Silver Star in exclusive company

Silver Star Ski Resort has been invited to join some exclusive company. The mountain is the first Canadian resort accepted into the Powder Alliance, a group of ski hills throughout the Western United States that all share a multi-resort seasons pass.

This means that pass holders at all of the connected resorts will receive three free tickets at all other participating mountains, plus special offers on lodging, rentals, buddy tickets and more.

The alliance is made up of 13 resorts with a combined total of 10,653 annual centimetres of fresh powder and almost 21,000 acres of skiable terrain.

  • Stevens Pass, WA
  • Mt Hood Skibowl, OR.   
  • Timberline, OR
  • Schweitzer, ID
  • Bridger Bowl, MT
  • Snowbasin Resort, UT
  • Crested Butte, CO
  • Sierra-at-Tahoe, CA
  • China Peak, CA
  • Mountain High, CA
  • Arizona Snowbowl, AZ
  • Angel Fire Resort, NM

The Powder Alliance privileges only apply to top-tier, anytime passes and not midweek, spring, or other restricted options. Restrictions apply and all tickets must be used in the same season as the accompanying pass.

“The Powder Alliance has been on our radar for quite some time,” says Anne Haight, Director of Sales & Marketing for Silver Star Mountain Resort.

“It offers exceptional value to our pass holders and allows them the freedom to explore other like-minded resorts within the United States.  From the steeps of the Pacific Northwest to the champagne powder of Utah, the Powder Alliance is simply the best value of any group pass product in North America.”        

Guests are encouraged to visit or their resort’s official website for a complete listing of restricted dates and resort benefits.
