SAM Magazine—Portland, Ore., December 14, 2021—The Indy Pass has added Montana ski area Blacktail Mountain to its growing list of resorts in the Northern Rockies, bringing its total number of partners to 77 in North America, 81 worldwide.
“We are very excited to join the Indy Pass coalition and look forward to welcoming Indy Pass holders from all over the country to Flathead Valley where they can experience our abundant snow, unique terrain, and down-home Montana hospitality," said resort leader Jessi Wood.
Blacktail joins fellow Montana ski areas Lost Trail Powder Mountain and Red Lodge on the pass. The relatively young ski area was recently acquired by the owners of Mission Ridge, Wash. Mission Ridge was one of the first ski areas to partner with Indy Pass back when the product launched in 2019.
Blacktail will be restricted to Indy+ Pass holders only over the Christmas, MLK, and Presidents Weekend holidays.
Known for its Salish Mountain powder, Blacktail has 1000 acres of terrain, 1440 vertical feet, and an average snowfall of 250 inches. Founded in 1998, it sits above Flathead Lake, which serves as a gateway to Glacier National Park and offers numerous lodging options.
