Powder Alliance: The Best in the West!

We already highlighted the top 10 reasons to buy a Sierra season pass, but another great reason is that you gain EXCLUSIVE access to the Powder Alliance. But what’s the Powder Alliance anyways? And is it worth shelling out the extra dough for an Unlimited Pass ? Let’s break it down:

The Powder Alliance is an affiliation of 19 ski resorts throughout Western North America, Chile, and Japan that have teamed up to deliver an exceptional winter experience for passholders like you! Unlike the conglomerates in the industry today, there is no parent company dictating the operations of one resort over another. That means you get 19 different experiences as you travel from one to the next – no cookie cutter operations here. 

Here's the great part about Sierra's partnership with these other 18 resorts: You get 3 FREE days at each partner resort* with the purchase of an Unlimited Sierra Pass (Just $449 until 9/30!). You're smart and know that our Unlimited Pass is a bit more dough than our other options. But consider this, on top of the plethora of benefits you receive at Sierra alone when purchasing this beautiful piece of plastic, you’re going to save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars when you visit the other awesome resorts on the list. The bottom line: if you plan on traveling to various resorts throughout the West, Chile, and Japan, our Unlimited Pass is a competitive option and screaming deal.

The good news doesn’t stop there. New Powder Alliance partners for the 18/19 winter include Sugar Bowl Resort, CA, Loveland Ski Area, CO, Castle Mountain Resort, Alberta Canada, and Ski Marmot Basin, Alberta Canada! We’re especially stoked to have Sugar Bowl on board, offering you a great North Lake Tahoe option for next season. Read more on the addition of these top-quality resorts here .
