Says John McColly, Powder Alliance, “Your winter road trip just got even more amazing with two new resorts in Washington.  Whether you are covering the West Coast or hopping abroad to Japan and Chile, these are two mountains you definitely don't want to miss.”

White Pass, WA:

White Pass is located in Washington’s Cascade Mountain Range, just SE of beautiful Mount Rainier.  Champion ski racing twins Phil and Steve Mahre (and their seven siblings) grew up there, where their father Dave “Spike” Mahre was the Mountain Manager.  White Pass lives up to its name with 400 inches of snow each season and 2,000 feet of vertical.  Choose from a relaxed family atmosphere at the base or pulse-quickening steeps off the Great White Express.  The area’s mid-mountain lodge, High Camp, is also the perfect meeting place for brunch or an afternoon beer.  

White Pass features slopeside lodging at the Village Inn, on-site Child Care, multiple dining options, a full-service learning facility, and Nordic rental & retail centers.  If you are chasing powder on a big road trip, the only thing better than experiencing the deep snow of White Pass is doing it for FREE with your Mountain High season pass.

Mission Ridge, WA:

Mission Ridge offers 53 designated trails and 2,250 vertical feet of spectacular chutes, screamers, and bowls.  Located on the Eastern side of the Cascade Mountains, this Washington resort is known for 300 days of sunshine annually.  Mission Ridge is a little higher and a little drier than their Cascade-counterparts plus there is a big backcountry component that you don’t want to miss.  Small mountain vibe with big mountain skiing and riding….That’s Mission Ridge.  2,000 acres gives you plenty of property to explore by day plus another 500 acres to enjoy most nights.  Now one of two resorts in Washington, Powder Alliance Pass holders can get their fill of one of the snowiest states in the Union for FREE.

Mountain High pass holders receive three (3) days at all Powder Alliance Resorts plus Snow Valley, CA.  That’s up to 57 FREE tickets each winter!  Restrictions apply and all tickets must be used in the same season as the accompanying pass.  Guests are encouraged to visit for a complete list of participating resorts and restrictions.
