High astride the Continental Divide in central Colorado sits Monarch Ski and Snowboard Area. The area is shaped a bit like a catcher's mitt, so with a base elevation of 10,790 feet and a summit just shy of 12,000 feet it catches an average of 350" of snow each year. The high elevation and semi-arid climate conspire to keep what does fall dry and long-lasting. There is, understandably, no snowmaking at the mountain.
