Aspen Skiing Co. announced Friday that chamber of commerce Premier ski passes will go on sale starting Monday for $1,479.
The “Super Early Price” for the full-season pass will be in effect through Sept. 13. All chamber Premier, Senior and Parent passes will include an Ikon Base Pass, which is offered by its sister company Alterra Mountain Co.
The price for the Premier pass increased $90 from last season. However, it includes the “pretty big benefit” of the Ikon Base Pass, currently valued at $749, said Skico Vice President of Communications Jeff Hanle.
The Ikon Base Pass provides unlimited access with limited blackout dates at 12 destinations plus five days each at selected destinations, such as Steamboat, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Basin, Jackson Hole, Big Sky and Alta Snowbird.
The Double Flex chamber pass, good for two days per week, will cost $1,299 if purchased through the Chamber by Sept. 13. The Flex chamber pass, good for one day per week, will cost $939. Those prices increased $60 and $35, respectively.
Hanle said that is in line with past annual pass price increases.
“We typically have an increase each year to cover inflation and the increased cost of doing business,” he said.
Skico revealed in April that it was entering the Ikon Base Pass era when it announced the non-chamber Premier would include the related pass. The non-chamber Premier pass was $1,899 if purchased during the earliest period, which ended May 31. That pass now sells for $2,049 if purchased through Sept. 13.
