Indy Pass Adds Two More Resorts in Colorado 

November 2022 

PORTLAND, Ore. (November 15, 2022) – 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,” said Indy Pass founder Doug Fish. “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.” 


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,” said GM Fred Klaas.

Base Elevation: 10,050

Granby Ranch 

Located just 90 miles west of Denver, Granby Ranch is a family-owned ski resort designed and operated with families in mind. The resort is laid out with two mountains, East and West, each offering different levels of terrain. While the East side is largely green and blue, the West side offers some more challenging blues and blacks, but all trails lead back to the base area, so family and friends can easily meet back at the same place.

It offers 121 Alpine and Nordic resorts across the US, Canada, and Japan, each providing two days of skiing or riding, and 14 Alpine Allied Resorts offering up to 50% discounts on lift tickets.

About Granby Ranch
Granby Ranch is located 90 miles west of Denver and three miles away from the town of Granby, Colorado. The resort features nearly 1,000 feet of vertical and over 400 acres of skiable terrain for all ability levels across two mountains and 41 snowy trails. The East Mountain is perfect for beginners and intermediates and is accessed by two high speed quad chairlifts. Granby Ranch’s West Mountain appeals to the advanced skier or snowboarder, and adventures there start on the Conquest chairlift. In May of 2021, Granby Ranch came under new ownership and management.
