Monarch Mountain is the perfect ski area for people looking to get away from the hustle-bustle of the bigger resorts. Monarch is very affordable and easily accessible from the Front Range via Highways 285 and 50. At Monarch you park right at the base of the mountain and walk to the lifts, making it very convenient for families with little ones. Monarch's two strongest attributes are friendly people and abundant natural snowfall (350"). This season give Monarch Mountain a try. You'll be glad you did.
