Alterra Mountain Company & Affirm Expand Exclusive Partnership To Bring Payment Flexibility To More Skiers & Riders

Affirmthe payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth, today announced an expanded partnership with Alterra Mountain Company, a family of iconic year-round mountain destinations, including the worlds largest heli-skiing operation, and the owner of Ikon Pass. Eligible travelers will be able to pay over time with Affirm when purchasing an Ikon Pass in the U.S. and for the first time, also in Canada, plus local mountain passes, lodging, and lessons when traveling to any of Alterras destinations across North America.

Affirms mission is to deliver honest financial products that improve lives. By building a new kind of payment network – one based on trust, transparency and putting people first – we empower millions of consumers to spend and save responsibly and give thousands of businesses the tools to fuel growth. Unlike most credit cards and other pay-over-time options, we show consumers exactly what they will pay up front, never increase that amount, and never charge any late or hidden fees. 

By selecting Affirm at checkout, approved consumers can split purchases into monthly payments, for as low as 0% APR, making Affirm available across a wider variety of booking options following the success of the partnership to date. Consumers are shown the total cost of their purchase and will never pay more than they agree to upfront. Affirm never charges customers any late or hidden fees.

We are continually looking at ways to enhance the purchase experience for our pass holders and destination guests, and Affirm offers flexibility and choice when looking to plan their winter adventures,” said Matt Bowers, Senior Vice President, Alterra Mountain Company. 

We are proud to deliver increased payment flexibility for Alterra Mountain Company consumers, including those purchasing an Ikon Pass or those seeking lodging, lessons, and more across Alterras iconic destinations,” said Pat Suh, SVP of Revenue at Affirm. This expanded partnership positions us to drive even more value as we unlock a wider range of transactions and make Affirm available to even more skiers and riders across the U.S. and Canada.” 

Alterra Mountain Company is one of 292,000 Affirm retail partners, including Amazon, American Airlines, Casper, Newegg, SeatGeek, Royal Caribbean, Priceline, and more. Offering Affirm at checkout can drive overall sales, increase average order value, and increase customer repurchase rates.
