Anybody have one of the multi-resort passes for 2020-21? I'm thinking about Epic, Ikon, MCP, or Indy.

I've had Ikon since it started up. Bought one after the renewal discount went to $200 instead of $100. With the deferral option good until April, not really much of a risk.

A couple friends decided on MCP because it was less money. Plus they don't ski full weeks on vacations out west.

This is the second season for the Indy Pass. For $199 it's pretty easy to get your money's worth in the southeast with Cataloochee, Winterplace, Canaan Valley, Massanutten, and Bryce on it. Assuming willing to do a bit of driving and stay overnight. First season on Indy for Winterplace. Indy provides 2 days at each location any time, doesn't have to be consecutive. I think a third day is a 25% discount.
2020-21: Massanutten pass; Indy for Cat, Bryce, CV, Snow King; Ikon for Taos, Alta/Snowbird, JH/GT

I bought Ikon this year. It's the first time I have bought one of these passes. For me personally, it's perfect. Snowshoe, Brighton, and Solitude. I might try a long weekend at A-Basin this year as I have a buddy who lives in Denver.

I'm pretty stoked. I haven't been out west in several years now and doing this forces me to commit to it. My wife is excited too.
WOOOOOO!

Copper would also be worth your time on that trip.

Indy added two locations. Snow Ridge just east of Buffalo, NY, and Antelope Butte in WY. Snow Ridge gets lake effect snow, so averages over 200 inches. Only a few hundred feet vertical but the locals who make the drive have a very good time making fresh tracks after a storm. Antelope Butte was rescued from oblivion by the local community. Hasn't been open since 2004. It's managed by a non-profit now.
