WINTER PARK — Next winter's Ikon Pass will go on sale March 5, and Alterra Mountain Co. unveiled some changes for its multi-mountain pass, including new discounts and, perhaps most notable, a payment plan for early buyers.

The new payment plan includes a $199 deposit due by April 24, followed by four monthly payments from June to September.

Another benefit to families includes a discount for children ages five through 12 if their parents get a pass before that April 24 deadline. Adults who buy a full Ikon Pass can purchase as many as two child passes for $199 each. Those with an Ikon Base pass can get up to two child passes for $159 each.

The Ikon Pass, which debuted in January 2018, will include 38 destinations for the 2019-20 winter, including ski resorts in 12 states as well as New Zealand, Chile, Canada and Japan.

The full Ikon Pass, offers unlimited access to 14 destinations, including Winter Park Resort, plus limited days at an additional 23 resorts. It costs $949, but those who bought this season’s pass can get up to a $30 discount.

A cheaper option, the Ikon Base pass, allows access to 12 destinations, with blackout dates during holidays, plus a limited number of days at an additional 25 resorts. It costs $649, with the same discount of up to $30 available to renewing passholders.
