Last week, the Indy Pass released an updated list of ski resorts that are confirmed partners for the 2023-24 season. So far, 102 of the 105 partners have confirmed that they will be returning for the 2023-24 season.

The only holdouts are Snow Valley, Mt. Ashland, and Mt. Hood Meadows. Snow Valley was acquired by the Alterra Mountain Company this year, so they’re heading to the Ikon Pass. Mt. Ashland confirmed to the Storm Skiing Journal that they’ll be returning to the Indy Pass this season. Mt. Hood Meadows remains unconfirmed, but they’re expected to return.

The Indy Pass is expected to bring on at least a dozen more partners for next season. With the addition of a physical pass and the elimination of service fees, this is the time to buy an Indy Pass.

The official press release from the Indy Pass is below.

Grand County, CO. (March 29, 2023) – The Indy Pass released today an updated list of resorts that have committed for the 23/24 season. As of this date, 102 out of 105 Indy Alpine resorts participating in 22/23 will return for next season. Snow Valley, Mt. Hood Meadows, and Mt. Ashland are the three uncommitted resorts. Alterra acquired Snow Valley, Mt. Hood Meadows, and Mt. Ashland are expected to renew.

Allied and Cross Country resort lists will be published after the Indy season ends on April 30. Indy Pass Founder Doug Fish said, “97 percent of Indy Partner Resorts returning sends a clear message that the Indy Revolution is alive and well. In fact, more than a dozen new resorts are already in the cue to join the coalition.”

Continued Growth Expected – Indy Passholders can expect significant growth in partner options for the 23/24 season in both the domestic and international markets.  Fish continued, “Our efforts will now shift from confirming renewals to expansion opportunities in markets where the Indy Pass has room for more partners.”

Waitlist Pass Sales Will End March 30th – 23/24 passes are only on sale for people who signed up for the waitlist before March 23rd. The Adult Base Pass is $299, and the Adult Indy+ Pass is $399 for zero blackout days (see complete waitlist pass pricing below). Sales to General Public Begin on April 1st.

New Refund Policy
Any passholder who purchases during our early-bird pricing period will be eligible for the Indy Pass Partner Participation Promise. Pass holders 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.

Payment Plan – Adult Pass As Low As $37 per Month
Pass buyers can pay for their passes in up to eight installments with no interest, meaning an adult base pass would cost less than $37 per month. Buyers should note that the Indy pass payment plan is underwritten and delivered by Indy Pass, meaning there are no outside approvals, credit checks, and bankers like some mega passes.

No More Service Charge – Commemorative RFID Passes to be Issued
The 3% service fee typically charged on all Indy Passes at checkout will be eliminated for the 23/24 season. In exchange, all pass holders will be mailed a custom-designed 23/24 commemorative, RFID-enabled Indy Pass with a photo for a $10 fee. The physical Indy Pass will include benefits such as direct-to-lift access at select Indy resorts, expedited lift ticket pick-up at all Indy resorts, and discounts on products and services from Indy Pass partners.
