We have been working for several years to create better access to a portion of our permitted cat skiing terrain. Monarch was recently approved by the USFS and through USFWS consultation to create an over the snow access to this piece of terrain. This zone features southeast facing lines through cliff bands to a pick-up location down in the lower Mirkwood Basin Terrain. We have spent a few days out there over the last week dialing in our routes and coordinating with our local USFS office. We plan to conduct the tree work for our snowcat access and pick-up later in the summer. Just another reason why MCS continues to be one of the premier cat-skiing operations in the state.
