For the 2020-21 season, seven independent resorts will be joining 45 Indy resorts returning from last season. Indy Pass holders will receive two free days at each of 52 resorts for $199. Prices have been reduced for all season pass holders of Indy Pass partner resorts and also for kids. A new addition, – the Get America Skiing Promise – provides up to an 80% credit for the following season with no questions asked. Passes will go on sale September 1, 2020 and payment plans will be offered.
