Overview Location

About Monarch Mountain

Monarch Mountain provides one of the most authentic ski experiences in Colorado. At Monarch, you can walk straight from your car to the lifts and spend the day on all-natural snow (350+ inches per year on average) at the top of the Continental Divide. Monarch’s variety of terrain offers something for everyone to explore, and a single base area makes it easier to keep track of family and friends.

At the base of Monarch Pass, in the sunny Arkansas River Valley, the town of Salida makes your visit complete. Salida’s locally-owned restaurants, riverside walkway, historic downtown and variety of lodging ensure that your vacation continues off the slopes.
