Indy Pass organizers seem to be on a feeding frenzy. The company just announced that eight new resorts will be joining for the 22/23 season including Nub’s Nob, Michigan, plus alpine and cross-country resorts in the Upper Midwest, New England, and the Pacific Northwest. With these additions, the Indy Pass now offers two free days of skiing, riding, and cross-country skiing at 100 resorts in the US, Canada, and Japan. An additional seven Allied Resorts provide Indy Pass holders up to 50% off lift tickets.
Proponents of cross country skiing have been championing their favorite activity for years but there has never been quite the incentive to lure newcomers like a national program that offers discounts. Indy has managed to combine Alpine and cross country venues in an affordable easy to use package.
Indy Pass now features 23 partner resorts in the Upper Midwest and the addition of BigRock Mountain gives Indy another Maine resort to compliment Saddleback Mountain. It provides Northeastern passholders with 19 independent resorts and 38 days of free skiing and riding.
The Midwest clearly is the big winner in the Alpine category with the addition of Marquette Mountain Resort, Nub’s Nob and Treetops in Michigan and Mt Kato in Minnesota. The fifth addition is BigRock Mountain in Maine.
Loup Loup Ski Bowl in Washington state is considered an allied resort meaning the offer is a 24 – 50 percent discount on lift tickets.
New cross country venues are 49 Degrees North Nordic Center, Washington, Manning Park Resort XC,British Columbia and Treetops (MI).
