    Maybe check spam. I got one.

    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.

    One thing to be aware of, the blackout days are pretty extreme: https://www.indyskipass.com/faq/. There's only 4 resorts with blackouts, none in the east. But it's not just Xmas, MLK and Presidents that are blacked out. It also includes the 4th and 5th weekends in January and the first weekend in February.

    From the storm skier podcast with the gm of mad river Glenn, he sounded like he would have joined but COVID 19 uncertainty kept him out this year, from the Sam ski article, Indy pass sales percentage wise are thru the roof.

    My guess next year lots of places like mad river Glenn, plattekill are on board

    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 this would be acceptable to MRG and Platty. OTOH, if the usage jumps up to 10 ski days per passholder in 20/21, then the yield would be $20 per day. I doubt that MRG/Plat would jump in for that. Fish put a very positive spin on things, but I imagine that MRG/Plat are interested in more data on usage.

    No Platy owner told me
    They get very little revenue from that pass

    It may get me to go though where I wouldn’t even think of driving over there normally.

    Exactly, question is does revenue from new visitors eclipse lost revenue from people who would have gone anyway but are now using cheaper Indy ticket. Also need to take into account ancillary revenue (food, drink, souvenirs, etc) brought in by the new visitors.
