Indy and Mountain Collective Passes Offer Alternative to Epic/Ikon
Epic and Ikon mega season passes may get a lot of attention, as they provide the ability to ski at dozens of popular ski resorts across North America, but they’re not the only passes in town. Two other passes worthy of consideration include the Mountain Collective pass and the Indy Pass. In particular, these passes are good for skiers and snowboarders who wish to sample a wide variety of ski areas.
The Indy Pass was launched last winter as a way for independent ski areas to join forces and compete with mega corporations such as Vail Resorts and Ikon. It returns for the 2020-2021 winter season, expanding to include a total of 55 ski areas across the West, Midwest, and East. 11 new resorts have been added this winter, including West Virginia’s Winterplace Resort. Returning this winter are Mid-Atlantic resorts Bryce, Canaan Valley, Blue Knob, and Shawnee Mountain.
