How It Works

What is an Indy Pass?

The Indy Pass is both a physical and cloud based pass that gives you two free lift tickets and a third discounted day at each one of our Partner Resorts. NEW FOR 23/24 – Indy Pass will be issuing a commemorative RFID pass to each pass holder.

How does an Indy Pass work?

Go to any Partner Resort’s ticket window to redeem your free lift ticket by presenting your Indy RFID Card! Resorts will scan or look you up to redeem your pass and issue a day ticket. Only one pass can be redeemed per day per person. Passes do not need to be used sequentially.

How to buy a 23/24 Indy Pass

As of April 11, 2023, 23/24 Indy Passes are no longer on sale. After experiencing record sales, we’ve paused the sale to evaluate capacity for the upcoming season alongside our resort partners. We remain committed to each of our unique ski areas and desire to preserve the independent and uncrowded skiing experience we all know and love.

A limited number of passes may be released this fall. Sign up for our waitlist to be the first to know if passes go back on sale and to learn about new resort additions, 23/24 blackout dates, and more.

Passholders are entitled to a full refund if the resorts they plan to visit are not participating in the program. Refund requests must be submitted by September 1, 2023.
