First Mirk Day

27 December

It was a beautiful day with blue skies, no wind, and soft turns to be found in the bowl and the trees. It’s always a significant day when we get Mirkwood open for the season. Monarch becomes the little, big mountain with a huge variety of terrain for all types of skiers and riders. It also means that our Monarch Cat Skiing staff can now focus their efforts exclusively on their terrain beyond the boundary line. Kudos to the Cat Guides, our Ski Packing crew, Ski Patrol, and our Cat Operators. A lot of work goes into opening this terrain.

Monarch Mountain is an equal opportunity provider and operates under a special use permit with the Pike San Isabel National Forest.
