June marks the beginning of summer, so it’s only fitting that it has been designated as Great Outdoors Month®. This is the time of year for people to #escapetheindoors, reconnect with nature, and encourage others to get outside.

Great Outdoors Month, The Background

The event began as Great Outdoors Week in the late 1990s. Since then, it has grown into a month-long celebration of the outdoors. Today, Great Outdoors Month features thousands of events all over the United States, including National Get Outdoors Day and National Fishing and Boating Week.

But you don’t have to participate in one of these official events to celebrate Great Outdoors Month. Finding time every day to get outside to experience nature’s marvels is what this month is all about. The Ikon Pass can help you explore nature this June – and all summer – with some exclusive perks for pass holders.

Celebrate With Your Ikon Pass

Ikon Pass holders can soak in the wondrous mountain views from the comfort of a chair lift or gondola, with complimentary rides at select Ikon Pass destinations. Or they can take to the tree-lined trails on a mountain bike with discounted rates on Bike Park passes at Mammoth Mountain, Big Bear Mountain Resort, and more. All visitors, including non-pass holders, can enjoy several other summer resort activities that get them out in the fresh air, connecting them with the mountains, their families, and the communities.
