Families are buying ski passes in record numbers. We're all eager to get the best deals possible to spend more days on snow. Earlier this year, 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 from the Indy Pass family.

Indy Pass

Indy is the perfect pass for families that want to try something new. You'll get a sampling of dozens of mountains. Each one for two days (perfect for a weekend getaway). 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 are always announcing a new partnership on social media. 

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.
