Written by Natalie Akers “Steeper, Deeper, Cheaper.” The bumper sticker outside of Eugene, Oregon’s Whiteaker International Hostel caught my attention. It was in good company next to a “Ski the East” patch on a Volvo Wagon older than its driver. My first encounter with Hoodoo Ski Area. It’s raining and March in Oregon’s misty Willamette… Read more »
Written by Natalie Akers Imagine a mountain that guarantees a powder day. Every Thursday. That’s not a stretch for locals at Lost Trail Ski Area, even in the 20-21 season when almost nothing is predictable. I’d been hearing about their legendary tradition since I crossed the South Dakota border. Everyone from industry pros at Red… Read more »
Written by Natalie Akers Over 37” of snow graced mystical Red Lodge Mountain between October 17 and November 17, 2020. Last year, October saw almost 80”. That’s in line with the unique storm cycles that locals are hardened to at Montana’s eastern-most ski area.

We believe that all Indy resorts will operate this winter, but there may be some unforeseen restrictions based on shifting COVID-19 policies. That’s why we’ve created the most comprehensive and easy to understand, multi-mountain pass assurance program there is.
The Indy Pass was created to be a great value for skiers and boarders who want to get the most out of their winter at authentic, independent resorts and in 2020, we’ve ratcheted up the value by adding 11 new resorts. That takes our resort count to 55 for anyone who’s counting.
Many skiers and riders are understandably concerned about the upcoming winter season. This winter may look a bit different. However, getting outside in a safe and responsible manner is vital to our physical and mental health. Indy pass wants to ensure that in this tough time, everyone possible has the chance to get out and… Read more »

Written by Dara Barney | Edited by Natalie Mussotto When some hear about Idaho, they might confuse it for Iowa, or ask about its potatoes.

Written by Natalie Akers | Edited by Natalie Mussotto I’ve dreamed of Utah skiing without lift lines. Blue sky, cold-smoke powder, skiing between the aspens. I catch a wide rolling groomer with some pitch, flying to the base where I head into a historic A-frame lodge for lunch. Street tacos. I’ve dreamed of Beaver Mtn;… Read more »
Skiing Terry Peak begins with skiing, not a lift ride. I redeemed my Indy Pass at Stewart Lodge (elevation 6,500’) and descended a perfectly groomed, wide blue to the Surprise Express. I was already whooping at the carving conditions. Surprise gives skiers access to the summit, which at 7,100 feet, towering over every East Coast resort and many mountains in the Cascade range. I stopped in the 3-degree weather to take a panoramic of the Black Hills poking up above the cloud line.
If you’ve skied an East Coast resort in the last 60 years, you owe a lot to Walt Schoenknecht. I know I do. The ski hall-of-famer is the father of Mt. Snow, Brodie, and Mohawk Mountain. He invented snowmaking! But perhaps most triumphantly, he could be considered the creative force behind today’s most popular idea of a ski vacation: one that invites new skiers to fall in love with the sport and captivates our imagination to return winter after winter.

Adventure in its purest form. Instead of hitting the mega-resorts on your next ski road trip, why not save a few bucks and pick up an… Read more »

Nor is it Utah, Vermont, Montana, New Hampshire, Idaho, California, or any of the other states I rattled off in conversational trivia with Drew Broderick, VP of Sales and Marketing at Greek Peak Mountain Resort and Toggenburg. Try New York. Home to 51 ski resorts, New York state hosts a full 20 ski operations over Colorado.

This big mountain terrain with a small-mountain village atmosphere was stumbled upon in the 1940s. Eager local downhillers went looking for new terrain to ski.
