‘Indy Pass’ is the Megapass for Independent Resorts

With all of the hubbub surrounding the Ikon Pass and Epic Pass, it's easy to forget that there are, in fact, mountains that are on neither the Epic Pass nor Ikon Pass. "But wait," the people ask, "Isn't it illegal to go skiing without an Ikon or Epic Pass?" In many places, yes. But there are a few places, like Mission Ridge, WA, Little Switzerland, WI, and Bolton Valley, VT, where small, independently-owned ski areas persist.

In a slightly ironic turn of events, 44 of these independent resorts have banded together under their own pass: The Indy Pass. Offering 88 days of skiing at 44 resorts across North America, the Indy Pass is a steal at a mere $199. For a full list of participating resorts, see the Indy Pass website here.

Thanks for your information about Epic Pass and Ikon Pass. I thought that it is illegal to go skiing without any of these passes. Hostsailor But thanks for the information that there are places where we can go skiing without these passes like Mission Ridge, Little Switzerland and Bolton Valley.
