SAM Magazine—Greenwood, Maine, Dec. 31, 2019—Mt. Abram in Greenwood, Maine, has joined the Indy Pass for the 2019-20 season. The resort is the first Indy Pass member in the state, and will offer two unrestricted free days of access. This raises the number of participating Indy Pass areas to 47. The pass price rises from $219 to $239 on Jan. 1.
"We are very excited to join a great group of ski areas on the Indy Pass," said GM Bob Harkins. "By lowering cost barriers, we are helping people get back to the core traditions of the sport and getting them on the snow more often."
"The New England skiing and riding community has really embraced the Indy Pass and we're stoked to be a part of it," said Kevin Rosenberg, Mt. Abram marketing director. "We think pass holders will enjoy our little piece of winter magic in the mountains of Maine."

Like many Indy Pass resorts, Mt. Abram is family owned. It has 1,150 feet of vertical drop, with four lifts serving 36 trails. It also offers glade and tree skiing. Recent infrastructure improvements include a new variable drive on the Westside chairlift, allowing for faster and easier access to the area's well-regarded beginner and learning terrain. The area will mark 60 years of operation in 2020.
The two days offered for each area on the Indy Pass are unrestricted at 40 of the 47 resorts. Five have holiday blackouts, and two allow weekday-only access. See indyskipass.com for details.
