Indy Pass Adds 2 Popular California Resorts | Now offers 106 resorts worldwide

Another powder day in the San Gabriel Mountains at SoCal’s closest resort, Mountain High.

Condominium resorts bring Indy Pass to five mountains in the Golden State and 16 on the West Coast

The Indy Pass today announced that two of California’s most popular independent resorts have joined the coalition for the 22/23 season. Mountain High in SoCal’s San Gabriel Mountains is now paired with Snow Valley, while the Bay Area’s Dodge Ridge joins Indy partner China Peak in the Central Sierras. Indy Pass holders from San Francisco to Los Angeles have reason to rejoice as none of the stations will have blackout restrictions for Base Pass holders.

“This off-season we have worked very hard to increase our number of Western partnerships, and Mountain High and Dodge Ridge are two exceptional mountains joining our family of resorts. The Indy Pass now has more US West Coast resorts than ALL other passes combined.

– Doug Fish, Founder of Indy Pass
