Earlier this spring 4 major independent resorts joined the Alliance (Sugar Bowl Resort, CA, Loveland Ski Area, CO, Castle Mountain Resort, AB Canada, and Ski Marmot Basin, AB Canada) and now Monarch Mountain in Colorado makes it 19.  Spanning 4 countries and 2 hemispheres, the Powder Alliance is one of the world’s most powerful reciprocal season pass programs offering top-tier pass holders three (3) days at 18 other premier winter destinations.

“We feel a true kinship with the other areas in the Powder Alliance and are elated at the chance to work them…and to share new mountain experiences! We want to encourage everyone to keep exploring, keep getting outside, keep searching for that perfect powder stash. Here’s to new adventures!”

Carol Novak, Director of Sales & Marketing at Monarch Mountain
