Monarch Mountain will extend its season by two weeks because of snowfall, the ski area announced Sunday. Monarch will now be open until April 21, opposed to April 7 as originally planned.
“This season has already proven to be quite an exceptional one,” general manager/chief operating officer Randy Stroud said. “After a few seasons of below average snowfall it is extremely rewarding to be able to share our love for the mountain with our guests.
Monarch currently has a 100-inch base after receiving 240 inches of snow this winter, and its forecast for more winter storms is favorable for the rest of March and April.
