With a few military bases located nearby in Colorado Springs, we get several flights over the ski area each winter. I was standing right on top of Pano ridge when I was buzzed by this transport plane today. I believe the majority of these pilot’s missions originate from either Peterson Air Force Base or Ft Carson Army Base. The military plays an important role in the local economy of nearby El Paso County and has a long-standing connection with Monarch. We have numerous visits each season from our nearby military families and guests. For many seasons now, our military families even have a special pass dedicated just for them here at Monarch. Thank you for your service and enjoy!
