Powder Alliance adds 1 for 2014-15, reciprocal 3 free days by 13 ski areas

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

The Powder Alliance is back for 2014-15.  Press releases starting going out in mid-August from the partner ski resorts.  The new news is that Silver Star in BC, Canada was added as the 13th partner.  That's the first outside the U.S.

 

http://www.powderalliance.com/powder-alliance-expands-to-canada-with-the-addition-of-silver-star/

 

The better known places include Snowbasin, Bridger Bowl, and Schweitzer.

 

Worth checking the FAQs at the bottom of the Powder Alliance home page if you are unfamiliar with how the Powder Alliance works.  It's not like the Mountain Collective Pass.  To take advantage of the benefits, must buy an "anytime season pass" from one of the 13 ski areas.  Then can get up to 3 free days at any or all of the other 12 places, which are not exactly close to each other.  Each place sets their own requirements and blackout dates.  In general, free days needs to be Sun-Fri, so no free Saturdays.

 

Q) How much does the Powder Alliance pass cost?

A) Nothing. The benefits come free when you purchase a top-tier, anytime season pass to any one of the Powder Alliance resorts.

 

Q) Where do I get my tickets?
A) Traditionally in the season pass office however each resort has specific redemption information on their page. Please check it prior to visiting.

I was hoping they would snag a few more US ski areas over the summer but this is still a great pass.  Can't wait to put my days to use.

Thanks for sharing the good news.

I'm even happier that I renewed my Sierra at Tahoe pass.

I had the Powder Alliance membership as a benefit on my Arizona Snowbowl season pass last year. I used it twice, once at Sierra and once at Snowbasin. On both occasions they were "floating" days of an organized trip to Tahoe and Park City respectively. I was a nice perk, but I couldn't imagine making great use out of the pass because the resorts are so spread out, second tier and blocked on Saturdays.

 

If I was trying to choose between getting a season pass at Sunrise or Snowbowl, the Powder Alliance membership wouldn't sway me either way.

The Snowbowl pass has some decent benefits.  I used my Crested Butte days last season which saved me 200$.  I got some half off days at Purg and also got a free day at Monarch so mine was put to use.  Sunrise has like no partner resorts so easy choice for me.

I just renewed our passes and now the kids are older and can travel better, we will take a few more trips and appreciate the benefits more. Conditions permitting, we are planning to drive up to southern Colorado this Xmas. Not sure if we will get as far as Crested Butte but the Durango discount will come in handy.
