HUNTSVILLE — One of the Ogden area's most popular ski resorts is making a change.

Snowbasin, one of three ski areas in the Weber County area, announced Thursday it will be a part of the Ikon Pass and the Mountain Collective pass for the 2022-23 winter season. The move means Snowbasin will no longer be a part of the Epic Pass, which was started by Vail Resorts — the company that owns Park City Mountain. Snowbasin first joined the Epic Pass back in 2019.

Ikon Pass holders will have seven days of access at Snowbasin, and Ikon Base Plus pass holders will have five days, according to the Huntsville resort's website. The purchase of a full Ikon Pass includes unlimited access to over a dozen resorts in the United States and Canada, including Solitude. Other Utah resorts included in the Ikon Pass that have a limited number of days included are Alta, Snowbird, Deer Valley and Brighton, according to Ikon's website.

The Mountain Collective pass allows for up to two days of access at each included resort, as well as Snowbasin during the next ski season. Among those resorts on the list this year were Alta and Snowbird.

Snowbasin will join the two passes along with Sun Valley, an Idaho ski resort located near Ketchum. Both resorts are owned by Grand America Hotels and Resorts.

"We are excited to start a new partnership program for the 2022-23 season," said Bruce Fery, CEO of Grand America Hotels and Resorts, in a news release Thursday. "As we continue our legacy as two premier independently owned and operated US ski resorts, we look forward to welcoming Ikon Pass and Mountain Collective Pass Holders and providing the legendary experience for which Sun Valley and Snowbasin are known."

Both Sun Valley and Snowbasin were rated among the top 10 ski resorts in the West by SKI Magazine readers, with Sun Valley being ranked No.1 and Snowbasin at No.8. Snowbasin was a venue during the 2002 Olympics.

Snowbasin will also offer a new premier platinum pass for the 2022-23 season, which will include an Ikon Base pass, which offers access to 40 additional ski resorts, including Solitude and Snowbird.

Snowbasin passes are now on sale and can be purchased online, while Ikon passes go on sale March 10.
