“The Northeast is by far our best region for pass sales, and we are stoked to add these four new resorts,” said Indy Pass founder Doug Fish. “Peek’n Peak will complement our other Western New York resorts, and Tussey Mountain is a great fit with our growing presence in Pennsylvania.

Adding two more cross-country resorts in Vermont and Maine brings us to a total of twenty, including eight in New England, to kick off our inaugural nordic season.”

Peek’n Peak Resort

In 1964, Otto Schneibs of Lake Placid designed the Peek’n Peak trail map, using the 400’ vertical drop to best advantage. When it opened, Peek’n Peak featured a J-Bar and a T-Bar serving six trails.

Located on Chautauqua Ridge on the western edge of the Allegheny Plateau — just 20 miles from Lake Erie — Peek’n Peak captures plentiful early season lake-effect snow, with an advertised 180 inches of annual snow falling on 130 skiable acres. “The Peak” features 27 lighted ski trails, nine lifts and terrain parks for every skill level.

Peek’n Peak Parks have been going off the last few years. With a steady stream of Park Jams and a rising social media presence, the crew has been showcasing local talent. The parks are unique and progressive, with the 180 rail park showing off a skate inspired vibe.

The resort also features a championship golf course, a day spa, indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants, and Peak Mountain Adventures that includes the Aerial Adventure Course and Giant Dual Ziplines, Segway Tours, Miniature Golf, and The Soaring Eagle Zipline. The 108-room Inn at the Peak offers luxury accommodations including condo rentals, within a two-hour drive of Buffalo and most of Western NY.

  1. Nice. There are now enough ski centers on the Indy nordic pass, I will either not get to them all, or not get my money’s worth with my van Ho season pass.

  2. I’ve never been to Peek’n Peak (it’s a 6 hour drive for us) but I’ve always known it to be a rad little mountain. When I first went to ski bum in Big Sky over 25 years ago, I became great friends with a whole group of kids there that grew up as Peakers. We were known then as the Downhill Dirty Hippies. They were the nicest people and they were all rippers. One of them eventually became Dirt Bag Queen and they all have gone on since then to do great things. Some of them are still there, living the dream. Never underestimate the power of the local ski hills, no matter how small, they could be life changing. Hopefully the Indy Pass will make it easier for the next generation of rippers to check some of these places out.

    Additionally, I love that the Indy Pass is adding the X-C centers. Nordic skiing is such an overlooked segment of our sport. It’s a great way to get away from the downhill circus and spend time in the woods. Especially for families who just want to check out something new and low key. All we need now is snow, not r@!%.
