The new Indy Pass has added more areas to its portfolio at time when high profile products such as Epic and Ikon are suspending sales for the season.
Founded by Doug Fish, the pass was launched this year with an eye on generating revenue for independent areas not included in popular Vail, Alterra, or Peak Resorts products. Areas reportedly receive funds each time a ticket is redeemed and reportedly have to contribute toward pass marketing efforts.
The pass is valid for 2 tickets per passholder to each of the 46 partner ski areas across North America (i.e. up to 92 days of skiing). Initially $199, the pass is currently on sale for $219.
Indy passholders do not receive a physical pass. Instead, they upload a photo at the time of purchase, which is then used for verification at partner resorts when skiers visit the ticket window/service desk to redeem one of their two days. Passholders receive a confirmation e-mail each time they redeem a ticket.
Initial New England adopters of the pass included Pats Peak, Berkshire East, and Catamount. Eight New England ski areas are now part of the pass:
