ive been to monarch on pow days and it is one of the most underarted mountains. stayed for 4 days there and i had such a blast some tips that i can remember
1.) i remember there being a really sick run under a chairlift, the slope was weird but it had some nice cliffs to show off
2.) when u get off the chairlift there is usually hiking to the right, DO IT, you can ski some really nice fresh pow runs and its a easy 20 minute hike no problem'
3.) when u get off the chairlift and go to the left and go down a little there is a gate to the far right, u can go through it and traverse more to the right and there is some sick ass lines, sorry i dont' remember where it exactly is
