Indy Pass adds Snow Ridge

Indy Pass logoThe Indy Pass is adding Snow Ridge in Turin NY to its lineup of New York ski areas. Passholders will now have access to four resorts in the state: Catamount, Greek Peak and recently added Swain Resort round out the list.

Snow Ridge — located in New York’s snowbelt — is a great addition to the pass, and potentially more so in a year when access to the powder of Vermont is in doubt.

For 75 years Snow Ridge has been delivering deep powder turns in the lake effect snow that falls to the east of Lake Ontario. Long before snowmaking became the price of entry in the ski business, it was the place to be for deep powder in New York.  To this day the 230+ inch annual snow totals, make it the snowiest resort in the state.

In 2015 the mother and son team of Cyndy Sisto and Nick Mir purchased Snow Ridge and have taken it up a notch. The pair has strong ties to skiing in central New York. Both spent a number of years working at Toggenburg; Cyndy in mountain ops and Nick in the terrain park and ski shop.

The duo has done a lot in five short years to modernize and revamp the resort. Tavern 230 got a makeover a few years ago, and the pub serves some of the best wings east of Buffalo. The resort has continued to be a center of the community with active school club programs, and nearby Fort Drum uses the hill to train.

In the park, Nick has revamped jibs and rails while laying down some of the smoothest jumps in the state. This year beginners can take advantage of a new magic carpet and après aficionados will enjoy a socially distant beer on the spacious new deck. This summer staff and volunteers cleaned and cleared new glades and five new trails.

  1. So technically 3.5 ski areas in NY. Isn’t Catamount partially in Mass? The Snow Ridge addition has me teetering. Not being able to get to Jay and Magic are a slight roadblock. If they could add McCauley I might bite as we are planning a trip to Old Forge this winter. I left an ACL at Snow Ridge at the end of 1999. Short on vertical but deeeeep on pow!

  2. Technically you are right about Catamount. Are you volunteering to be a writer? 🙂

    Be surprised if the roster is expanded further this year, but you never know.
