SAM Magazine—Portland, Ore., April 27, 2022—Indy has rebranded its primary pass product as the Indy Base Pass. The Indy Base Pass—not to be confused with the similar-sounding Ikon Base Pass—will continue to provide two days at Indy’s roster of independent partner resorts, subject to newly reduced blackout dates.IndyPass The Indy+ Pass will remain unrestricted at all resorts.

For the 2022-23 season, Indy has reduced blackout dates at partner resorts by 7 percent compared to last season, with 16 resorts dropping all blackout dates, six partners reducing blackouts, and five adding blackouts for the coming season. In total, 63 of Indy’s 92 resort partners will offer unrestricted access to Indy Base Pass holders. 

Ski Marmot Basin in Alberta is not renewing with Indy this year, but the pass product will add five new resorts to its list of partners for the 2022-2023 season: three unrestricted downhill resorts and two cross-country areas, which include Ski Bluewood, Wash., Kelly Canyon, Idaho, Ski Sawmill, Pa., Rikert Nordic Center, Vt., and Enchanted Forest XC, N.M.

“We are thrilled to welcome five new resorts from some of our strongest regions,” said Indy Pass founder Doug Fish. “By adding density in the Pacific Northwest, Pennsylvania, and Vermont, Indy Pass holders have even more uncrowded and affordable skiing and riding options.”

Early bird pricing for the Indy Pass suite ends May 17, after which date prices will increase by $20 to $50 depending on the volume of total early-bird sales.
