Waterville Valley Resort Joins Indy Pass


Waterville Valley, NH, Feb. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --


Two of New England’s most popular and storied resorts join the fastest-growing multi-mountain pass in snow sports.

PORTLAND, Ore. (Feb. 23, 2021) -- Waterville Valley Resort in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire and Saddleback Mountain in Rangeley, Maine will join the Indy Pass through the end of the current 2020-21 season for the 2021-22 season. Both resorts will provide two days of skiing and riding to all Indy Pass holders during both seasons and there are no blackout dates for the remainder of the current season. Waterville Valley visits will be no charge; and for the current season, Saddleback will be $10 per visit.

"We believe the Indy Pass is helping keep the spirit of independent resorts alive while allowing them to be competitive against the conglomerate mega passes," said Tim Smith, President/General Manager of Waterville Valley Resort.  "We're excited to be joining this collective of independent resorts across the country and can't wait to welcome passionate skiers and riders to Waterville Valley."

“Saddleback is exceptionally pleased to announce that we will be joining the Indy Pass for the '21/'22 season and will offer current season Indy Pass holders two days for just $10 each through the end of our season. The Indy Pass is a multi-resort season pass which now features sixty-three independent ski resorts throughout the country, who are committed to providing the best value and experience in skiing & riding, through a pass which offers tremendous diversity and opportunity for passholders. We believe that the guests who have the opportunity to visit Saddleback through the Indy Pass, will not only contribute to our authentic culture, but also spread the word about what a great experience this mountain truly offers,” said Doc Tulin, Saddleback Mountain Director of Marketing.

Saddleback Mountain will also be a part of the film “In Pursuit of Soul” produced by action-sports media leader Teton Gravity Research. “TGR is a powerhouse with the passion and experience to uncover the unique energy and culture of resorts like Saddleback,” said Doug Fish, Indy Pass founder. Filming will take place in February and March with a release date in the Fall of 2021. “To have a company like TGR coming to highlight the authentic, vibrant character of our resort is a really exciting moment for the resort and  a community like Rangeley, which is so welcoming and up for anything,” said Tulin.


Beginning March 1 the Indy Spring Pass will be available for just $149 ages 13+ and $69 for kids. It will provide two free days of skiing at all 63 resorts including Waterville Valley and Saddleback with various weekend blackouts at Brundage Mountain, Bolton Valley, Cannon Mountain, Magic Mountain, Mission Ridge and Silver Mountain.
