    Just looked it up. You could put together a proper new mexico/Colorado ski safari with this and have a blast. Purgatory, sunlight, pajarito (this place is great!) and cooper. I got these places and a ton more on my Powderhorn pass for 279...this place is my goto destination when the storms hit and I get tired of the crowds and need a couple chill tree days.

    As passionate skiers we all need to support the local mountains to keep the lifts spinning.

    You make a valid point. I'm not sure though, how many non locals are gonna research such things enough to buy a Mcintyre or other cheap season pass. The addition of the Mountain Capital Partners resorts really fleshes out the Freedom Pass. Last year their only western resorts were Cooper and EagleCrest. Purgatory is a legit destination, while the others are heaps of fun for a couple days each.

    I opted for a Loveland Pass this season to get Powder Alliance and numerous other partners (including Purgatory and affiliates) knowing that it didn't have any eastern partners. It's been the best $400ish I've ever spent (after having a MAX pass in 17-18 ) but it did mean my eastern days this year have all been liftopia tickets or other specials. May have to add a Mcintyre pass next year to balance it out a bit.

    Regardless, I wish the indy pass well and should it end up as a MAX pass type product with the ORDA resorts, I might throw one in the basket and give a couple as gifts.

    Just checked out indyskipass.com. Not bad, there are now 24 ski areas. My analysis:

    1. If you live in Spokane, this pass is awesome with access to White Pass, Mission Ridge, 49° North, Hoodoo, Silver Mtn and Brundage. Also pretty decent if you live in Seattle or Portland.

    2. Also a very good pass if you live in Milwaukee with 4 Wisconsin ski areas, along with 2 in Michigan UP and one in Minnesota.

    3. It's a decent pass for the NE with Bolton, Berkshire East and Catamount. Not great, but you should be able to pay off the pass.

    They should sell at least a few of these. I do hope additional areas get added.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but as someone who is now 60+, couldn't I buy a Yawgoo (don't laugh) "Senior Pass" for $99 for the upcoming season and then add on the $199 Freedom Pass? That would get you access to the FP areas for a total of $298?

    This thread is about the Indy Pass, which is completely standalone. The Freedom Pass is a free add-on to season passes. I dunno, but I believe that your $99 senior pass at Yawgoo gives you the Freedom Pass at no charge.

    Indy Pass is now up to 28 areas, including Magic. Looking better every week.

    I had the same link but it didn’t show it. Must have been cached.

    Maybe by 9/1 a few more New England ones will be added to make it worth it. Although I could hit 3 of them - pats, Bolton and magic. It would only be 33.33 a visit.
