Indy Pass Adds Two More Resorts in Colorado!

The Indy Pass just made a big announcement – Granby Ranch and Echo Mountain (both in Colorado) join the pass for the ‘Season 22-23!

Pass holders get two days of skiing or horseback riding at any Indy’s 103 downhill partners and in general 13 cross-country skiing Partner. In addition, pass holders receive discounted day tickets for the lifts 14 allies resorts.

The best deal in skiing, that’s just $329 it’s getting better and better at the moment.

I personally stoked that skiers in the Denver area will be able to use their Indy Pass so close to home.

Echo is a small ski resort compared to its Summit County neighbors, but it’s the perfect place for after-work night skiing or having fun time in the snow with the kids.

Granby Ranch is only about 2 hours from downtown Denver (depending on traffic, of course).

It’s exciting that Front Range residents have an excuse to venture off the beaten path to explore a ski resort that’s as close, if not closer, than some of the ‘Main’ Ski areas in the state.

Buying an Indy Pass just makes sense for most skiers across the country. I mean, let’s face it, the majority of us don’t have the luxury of skiing on weekdays and we feel lucky to have 30 days on the slopes.

Buying an Indy Pass gives us a flexible way to explore new places and most importantly, it’s affordable!

Here’s to Granby and Echo joining the best damn offer in all of skiing. I hope more of their independent ski resorts in Colorado follow suit!

Indy Pass adds two more resorts in Colorado

Granby Ranch and Echo Mountain are the third and fourth Colorado resorts to join the coalition

PORTLAND, Ore. (November 15, 2022) – Indy Pass has added Colorado’s Granby Ranch and Echo Mountain resorts to its growing list for the 22/23 season. They join Colorado’s Sunlight Mountain and Bluebird Backcountry, both of which have been added in recent months. Granby Ranch will eclipse the Christmas holidays, and all other Colorado Indy resorts offer unlimited access to Indy Base Pass holders.

“Colorado is the epicenter of skiing in North America, and we’re proud to now have four partner resorts there,” said Doug Fish, founder of Indy Pass. “There are so many great passport options for Coloradans that we don’t expect passport sales to be huge in the state. However, our pass holders from across the country will be thrilled to have these great additions to their Rocky Mountain vacations.”

Echo Mountain is the closest resort town to Denver and is a great place to warm up before heading deeper into the Rocky Mountains.

Echo Mountain is the closest ski, snowboard and tubing area to Denver, Colorado. A small local ski resort just 50 minutes from downtown and located at an elevation of 2 miles, Echo has something for everyone and gets you more time in the snow while offering an experience unlike neighboring mega- Resorts totally different.

“We are thrilled to be part of this very special collection of independent resorts and look forward to Indy Pass holders making Echo Mountain the first stop on their Colorado tour,” said GM Fred Klaas.
