“Blacktail Mountain Joins the Indy Pass
By adding a third Montana resort to its strong line-up in the Northern Rockies Indy Pass expands to 81 partner mountains
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 in North America to 77 and 81 worldwide. Rising above the idyllic Flathead Lake in Lakeside, Montana, Blacktail Mountain offers an impressive 1000 acres,1440 vertical feet, and 250 inches of feather-light Salish Mountain powder. The ski area was founded in 1998 by long-time ski resort veteran, Steve Spencer and is now managed by his daughter, Jessi Wood. Blacktail was recently purchased by Indy Pass resort Mission Ridge who plans to keep the existing management team in place. “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 Wood. The Flathead Valley is famous as the gateway to Glacier National Park and is home to many mountain communities with numerous lodging options. Kalispell is the regional commerce center just 45 minutes from Blacktail. Other Montana resorts on the Indy Pass include Lost Trail Powder Mountain and Red Lodge. Blacktail Mountain will be restricted to only Indy+ Pass holders over Christmas, MLK, and Presidents Weekend holidays.”
