The ski and snowboard season is here, and Colorado has no shortage of resorts. Monarch Ski Resort is one of them, with its base located at a staggering 10,790 ft elevation, high in the Sawatch Range of the Colorado Rockies.

At Monarch Ski Resort, you can enjoy carving fresh powder in the morning, break for lunch at one of their three fantastic restaurants, and head out to hit the terrain park in the afternoon.

If you’re looking for something a little different, you can take a snowcat tour, or strap on your board and explore the 130 acre Mirkwood Basin for some extreme riding.

For you veterans who are always looking to switch it up, Monarch Ski Resort is partnered with 17 different ski resorts that offer free days and deep discounts to Monarch Ski Resort season pass holders. So what are you waiting for? Slap some wax on that board and hit the slopes!
