Due to incredibly good snow conditions during the 2019-20 ski season, Monarch Mountain has announced it is extending its ski season through Sunday, April 12. This makes two consecutive years that Monarch Mountain has been able to extend its ski season.
The current season is on pace to be a record season for the second year in a row, which, in turn, creates business for Chaffee County businesses. “What a great way to wrap up 80 years of skiing at Monarch. We appreciate our loyal guests helping us to another record year and want to keep the momentum rolling”, said Dan Bender, Monarch Marketing Director.
Closing weekend will not be without its traditional events. Monarch’s signature event, Kayaks on Snow will take place Saturday, April 11. “Kayaks on snow is a celebration of a great ski season transitioning into the Valley’s boating season, which seems to be shaping up to be another incredible water year,” Bender added. Closing day will see the Gunbarrel Challenge, which is a race from the bottom of Monarch’s original 1939 run, Gunbarrel, and back as well as the end of season cookoff in the parking lot taking place on Sunday, April 12.
