Alterra Mountain Company — the owner of Deer Valley Resorts — announced preliminary plans for the 2020-2021 ski season.  

Rusty Gregory -the CEO of Alterra- sent out a press release Monday morning. He said the resort’s priority is the health and safety of the guests, employees, and the local community.

He said to ensure safety the resort will limit visitation. They will try to mitigate overcrowding by prioritizing access for season pass holders. They will also limit the number of daily lift tickets.

There will be spring skiing after all – at least in Colorado – and those with an IKON pass.  The Colorado Dept. of Health approved Arapahoe Basin Ski Area’s request for a partial reopening and the resort will be ready to open by tomorrow (Wednesday).  

But due to high demand, the reservation system that opened Monday night was quickly shut down. The resort expects to have a new system up and running sometime Tuesday.

After an inaugural season the Ikon pass is back for more. The Alterra Mountain Company’s answer to Vail’s Epic Pass will offer access, although in some cases limited, to five Utah resorts.

Alterra Mountain Company spokesperson Kristin Rust said the company was pleased to announce their second season of the Ikon pass.
