If you haven't been to Colorado's Monarch Mountain yet, it's time to add the 1,000-plus acre resort to your bucket list. Often times overlooked by skiers set on exploring Colorado's larger resorts, Monarch is a gem without the lift lines and I-70 traffic found in Summit County. This season, Senior Photographer Liam Doran headed to Monarch for a day on the mountain's snowcat, which serves over 900 acres of advanced terrain usually packed deep with powder. While the sky was cloudy the snow didn't dissapoint.
