Monarch Mountain Terrain

Located at the top of the Continental Divide, Monarch recieves huge amounts of snow from every angle. We offer lift served, hike-to, and snowcat terrain to choose from. Over 800 acres of in-bounds and an additional 1000 + acres of snowcat terrain make skiing/riding Monarch an unforgettable experience. If you're new to the sport, our friendly and patient instructors will show you the ropes without making you feel uncomfortable. Families love Monarch because of the friendly vibe, hassle free operations, and perfect runs for everyone. Brand new Ski School programs ensure that you and/or your children get the most out of skiing and riding while keeping it fun and relaxed.

Monarch Mountain Snowboarding

Tarrain Parks: 2

We are constantly working on our terrain parks; improving, shaping and using the varied snowfalls to help manipulate the terrain. One of the beauties of our parks is the low key attitude. Unlike the bigger terrain parks at other resorts, ours are super relaxed. Beginners won't feel intimidated by boisterous crowds while the more advanced skiers and riders have plenty of options to choose from. The terrain parks include fun-boxes, rails, hips, and hits. Beginner = Tilt, advance = Never Summer

What's New This Season at Monarch Mountain

A new parking lot is on the east side of the existing lot, near the vehicle maintenance area. This lot is located in a place that allows guests to ski/ride from their cars to the base of the mountain and back.

Located slope side, Elmo’s Bar was added to make it convenient for skiers/riders to enjoy a refreshing beverage without going to the Sidewinder Saloon. Big screen televisions carrying sporting events and picture windows looking out onto the mountain make Elmo’s Bar the newest hot spot for Après Ski.
