When people think of skiing in Colorado, the first places that come to mind are Breckenridge, Vail, and Copper. Granted places like that are great but if you are looking for someplace truly special, head south to Monarch Ski Area.
There powder is overwhelming, lift lines empty, and skiing is very affordable.
Monarch Mountain is located only two hours south of Denver and just outside of Salida. Monarch Ski Area will amaze and surprise you. It really has it all. From backcountry terrain in Mirkwood Basin to a terrific ski/board school to wide open groomers, Monarch has all a person is looking for in a ski area. The place has a vibe that is unmatched anywhere else in Colorado, go there and it is either dumping snow or gorgeous and clear. Never have I been there and seen terrible conditions and I have made the trip from Northern Colorado more than a dozen times.
