In 2014 the Powder Alliance was proudly named Best Season Pass Program by Ski Area Management magazine. In response to the development of other multi-area pass deals, a dozen Western resorts spread across nine states created the Powder Alliance to offer free lift access to "anytime" passholders from member resorts.
