MONARCH, CO – (News Release) – Monarch Mountain is offering free lift tickets on Monday, December 11, 2006, to encourage people to visit the area in central Colorado. Monarch hosted a very successful “Free Day” last February, bringing people to the area that had never skied Monarch and people that had not skied in recent years.

“We are a pretty low key, family-type ski area and we feel it’s important to offer a great value and to keep new people coming into our sport, and what’s a better value than a free lift ticket,” said Rich Moorhead, CEO. “This past summer we invested in a new rental shop and ski school learning center, this will be a good day to show off the new facilities” added Moorhead.

Complimentary lift tickets will be available at the ticket windows starting at 8:30am. Monarch is asking for a donation of a non-perishable food item but everyone will receive a free lift ticket. The donated food will be given to The Grainery a local organization that helps put food on tables during the holidays.

Monarch is located in the San Isabel National Forest 20 miles west of Salida, CO. Abundant natural snow (350 + in.) and friendly people are two of the area’s strongest attributes. For more information on Monarch Mountain or the free lift ticket day, visit www.skimonarch.com.
