Monarch 3:25-3:50 Vertical:1,100 feet

Monarch was a quick stop because it was our opportunity to make up time. It was too bad because it looked to be a great little mountain with plenty of hits. We skied soft snow on a long blue run called Slo-Motion and dipped into the trees along the sides whenever we could to get a taste of the deep stuff.

Monarch reminded me of the resorts back East like Vermont’s Bromley Mountain with its small, rustic looking lodge, double chairs, and above average terrain.
