Colorado’s First Mountain Joins ‘Indy Pass’ at Rival Ikon, Epic

The Indy Pass offers skiers and snowboarders in North America and Japan a local alternative to the Ikon and Epic circuits. This year, he added his first Colorado resort to his ever-growing list of family mountains.

Sunlight Mountain Resort in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, has just become the new stage of the Indy Pass circuit. It joins unaffiliated ski areas across the United States, as well as a handful in Canada and Japan, on the list.

The pass now includes 82 independent ski resorts off the beaten track. Skiers can register for two visits per year to the 82 sites for $329 (adult price).

Looking at locations and considering usefulness, the pass seems ideal for anyone interested in visiting the United States for incoming ski in discreet places – on a shoestring budget.

While Epic and Ikon tend to leave a big empty spot in the middle of the map, Indy Pass fills it with multiple stops from Midwest Michigan to Iowa.
