Monarch Mountain’s base area is at 10,800’ in elevation. To avoid altitude sickness when coming from lower elevations
(which most of us are), you’ll want to give your body a chance to acclimate. That means getting a good night’s sleep the
night before you’re here, eating well and drinking LOTS of water. Hydration is very important when being active at
elevation, even if you don’t feel thirsty (alcohol and caffeine do not count).
Remember to bring your reservations confirmation(s). It can be printed or on your phone. Be sure to download any
images (bar code or QR code) before you get here as you may not have internet service to do so when you’re here.
If you plan on bringing your own lunch, please know that coolers, duffels, boxes, bins, bags…etc. must be left in your
vehicle. Items that do not fit in a locker are not allowed to be left in any building or around the base area. Saving tables,
camping in one spot or spreading out beyond reason is also frowned upon and you may be asked to move. We want
everyone to be able to enjoy a comfortable space to eat lunch or just take a break. While we welcome you to pack a
snack in your pocket for a little ‘fuel’ while riding the chairlift, we also have a variety of food venues for your dining ease
and pleasure. Please do not litter. (See our Amenities
page for dining options, menus and hours.)
