    This!

    Skiers who depend on day passes are going to have a tough time this coming season. A big reason the Indy pass is so popular.

    If there are, fantastic. But if not, my point stands - there is a tremendous amount of anecdotal evidence that pass sales (in general) are through the roof, which reflects an overwhelming desire to get outdoors. I hope that the lack of facilities - and irrational fear of covid - will help keep the crowds at bay, but all in all Im bracing myself for stupidly long line lift lines, and, consequently, less runs and less skiing.
    Killington does not require reservation's to ski, only to park.

    From what I have seen, Indy Pass holders are treated more like day pass purchasers than season pass holders. For example, at Magic, no reservations are required for their own Season Pass holders, but (quoting from their site)

    Indy Pass Holders are required to make a free reservation online on our website ticket page in advance as inventory will be limited, similar to ticket buyers. Once reserved, Indy Pass Holders can pick up their tickets at the outside season pass holder ticket window near lodge entrance on slope-side. Only arrive at Magic if you have a confirmed reservation online.

    Magic has stated they my use a reservation system but likely you can count the number of days on one hand, maybe a couple of fingers from the other hand.
