Indy Pass expands to cross-country skiing with $69 pass
It looks like Indy Pass is starting to make a concerted effort to expand into the cross-country industry.
The Indy Pass just announced today that all passholders will have two days of track access at six cross-country resorts, and an all-new Indy XC Pass is expected to give passholders access to more. of 30 stations next season.
The Indy XC Pass will sell for $69. Nice…
I really like this Indy Pass move. It’s a perfect way to introduce more people to cross-country skiing and add extra value to what is already a great deal.
Alpine skiers might be encouraged to take a day off the mountain to explore some cross-country trails if this is already included in their package.

Indy Pass expands cross-country offerings
Cross-country resort partners will be offering two passes for all Indy pass holders and an all-new Indy XC pass is on sale now for $69
PORTLAND, Ore. (April 12, 2022) – Indy Pass today announced new partnerships with six cross-country ski resorts that will offer two daily passes each for all Indy Pass holders. Additionally, an all-new Indy XC Pass is on sale today that offers two trail passes at each station for $69 for adults and $29 for children. The Indy Pass developed the program in partnership with the Cross Country Ski Areas Association (CCSAA) and will donate 10% of pass sales to the non-profit group.
“Partnering with Indy Pass and the Cross Country Ski Areas Association is an exciting and logical next step as we see explosive growth in cross-country skiing,” said CCSAA Executive Director Reese Brown. As people start to travel again and the number of downhill skiers visiting cross-country ski resorts increases, the Indy XC Pass offers great value.
“There are millions of cross-country skiers in North America, and a large percentage of them also do downhill skiing,” said Doug Fish, founder of Indy Pass. The Indy Pass is thrilled to welcome this passionate community of independent skiers and resorts to our coalition and we’re proud to help find common (i.e. snowy) ground for anyone who loves to slide. on snow.
Indy Pass and CCSAA expect more than 30 resorts to join before the 22-23 season and have secured commitments from seven founding resorts, including High Point Cross Country Ski Center, NJ; JacksonXC, NH; Mapelap Resort, MN; White Grass Tourism Center, WV; Waterville Valley Resort, NH; Nordic Center in Woodstock, Vermont; and returning partner Sovereign Lake Nordic Club, BC.
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Indy next winter by joining the Indy Cross Country Pass,” said Tim Smith, president/general manager of Waterville Valley Resort. We have partnered with Indy for the past two seasons and have had incredible success. We are therefore delighted to join this new pass and to extend access to our 72 km of groomed Nordic ski trails.
