Ski with a Naturalist
GARNA is again partnering with Monarch Mountain and the US Forest Service Salida Ranger District to offer locals and resort guests a free on-hill ski naturalist tour. Participants will learn about the history of recreation on Monarch Pass, ski area-USFS partnership, Monarch's green mission, and forest and wildlife ecology. Next time you're enjoying skiing or boarding at Monarch Mountain, enhance your experience by attending a Ski Naturalist Tour. The tour departs every Friday at 11:00 a.m. The group meets at the sign in front of Ski Patrol headquarters across from the Pioneer lift. Guests of all ages and abilities are welcome. The tour is free, follows all beginner runs and lasts for about 45 minutes.
