Check out the list of locations for the new Indy Pass, a growing collection of independently owned ski areas. Started out in the west but now includes the midwest, New England, and even the southeast. Much to my surprise, my home mountain Massanutten has joined up as well as Cataloochee (25 acres, closest ski area to Atlanta) in NC.
The price is $199 for 2019-20, available after Sept. 1, 2019. Here’s what you get:
* Two free days at each partner resort in the US and Canada
* Minimum of one additional discounted lift ticket
* Discounted kids tickets (12 and under) when redeeming an adult ticket
* Special offers from participating resorts for lodging, rentals, lessons and more
The places in New England so far are Bolton in VT, and Berkshire East and Catamount (same ownership) in western MA. Places out west that caught my eye include Red Lodge and Lost Trail in MT, and Brundage and Silver Mountain in ID.
In case anyone is interested in the Indy Pass, it's already on sale. Price goes up $20 on Dec. 1. The website has been beefed up with FAQ and other useful sections, in addition to the Buy option.
This looks good too.....thinks its under $200 for the full season (not the $80 posted now which is spring 19 only)
Yeah. It's like $150 in the fall.
If I don't take a western trip next year (saving money for a bathroom redo), my out-of-the-box idea is to buy 4 of these for my wife and I, getting us 2 ski days at each place listed for around $600 total between us.
Then I'd fill in with Platty days. And maybe the Killington Spring Pass if I feel like I didn't get enough skiing in.
I bought 4 of them (2 for each of us). Then I'll probably go to the Warren Miller movie for a Sugarbush pass & another (Gore?) pass. That +PSIA +Plattekill +Backcountry should be good for me. If I need to (and it's a great snow year), I might buy the Killington Spring Pass.
Looking forward to days at Magic, MRG, Gore, WF, Titus, & Smugg's.
