What you would expect from a real Colorado ski area; abundant natural snow, great terrain, and friendly people. At Monarch you will lose the crowds but not your friends. Snowcat skiing is also available. Monarch is the perfect place for families. All of the runs flow back to a central base area and there is free and convenient parking. In addition to the great food and beverage service offered, there is a sack lunch room where one may bring their own cooler. Ski School programs have been redisigned this year to offer the best products at a reasonable price. The Learn to Ski program starts at just $99.
