It is the latest European resort to join the lift pass grouping. Zermatt in Switzerland, Kitzbühel in Austria and Dolomiti Superski in Italy are already members. Sun Valley in Idaho and Snowbasin in Utah are also joining.
It describes Chamonix as “a beloved and aspirational destination in the French Alps. Big mountain terrain meets the charming valley villages steeped with French charm, food, and high-alpine culture. ”
The Ikon Pass covers all the areas in the Chamonix Valley:
- Grands Montets
- Balme (Le Tour/Vallorcine)
- Les Houches
“The Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley is delighted to be included in the prestigious IKON ski pass as from winter 2022/23,” said Claire Burnet from the resort’s tourist office.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for Chamonix to welcome more North American skiers, particularly as we are the only French destination to be included in the pass.
“Americans and Canadians consider Chamonix to be one of the most iconic European ski resorts, so we have no doubt that they will appreciate this initiative.”
From next winter IKON pass-holders may enjoy up to 7 days skiing in our beautiful valley at no extra lift pass cost. Passes go on sale on 10th March 2022”
This winter Kitzbühel and Dolomiti Superski joined Zermatt as Ikon Pass resorts:
Ikon Pass holders will have access to seven days combined across the five ski areas of the Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley with no blackout dates.
Ikon Base Pass holders will have access to five days combined, with selected blackout dates.
Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley is not available on the Ikon Session Pass.
