Welcome to Monarch/Garfield.

 

If you've never heard of Monarch ski area, you'd not be alone. It's the local's best kept secret in this part of Colorado. Nestled high on Monarch Mountain a stone's throw from Garfield, the two have shared the same fate for quite some time. Both once home to miners digging relentlessly for gold back in the day, they've matured to now become home to snowboarders and skiers from far and wide, though the locals love it the way the miners loved their gold.

If you're planning on coming to Monarch or Garfield, whether it be for that epic powder day and an escape from work, a weekend or an entire vacation, FourteenerNet has the resources to help you plan it. Our listings of guides, outfitters, lodging, dining, shopping and recreation options will help you find out exactly what there is to do in Monarch, outside of playing in the snow.
