Skiers and snowboarders who buy the full Ikon Pass will have access to seven days at RED with no so-called ‘blackout dates.

Ikon Base Pass holders will have access to five days each, with selected blackout dates.

The addition of RED brings to 44 the number of ski areas included in the Ikon Pass in the Americas, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

Located in Rossland in western Canada, RED Mountain is considered a trailblazer with an independent spirit.

Some call it the last great, unspoilt resort.

It is the first stop on Canada’s famous Powder Highway and has an annual average of 7.6 metres of snowfall

The mountain is said to be in the top 10 largest ski destinations and number one for most acres per skier in North America.

It has continued to open new terrain since 2013 and introduced $10 pay-per-run inbounds snowcat skiing.

“As one of the first ski resorts in North America, RED Mountain defines authenticity, anchored by an emotional connection to its history, community, guests and staff,” said Howard Katkov, CEO & Chairman.

“To stay sustainable and current in the ever-changing ski travel market, we are proud to become the latest Ikon Pass partner and join a list of iconic mountain destinations that share the same devotion to authenticity and character.”

The Alterra Mountain Company, which operates the Ikon Pass, said it was delighted to welcome RED to its stable.

“We are thrilled to invite Ikon Pass holders to RED Mountain and expand access into the great Monashee Mountains of Canada,” said Erik Forsell, Alterra’s Chief Marketing Officer.

“We are always looking for partners that define an independent spirit, incredible offerings, and a love of the mountains, and RED lives that each day.”

Ikon Guarantee – What the company says

Each Ikon Pass comes with free Adventure Assurance, which means that if 2020-21 Ikon Pass holders do not use their pass after June 4, 2020, for any reason, they can choose to receive a full credit of their purchase price for their unused 20/21 Ikon Pass to be used toward a 21/22 Ikon Pass.

In addition, starting 10th September 2020, Ikon Pass holders select a plan that works for them before 1st October that will provide them a credit in the event their Ikon Pass destination selection is closed due to an eligible COVID-19 event between 10th December 2020 and 11th April 2021.
