Families are buying ski passes in record numbers. We're all eager to get safely get outdoors this winter. If we follow the rules and mask up, we can enjoy a beautiful winter on the slopes. Earlier this fall, I talked about the passes from the big guys (Epic Pass and Ikon pass, read this article) and now I want to share two more ski season passes you need to consider.
I love this pass and the way it brings small mountains (like Mohawk Mountain in CT and Magic Mountain in Vermont) and big mountains together. They've been working on an awesome coalition of mountains and they just added Jay Peak in Vermont.
Here's how it works: Once you’ve received a confirmation email that your Indy Pass is registered, you can go to any participating resort ticket window to get a free lift ticket. Just present your drivers license or other photo ID to the ticket agent each time you wish to redeem and they will issue you a day ticket.
Indy Pass Has You Covered
Looking for a pass that's COVID proof? Indy Pass has you covered. They call it the "Get America Skiing" assurance plan. You will receive an automatic credit towards a 2021-22 pass if you use your Indy Pass less than four days – no questions asked.
Want a cash payout if the season is called off? Pay just $20 and get your money back if you're not able to use your Indy Pass and you'll get 100% of your paid purchase price. Read more about the Indy Pass plan here.

This pass often sells out, it gives skiers and riders access to premium mountains like Taos and Aspen without having to shell out for a pricey full season pass.
