SAM Magazine—Denver, Sept. 1, 2021—Ikon Pass has expanded its European connections to include Dolomiti Superski in Italy and Kitzbühel, Austria, which join Zermatt, Switzerland, on the Ikon Pass. The three European legends offer up to 21 days in the Alps for winter 2021-22. Ikon Passholders now have access at 47 global destinations across five continents and nine countries.
Dolomiti Superski is one of the world's largest ski circuses, encompassing 12 mountains, 450 lifts, and 889 runs. Kitzbühel includes three mountains—Kitzbühel, Kirchberg and Mittersill—with 57 lifts and 143 miles of slopes on 96 trails, including the famous Streif downhill race course.
Ikon Passholders will have seven days of access to Dolomiti Superski’s 12 mountains, and seven-day access to Kitzbühel (including Kirchberg and Mittersill). Those with the Ikon Base Pass get five-day access to both regions. All the above come with no blackout dates. Ikon Session Passholders have no access to the European resorts.
“The addition of Dolomiti Superski in Italy and Kitzbühel in Austria offers Ikon Passholders European access to some of the most renowned terrain and quintessential winter experiences in the Alps,” said Alterra chief marketing officer Erik Forsell.
“We are very proud to be part of the Ikon Pass community, representing Italy and Europe,” said Dr. Marco Pappalardo, marketing director for Dolomiti Superski. “We are sure the stunning landscape and unique experiences found in the Dolomites will charm Ikon Passholders and bring many new skiers and riders to the Italian Alps.”
“We are thrilled to be the first Austrian destination to join the Ikon Pass community,” said Christian Wörister and Anton Bodner, board of directors members for KitzSki. They noted Kitzbühel is known for "perfectly shaped ski pistes, varied terrain, outstanding on-mountain huts and restaurants, and stunning scenery."
