Has anyone here used their Ikon pass at Snowshoe? Any extra steps needed (like, I don’t know, getting it activated or something ast the Depot) before it can be used?

My buddy and I skied right up to Ballhooter - no issue.  His wife’s Ikon did not work and she had to go to the Depot and sign the waiver.  Kind of a crap shoot I guess.

Hmm, OK. My son and I are planning on being there this Saturday for the first time this season. We were planning on starting at the standard day parking near top of the world and skiing widowmaker/camp 99, but maybe we should start near ballhooter in case we need to swing by the depot…if the parking lot across from the depot open for day use or have they already closed it off so that only lodging guests can use it?

Not sure but there is 15 min parking next to the depot.  Maybe stop there first.

Gotta say, I have not had a ton of luck finding a space in the 15 minute parking in the past. Anyway we will figure it out. Thanks.

Try calling them with your pass ID #s handy and asking.

I skied Snowshoe last week during the Day of Mourning for HW.  I did not do anything special to activate my IKON pass.  Skied right up to the lift and they scanned it no problem.  

I did not, however, take advantage of that 10% discount on food.  I only found that Snowshoe discounts IKON pass holders 10% on food earlier this week when I was looking at the IKON website.

We used the 10% off at the Junction last weekend.  As a side note, did anyone think food / bev prices went up?  I had 2 draft porters and my wife had 2 draft IPAs along with the to sammies below.  Drafts were just under 8 bucks each.The friggin bill was over $60.  After the discount and tip, we ended up with a $71 lunch.  We’ll be eating lunch in when we return in January.

10% Snowshoe Eating Discount:  Just be Aware that unless things have changed the discount is only available at Snowshoe owned restaurants, and not all restaurants at the Shoe are owned by Snowshoe!  Check before eating!

No problem using the Ikon pass from the get-go yesterday. 

There is a new wood-fired pizza place in the Appalachian Kitchen building, accross from Western Terriroty. Pretty good and fairly fast.

If I were you, I’d still park at the top of the world. If your pass doesn’t work, they still let you on the lift. You could either do a quick run down Widowmaker, see if your pass works at the bottom. If it doesn’t, take a shuttle to the depot, or just ski down to ballhooter lift, get rejected again, ride it up and head to the Depot at that point. The only problem with that strategy is that the line at the Depot might be very long at that point. Actually, I wonder if the rental shop at the top of the world could scan your tickets to see if they work?

Our IKON passes worked fine skiing up to the lift at Snowshoe in Nov.

Yep, no problems on Saturday. Conditions were nice as well and there was not too much rain.
Shout it from a mountaintop.
