Getting Your Ikon Base Pass

If you have added an Ikon Base Pass to your Gold Pass, you will receive an email from Ikon over the summer to upload a photo and sign your waiver. Once you have uploaded a photo and signed the waiver, Ikon will send you your Ikon Base pass in the mail using the billing address you used to purchase your Gold Pass. Passes will be mailed out starting in October. If you haven't received your Ikon Pass in the mail, you can also pick it up at any Ikon resort once they're open for the season.
