Full review

We went to Monarch as a ski vacation over the weekend. It was a great day with a lot of good snow, no lift lines and friendly staff. The food in the lodge was very reasonably priced and there was a lot of it. We had a great day until about 3:30 when we went in to use the bathroom, and one of our snowboards was stolen. We were inside for a maximum of 10 minutes, and when we came out, the snowboard was gone. When we went to report it, we found out that at least 5 other boards were stolen that day. I can't blame the staff at the mountain, but it pretty much ruined our ski vacation, since we couldn't go on Sunday. Make sure to LOCK UP YOUR STUFF!!! After it was stolen, we were talking to people, and they told us that theft is a HUGE problem at this particular mountain. I probably won't go back because of this experience.
