Powder Alliance Pass Program Crosses Border; BC's Silver Star Added
One of the widest reaching of the relatively new multi-resort passes — the Powder Alliance — has jumped the border into Canada, adding British Columbia's Silver Star to its list of western U.S. participants.
Silver Star is located above the Okanagan Valley and boasts 3,000 acres of skiable terrain and 116 marked runs.
The Canadian resort joins Crested Butte, Colo.; Snowbasin, Utah; Sierra-at-Tahoe, Calif.; Stevens Pass, Wash.; Timberline, Ore.; Schweitzer, Idaho; Angel Fire, N.M.; Bridger Bowl, Mont.; China Peak, Calif.; Mountain High, Calif.; Arizona Snowbowl, Ariz.; and Mount Hood Ski Bowl, Ore. as participating resorts.
Passholders at any Powder Alliance resort receive three free tickets at all other area, plus special offers on lodging, rentals, buddy tickets and more. The offer applies only to “top-tier anytime” pass holders only, not those that are restricted to midweek, spring or other times. Tickets must be used during the same season their pass is valid.
The value proposition is that the Powder Alliance pass offers 36 free days of skiing or riding at a wide range of western ski areas. There are no membership fees, no collective pass prices, nor any additional charges. Guests simply show their season pass from a participating resort t receive the benefits.
“The Powder Alliance has been on our radar for some time,” says Silver Star’s Anne Haight. “It offers exceptional value to our pas holders and allows them the freedom to explore other like-mined resorts within the United States.”
