Silver Star joins Quest

Silver Star Mountain Resort joins Wild West Powder Quest through the Powder Alliance.

Silver Star Mountain Resort is getting in on the Wild West Powder Quest through the Powder Alliance.

The contest is a visit-based sweepstakes designed to get skiers and snowboarders exploring their world and discovering the best powder stashes in western North America.

Any participant who visits a Powder Alliance resort before April 30, and tracks it with the Ski Nation app (available on iPhone and Android devices) will receive an entry into the sweepstakes.

A total of 13 winners will receive a two-day, two-night lift and lodging package to the Powder Alliance resort of their choice next winter season (excluding holiday periods). The more resorts a participant visits, the better their chances of winning.

To register, visit, then download the Ski Nation app and create a matching profile.

Other participating Powder Alliance resorts include: Angel Fire, N.M.; Arizona Snowbowl; Bridger Bowl, Mont.; China Peak, Calif.; Crested Butte, Colo.; Mountain High, Calif.; Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, Ore.; Schweitzer, Idaho; Sierra At Tahoe, Calif.; Snowbasin, Utah; Stevens Pass, Wash.; and Timberline, Ore.

For every resort visited, the Ski Nation app will award a digital badge. Each badge counts as one entry into the Wild West sweepstakes. Winners will be chosen by random draw and announced on May 15.
