Granby Ranch and Echo Mountain are the third and fourth Colorado resorts to join the coalition 

The Indy Pass has added Colorado resorts Granby Ranch and Echo Mountain to its growing roster for the 22/23 season. They join Colorado’s Sunlight Mountain and Bluebird Backcountry, both added in the past few months. Granby Ranch will blackout the Christmas Holiday, and all other Colorado Indy resorts will offer unrestricted access for Indy Base Pass holders.

“Colorado is the epicenter of skiing in North America, and we are proud to now have four partner resorts there. There are so many great pass options for Coloradans that we don’t expect pass sales in the state to be huge. However, our passholders from around the country will be stoked to have these great additions for their Rocky Mountain vacations.”

– Indy Pass founder Doug Fish

Echo Mountain

Echo Mountain is the closest skiing, snowboarding, and tubing area to Denver, Colorado. A small local ski area located just 50 minutes from downtown and sitting at two miles high, Echo has a little something for everyone and gets you more time on snow while offering an experience totally different from neighboring mega-resorts.

“We’re thrilled to be joining this very special collection of independent resorts and look forward to Indy Pass holders making Echo Mountain the first stop on their Colorado tour.”

– GM Fred Klaas
