Six lifts will whisk you up the mountain to access 54 trails ranging from easy greens to double black diamonds.

Monarch Mountain is 126 miles southwest of Colorado Springs. It takes 2 1/2 hours to get there from the Colorado Springs Airport (though budget a bit more time if there is snow on the roads). Monarch Mountain is a local favorite, with abundant natural snow, great terrain and an easy-going, friendly vibe. All runs flow back to a single base lodge, so it's a great choice for groups and families. Enjoy their great food or bring a cooler and store it in the sack lunch room. Parking is free and you can rent equipment and sign up for lessons online or once you arrive.
