It’s been a sizzling off-season for Indy Pass as they have swelled to 185 resorts across three continents – the largest non-corporate pass on the planet. Now they have announced two new exciting proijects.
Firs, in conjunction with Unofficial Networks, they have combined efforts to provide financial assistance to Hickory Ski Center in Warrensburg, New York, so the ski area may run its lifts for the first time in eight years. From the press release:
“The ski center will join the Indy Pass for the 2023/24 season, and season passes go on sale today at skihickory.com. Hickory pass holders will be eligible to purchase Indy AddOn Passes at a 30% discount. The Indy Pass will close the 2023/2024 waitlist on Sunday, December 10th. Hickory Ski Center was founded in 1946 by veterans of the 10th Mountain Division and has served the surrounding community and offered uphill traffic only since 2016. With rising costs, specifically insurance, the ski area faced an uncertain future until their plight caught the attention of Tim Konrad, publisher of Unofficial Networks. “My family spends much of the winter in the Adirondacks, and I have been ski touring at Hickory since 2015. Over the years, I’ve been keeping close tabs on their struggle to reopen lifts, and when I learned how far they had come and how close they were to achieving their goal, I knew we had to do something. So I called Erik at Indy Pass to discuss how we could offer our support,” said Konrad. “After Tim called, we did a quick assessment and decided that Entabeni would step in on this one. It is important to recognize the collaboration between Entabeni, Indy Pass, and Unofficial Networks. The more organizations we can get involved to stabilize these small, independent areas, the better our chances of scaling this movement,” said Erik Mogensen, CEO of Entabeni and Indy Pass.”
Next, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has agreed to extend their golden ticket 50% discount on daily lift tickets to all Indy Passholders. (on 55 specific days throughout the season) Just show your Indy Pass at the ticket window. “Please be sure to say thank you to one of the premier ski destinations in the world for staying independent and welcoming Indy,” quipped Indy CEO Erik Morgansen. The new passholder perk brings Jaz to the forefront of a growing Western slate of Rocky Mountain and Grad Teton destinations.
The wait list for indy Passes closed on December 10.
