    Lots of people in CO have both. Ikon Base and Epic Local together are about $1400, depending on when you buy. Ski 20 days, that's $70/day. There's really nothing extravagant about doubling up.

    I think that's the 2nd price for Holiday Valley. Although the price seems really high as compared to an Epic or Ikon pass, Holiday Valley really does have some special characteristics. There's lots...

    Holiday Valley $1,025.00 ($1,081 if you include nights).

    Bristol Mountain $895.00.

    Actually, Bristol is a worse deal as the skiing really s*cks there.

    Demand could certainly be suppressed. On enthusiast boards like this one, the attitude is "as long as the lifts run, I can eat in my car and pee in the woods, no problem". But if you're skiing with...

    Well, if you look at https://www.indyskipass.com , it states "Jay Peak, VT just joined the #INDYREVOLUTION. who's next?". So that would seem to imply that there will an additional resort coming. ...

    Not impossible. However, based on the hype around this, I would still say Jay Peak. Jay Peak is a bigger name and in the same class as Cannon. Smuggs is good, maybe even as good as JP, but it...

    If you look at the https://www.indyskipass.com main page, it actually states "New Resort To Be Announced Monday!" (single, not plural). So just one new resort on Monday.

    I would guess it would be...

    OTOH, sometimes these loosely affiliated resorts switch sides. For example, A-Basin jumped off the Epic Pass and became Ikonic. So there's at least some hope for us Ikon people.

    I believe that is the highest price in the country for a mountain which is not open 7 days a week. Am I wrong?

    They announced season pass pricing: http://www.elkskier.com/season-passes/

    Not a great deal at $795. Also, they will be closed Monday/Tuesday this season.

    I think Vail and Alterra should get behind this. It's a great way to bring new bodies into the sport. Maybe even diverse new bodies.

    I expect multiple tiers in the future. I think there will be a base tier at $199 which will be no-blackouts for the mom-and-pop places and mostly mid-week for the good places. Then another tier at...

    I think that all depends on what the 20/21 numbers show. For 19/20, the average skier only used the Indy pass 4 times, so the average return to the ski area was around $50 per ski day. I imagine...

    Today, sure. But Swain was added to their website a week ago and that's when I posted. Delayed marketing is a little strange, but I guess Mr. Fish is concerned about sending too many emails.

    I went with Blue Mountain in Ontario for my adventure assurance resort. I have no particular plans to actually go there, which makes me a shameless first worlder trying to game the system.

    I am on the email list for Indy pass. I do find it odd that a ski area is added and there is no announcement. Why wouldn't you send an email for each enhancement of the product?

    I have. Swain is a blue square 600 ft hill. Pleasant enough. I get the impression that the resort is not in good shape financially, so maybe this is the last hurrah.

    Valley house quad is perfection. Warm lift, not crowded, can watch skiers on the ride up, and you can access all sorts of interesting terrain.

    The only downside is that the lift does not run 7...
