Which resorts?

A couple of North America’s premier skiing destinations are included in the IKON Pass. These include the stylish Aspen Snowmass in Colorado that has the USA’s longest vertical drop; the powder haven of Revelstoke in British Columbia; and the SkiBig3 area of Banff Sunshine, Mount Norquay Lake Louise in the Rockies.

Forbes’ best ski resort in North America for 2019, the infamous Jackson Hole in Wyoming is on the pass. Renowned for its steeps, fresh powder and backcountry wilderness, Jackson Hole is on many adventurous skier’s wish list. Others include Utah’s Snowbird, California’s Squaw Valley and Mammoth Mountain.

The newest addition to this extensive list is Zermatt Matterhorn in Switzerland. At the foot of the iconic Matterhorn mountain, there are the 360km of scenic slopes with fantastic off-piste.
