BREAKING: Indy Pass Adds 7 New Partner Resorts


The Indy Pass, the best deal in skiing, just keeps on expanding its network of independently-owned, under-the-radar, and absolutely delightful ski areas.

You probably already know that the Indy Pass focuses on mom-and-pop ski areas that preserve genuine ski experiences, but I always think it’s worth a reminder.

I mean, the fact that every skier and snowboarder doesn’t have an Indy Pass is absolutely insane!

Here are the new resorts joining the best deal in skiing for the ’22/’23 season:

New Alpine Resorts – Two free days:

  • Black Mountain of Maine
  • Meadowlark Ski Resort, Wyoming
  • Aomori Spring, Japan

New Cross Country Resort – Two free days

  • Black Mountain of Maine Nordic Center

New Allied Resorts – 25 to 50% off lift tickets

  • Paul Bunyan, Wisconsin
  • King Pine, New Hampshire
  • Cherry Peak, Utah

Passholders now get two days of skiing/riding at 104 ski areas across the US, Canada, and Japan plus discounted tickets at 10 additional resorts starting at just $299 for adults.

Show me a better deal… I’ll wait…

Okay, I’ve waited long enough, and nobody has been able to show me a better deal yet.

^Powder Mountain, UT, the largest ski resort by acreage in North America, is literally a big name on the Indy Pass

The Indy Pass also included a little teaser in their press release announcing the new resorts. They’re hinting that they’re adding a “major West Coast” resort on July 26th. Who could it be?

I may or may not know who it is, and let me just tell ya folks- get excited.

Aomori Spring is the fifth Indy Resort in Northern Japan, where annual snowfall averages 500-700″

Aomori Spring Ski Resort, Tohuku Region, Japan

Nestled at the base of Mt. Iwaki, Aomori Spring ski resort is located deep in the backcountry of Japan’s Tohoku region and is truly off the beaten path. Blessed with abundant snowfall, Aomori Spring has everything from family-friendly slopes to steep tree skiing and a high-quality terrain park with the largest half pipe in Japan. Experienced powder hunters with a touring rig will find the lift-accessed backcountry to be the main feature of this, the fifth Indy mountain in Northern Japan.

Black Mountain of Maine

Black Mountain of Maine is located in the heart of the Western Maine mountains. They are Maine’s 4th tallest ski area, with a 1,380-foot vertical drop. Discover 600 acres of boundary-to-boundary skiing, terrain for all ages and abilities, powder-filled glades, and the friendliest vibe around. As a 501(c)(3) our primary mission is to keep skiing affordable to ensure the sport is accessible to all and always has a place in Maine’s future.

Cherry Peak, Utah

Cherry Peak Resort is far more than just a ski resort. In addition to our great ski runs, 1221 vertical feet, three triple chair lifts, and a magic carpet, you’ll find year-round events in this Northern Utah gem that is a short drive from Indy partners Pomerelle Mountain, Beaver Mountain, and Powder Mountain.

King Pine Ski Area

More fun, more affordable, it all starts at King Pine. First-timers and families will love the friendly, knowledgeable ski school and easy, gentle learning terrain, while more advanced skiers and snowboarders can explore our steeper trails and tree-skiing areas. King Pine also offers lift-serviced snow tubing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice-skating, and après.

Meadowlark Ski Lodge, Wyoming

Dubbed the “Little Jackson Hole,” Meadowlark is nestled on the edge of a mountain lake in the Bighorn Mountains and features varied terrain from a full-mountain blue run to several double-black diamonds, a natural half-pipe, and abundant Rocky Mountain powder. The beautifully crafted wooden lodge includes rentals and retail, a commercial kitchen, a wood-burning fireplace, a wrap-around deck, and a full bar.

Off the beaten path but well worth the trip, you’ll find amazing terrain at Meadowlark, Wyoming.

Paul Bunyan Ski Hill

Paul Bunyan is a newly reopened small family-friendly hill located in Lakewood, Wisconsin. They offer an authentic restored 1967 Hall T-Bar, and four restored rope tows with 150 ft of vertical and very diverse terrain. Paul Bunyan will take you back to a time when small mom-and-pop ski hills reigned supreme.

Black Mountain of Maine Nordic Center

From smooth gliding to big climbs & fast downhills, BMOM nordic trails have something for all ages & skill levels. Challenge yourself or take it slow and easy on terrain features for beginners, intermediates, and experts. “You are here” trail signs make navigating your route of choice easy.
