The pass from the newly named Alterra Mountain Company will rival Vail Resorts' popular Epic Pass, which offers skiers access to 15 resorts in three countries.

The dueling multi-resort passes are the latest sign of an industry that is becoming consolidated.

Alterra said in a news release Thursday that the cost and other details of the Ikon Pass will be announced in the coming weeks.

Among the resorts included in the pass are Mammoth and Squaw Valley in California; Aspen Snowmass, Steamboat and Winter Park in Colorado; Deer Valley, Alta and Snowbird in Utah; Jackson Hole in Wyoming, and Mont Tremblant in Quebec.
