Monarch Mountain is moving its closing date to April 13, instead of April 6, due to the record amount of snowfall in December and January. It snowed over 21 feet in those two months. Monarch's base has just broken the 100 inch mark, thanks to over five feet of snow last week alone.
Monarch had to push back its opening this season because of lack of snow. But that isn't a problem anymore. "We opened late this year, missing Thanksgiving but we have more than made up for the late start," said Greg Ralph, Monarch Marketing Director. "We are going to add seven days to the end of our season. We missed 16 days early; it sends a good message to our season pass holders that we are committed to giving them as much skiing as possible."
Monarch's season is on track to break all records in the resort's 69-year history. "Traditionally our snowiest months are still ahead of us," said Ralph.
