Ikon Pass Announces Unparalleled Access to Utah with the Addition of Solitude Mountain Resort and Brighton Resort


Now Offering Five Destinations in Utah

holders now have access to nearly 10,000 acres of terrain in
Utah between Deer Valley Resort, Alta, Snowbird, and now Solitude
Mountain Resort and Brighton Resort – the most terrain offered in Utah
on any season pass.

Earlier this month, Alterra Mountain Company completed its acquisition
of Solitude Mountain Resort located in Big Cottonwood Canyon just 34
miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) and less than
an hour from Deer Valley Resort. The mountain offers skiers and riders
77 runs, three bowls, and a vertical drop of 2,030 feet across 1,200
acres, plus some of the most impressive off-piste terrain in the
country. The quaint base village offers ski-in/ski-out accommodations
along with year-round activities for guests.

Brighton, located at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon, boasts one
hundred percent of its terrain as accessible by high-speed quads,
allowing guests to maximize their day of incredible Utah skiing and
riding. Both mountains average 500 inches of Utah's light, fluffy, dry
snow, making them a paradise for skiers and riders.

"Brighton Resort is excited to be included in the Ikon Pass and honored
to be part of such a premier group of destinations. We look forward to
providing an exceptional experience for Ikon Pass holders visiting the
Wasatch Range," said Randy Doyle, President & General Manager, Brighton

"The Ikon Pass is expanding, and with the addition of Solitude Mountain
Resort and Brighton Resort, we are excited to offer unparalleled access
to Utah, a state known around the world for its snow quality, variety of
terrain, and accessibility," said Erik
, Chief Marketing Officer of Alterra Mountain Company. "We
are nearly 70 days away from opening day in North America and are
thrilled to jump start the ski and snowboard season by adding more
premier Ikon Pass destinations for winter 2018/2019."


Unlimited access to Solitude Mountain Resort is available on the Ikon
Pass with no blackout dates, and unlimited access with holiday
restrictions is available on the Ikon Base Pass for winter 2018/2019.

with the guest in mind, to provide the best experience possible. With 29
destinations, in 9 states, four Canadian provinces, and on two
continents, the Ikon Pass is the gateway to a like-minded community,
