    Damn, just the 2 days each at Silver and Losttrail and the pass has paid for itself.
    Lookout would be a great add. Small, but lots of snow and BC. Silver and Lookout are maybe half an hour apart (tops). Silver doesn't have a mountain road, you take a a gondi from town. It's cool.
    No longer stuck.

    So I gather that Castle Mountain Resort is on both the Indy Pass and Power Alliance.

    I looked at the Powder Alliance page which I believe they updated. Castle Mountain Resort is still there. However, I didn't see Stevens Pass, WA (which was to be expected) Arizona Snowbowl (they rejoined late last year) or SilverStar BC (which I'm saddened to see leave since I had a fun time skiing there.) They did recently add Mission Ridge, WA though.

    Wish they had some more places in the eastern Rockies. I have 4 days at two of the midwestern resorts for sure because of race team. If I could get a couple more it would be worth it but...not sure I see it.

    Iím in. Lookout would be a great add and considering their day tickets are often available for $30 even on weekends I donít see them losing money on the dealer

    yeah, your map is making me think a trip to the north west might work... what airport would you choose? Seattle?

    3000mi. 8 ski areas. All covered on the Loveland pass.

    If I don't have the money to go to Europe this year -- could be a helluva a two week adventure.

    yup, I did a lot of that last season. I would strongly suggest buying a day at Discovery basin (disco) and lost trail.

    or combine with a MC pass and do this.

    https://www.routexl.com/f=9t8pXSa1e1...V9J7fBuv_mx5fE
    18 resorts, 2 days each (36 ski days) plus a drive/day off = 2 months on the road.
    MC pass = $500US ~ $700 CND
    Indy pass = $200US ~ $300 CND

    $1000 to buy the pass vs $30/day average = cheap skiing.

    Mid October bump.

    The addition of Terry Peak is tempting. I haven't skied there since I was a kid and could knock off some laps there on the way back to Iowa from points west. Might have to get this. Already have 4 days spoken for at Tyrol and Trollhaugen but with race team discounts these are a push at best @200$ for the 4 days. Need one more day to make it worth it. Really want to support this concept though so maybe I will. Have till 12/1 which is sweet too.

    I plan on getting the indy pass to supplement my Loveland pass, which also includes powder alliance and several additional mtountains. There are several resorts that overlap but at some the indy pass will include weekends on mountains that are blacked out on PAlliance.

    I'm VERY interested in Castle, tying it in with Whitefish, Schwietzer and Whitewater, so many possibilitys to tie in 3,4,5 areas if a 8-10 day trip can be managed. Also since I'm stuck in the Southeast days at Canaan Valley and Massanutten will be good for a couple of less epic weekend trips.

    Castle looks remote, has anyone stayed at their on-mountain hostel/bunkhouse accommodation?

    The hostel is basic but fine. There closest place to buy groceries is beaver mines which is about 25 minutes away, or pincher creek at 45 minutes... stock up on your way in.

    I think they may have private rooms there too.
