BREAKING: Mt. Hood Meadows Joins The Indy Pass


I teased it yesterday, and I’m happy to finally be able to share the news that The Indy Pass is adding Mt. Hood Meadows (OR) for the Winter ’22-’23 season.

Indy Passholders will now get two days of access to 92 downhill ski areas across the United States, Canada, and Japan. Plus access to 14 cross country resorts, and discounted tickets at 10 allied resorts.

The best deal in skiing just keeps getting better.

Indy has already landed major resorts with Powder Mountain, UT, Jay Peak, VT, and Cannon Mountain, NH, but landing Mt. Hood Meadows is an absolutely huge addition for the relatively-new Indy Pass.

Buying an Indy Pass for just $299 is starting to make more and more sense no matter where you live in the country.

It’s simply the best deal in skiing. No questions about it!

The premier Oregon resort becomes Indy’s largest by skier volume

PORTLAND, Ore. (July 26, 2022) – The Indy Pass is proud to announce that Mt. Hood Meadows, Oregon is joining its coalition of independent resorts for the 22/23 season. Mt. Hood Meadows is one of the largest independently owned and operated resorts in the US and features 2,150 acres, 11 lifts, 85 named runs, and 430″ of annual snowfall. It welcomes more skier visits than any other Indy resort partner.

“We are very excited to welcome our home mountain, Mt. Hood Meadows, to the Indy family of resorts, said Indy Pass president Doug Fish. We know first-hand that Meadows is one of the finest resorts in North America, and their presence on the pass will elevate and support all Indy resorts.”

Meadows Chairman and CEO Matthew Drake says alignment with the Indy Pass continues the company’s efforts to expand access to quality mountain recreation experiences, stating, “It is our culture to innovate, implement new initiatives, experiment, learn and then refine. Our first year with the Indy Pass is another exciting experiment.”

Mt. Hood Meadows immediately becomes the crown jewel in Indy’s Western region. It gives the Indy Pass a Mt. Hood anchor to compliment White Pass, Washington, and Hoodoo, Oregon, each about 2.5 hours from Portland. Meadows’ reliable Cascade snowpack comes from the constant barrage of winter storms that pound the Oregon coast before slamming into 11,225′ Mt. Hood. Its extensive terrain includes 1,700 additional vertical feet of hike-to snow fields and gate-accessed side country, affording Meadows premier status by any measure.
