Alterra Mountain Company is an American hospitality company established in 2018 with headquarters in Denver, Colorado. It is privately owned by KSL Capital Partners and Aspen/Snowmass (Henry Crown and Company). It is a conglomerate of several ski resorts that offers a combined season pass.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

In April 2017, KSL and Aspen jointly purchased Intrawest.[2] This was acquisition was followed by Mammoth Resorts[3] a few days later and Deer Valley[4] in August. All of these assets were combined with KSL's Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows ski resort to form Alterra Mountain Company in January 2018.[5]

In late January 2018, Alterra announced the Ikon Pass, a season pass that provides unlimited or restricted access to all of their ski resorts in collaboration with Alta Ski Area, Aspen/Snowmass, Boyne Resorts, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Powdr Corporation, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, SkiBig3, and Snowbird.[6] This is a competitor to Vail Resorts' Epic Pass.[7][8][9][10][11]
