The Powder Alliance Just Got A Little More Powdery

The Power Of The Alliance

Powder explorers unite!  Fourteen of the greatest powder stashes in the country – now including Whitewater Ski Resort in British Columbia, Canada – have joined forces to create the Powder Alliance, a group of specialty resorts dedicated to ensuring you spend as little time behind a desk as possible. Buy an anytime season pass to any one of these 14 exciting areas and receive three FREE days at all the rest. That’s 39 FREE tickets!

This season the Canadian resort, Whitewater, has been added to North America’s premiere multi-resort season pass program. Located just outside Nelson BC, on the famous Powder Highway, Whitewater Ski Resort is known for one thing…Powder!  More than 40 feet (12 meters) of dry, dependable snow falls each season and there are 1,184 acres for you to explore.  The spectacular scenery and lift accessed backcountry is legendary amongst ski tourers & off-piste snowboarders, and now top-tier pass holders from any Powder Alliance resort can experience it this season for FREE.
