To Monarch!

Anyone heading to Monarch from Pueblo, Canon City, or Colorado Springs that has room for one or two?

Can't seem to find people this weekend to carpool up here on campus!

14 inches in last 24 hours come on people!?

Monarch on Saturday was incredible! It was one of the best days of skiing I have had in years. We went back up today to get the hiking freshies only to find out that a power outage shut down all of Monarch. We got some coffee and heard that they had no idea how long it would take to fix the power outage so we left. I'm glad I only had to drive from BV.

I second that Marko. We actually hiked one lap under the Breezeway and watched them dig up the catwalk to the Garfield chair before we left. Turns out a transformer blew next to the chair and they had to dig the snow out to the ground to allow an Excel truck in to replace it! Hopefully it's done for tomorrow, I do feel bad for those that drove from distances though...

pretty epic storm. today was a total washout though. I had four kids chomping at the bit and it was a no go. I was reading Newsweek at the pool by 1pm while the kids played wondering how it all could have gone so wrong.

Friday was off the hook. It was snowing at an incredible intensity and was really dry and skiing fast. Stoked to get up there in the morning and shred what should have been today's pow.

I agree friday was the bomb! For a couple of hours there we were getting 3" a hour. The snow at the top of Mirk was chest deep and I was getting face shots off every turn. There was no one on the hill so every run was fresh tracks.

Saturday was good too but it was definitely a zoo. I dodged the crowds all day and I was pretty successful at it. I took today off to take my kids sledding and I was blissfully unaware of the problems up there. I will have to head up tomorrow to get the rest of the pow!

Yep, Saturday was one of the best ever. Certainly over 3' and even 4' deep blown into Mirkwood. Reh Lynn and I made three early hikes to freshies in 3 Snags, Staircase, and East Trees. The slopes were loaded and sliding with us. Every turn was a whoo-hoo and face shots. Similar experience at the in-area lift served trees, too. Wish everyday could be like that.
