Most skiers who buy the Ikon Pass for the 2020–21 season won't need advance reservations to hit the slopes, according to Alterra Mountain Company, which operates the pass.

Anybody with an Ikon Pass, however, will, in most cases, still be able to stroll up to any resort covered by the pass and get on a lift without having booked a slot ahead of time—which, after all, is one of the reasons why people buy multi-resort passes in the first place.
