea too.

The limitations vary by the pass and resorts. For all the details go to the FAQs page on the Ikon Pass website. It shows all the resorts included and the limitations for each.
