USFS approves installation of new mountain feature
Monarch Mountain, a ski and snowboard area just outside of Salida, CO, has received the go ahead from the United States Forest Service to create a 450’ snow tubing hill in the area below the Ramble On and Little Mo runs. Ground clearing will begin immediately with plans to open the tubing hill this coming season.
"Over the years we’ve gotten a lot of inquiries about tubing in the area,” says Carol Novak, Monarch’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “With the new Monarch Tubing Park, we will be able to enhance the experience for our guests and offer families a classic winter recreational experience they can enjoy together."
Near the bottom of the tubing hill will be a yurt for check-in, and a rope tow lift will be installed for the uphill ride.
