Ikon Pass at Arapahoe Basin

Make the most of your Ikon Pass at A-Basin

Arapahoe Basin is not to be missed. Named "most challenging terrain in Colorado" (and #4 most-challenging ski area in the West) for the second year in a row by SKI Magazine readers, we are also known for our accessible mountain and ease of navigation, phenomenal yet affordable food, close-in parking (almost all free), welcoming and laid-back vibe, and stunning high-alpine views. 

A-Basin is 90 minutes from the Denver airport, one hour from Winter Park, and 30 minutes from Copper Mountain. We do not have on-site lodging but are easily accessible from the towns of Summit County and have a great lodging partner in The PAD Silverthorne.

Ikon Pass FAQ

Do I need to make a reservation at A-Basin?


Can you print my Ikon Pass?

You will receive your Ikon Pass in the mail. We will re-print it for free one time. After the first time, there will be a $5 charge each time you need your pass to be re-issued. 

What if I run out of days at A-Basin?

You can use your Ikon Pass holder friends and family discount to save on lift tickets for yourself. Or, grab one of our multi-day packs. We will not be selling a spring pass. 

How do I buy discount friends and family tickets? Is there a limit?

You can purchase as many of these as you like in a season. ALL TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED ONLINE. You will need your Ikon Pass number and should be sure to input the ticket-user's name, not yours.
