13 Indy Pass Destinations with over 2,000' of Vertical Drop

Indy Pass partner resorts are bigger than you think. The pass debuted in 2019 with a collection of 36 small, independent, local hills. Just two seasons later, the Indy Pass has expanded to include 81 destinations, while adding some much larger — but fiercely independent — resorts to its portfolio. From the Northeast to Utah, Washington and into British Columbia, serious skiers and riders, this pass should be on your radar screen.
