Monarch Mountain reviews
This is my third time to Monarch Mountain. I was here 20 years ago! And came back in Dec 2020 and again in March 2021. The mountain is beautiful and the views of the Continental Divide are amazing... more »
Great place to ski or snowboard! A smaller mountain, but fun and hardly any lines to wait in for your turn on the lift. Super fun blues and greens with lots of space to have fun on the mountain. Food and drink options in the lodge are fantastic. The whole staff are kind, friendly, and make you feel like you're family. Perfect place for a family or just a getaway with you and some buddies. I always have a blast when I'm at Monarch!
Wonderful mountain. They do not have good half day rates. My 10 year old had to buy a adult pass just to use the bunny slope.
