Sing it loudly, once more with feeling, Indy Pass has done it again. Just a few short days ago they added four more resorts, swelling their portfolio to a whopping 72 across the United States and Canada. The newcomers are:
- New York’s Titus Mountain, just a few miles from the Canadian border and the northernmost ski area in New York’s Adirondacks;
- Pennsylvania’s Montage Mountain, just two hours from Philly and NYC;
- Snow Valley, Indy Pass’ first sojourn into Southern California; and
- Marmot Basin in Alberta.
Indy Pass provides up to 144 days of skiing and riding for just $279, $119 for kids, and $379 unrestricted. Three of the four new resorts will have zero blackout days for regular Indy Pass holders.
Each of the four pick-ups cements Indy Pass’ presence in the region. With the pass designed for travelers willing to bunker down between two or three resorts and hit them all at once, the addition of Montage pairs with Indy Pass’ Shawnee Resort, providing NYC, Jersey, and Philly skiers two options. Titus and Snow Valley represent entrees into lucrative skier-rich markets: Quebec and L.A. respectively.
“Density is an important piece of the story for any multipass. Skiers need to believe some minimal number of ski days is a feasible, either from their home base or on a trip. Whether they actually achieve that number is beside the point – it’s enough that the possibility exists,” observed skiing writer Stuart Winchester of StormSkiing.com, and he’s dead solid perfect on that analysis. Doug Fish, Indy Pass founder and a lifer of a skier has been criss-crossing the country indefagitably, but efficiently and strategically, and the results speak for themselves. Indy Pass puts the bigger passes to shame when it comes to value, and its dominance in the northeast is especially solid. It’s the pass of choice for nomads, families, and skitouristas.
