Here are a few photos from this past Sunday, skiing down at Monarch. Monarch is definitely one of my favorite places to ski. Of course there are a lot of places I have yet to go, but all in due time. Coming from Denver the drive is just under 3 hours an easy drive with lesser traffic than sitting on I-70 and it’s even that same way on the mountain. The lift lines move fast at Monarch, with plenty of trails and a vertical drop of 1162 feet.
Monarch has 800 skiable acres and sits in the Sawatch Range along the Continental Divide of the San Isabel National Forest.
Monarch also has 1000 acres of cat skiing available for experts who want a greater challenge. Click here for info, videos and photos on cat skiing from the Monarch website.
