Monarch Closing Weekend 2013 Edit

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I made an attempt at a watchable Go-Pro edit. 

 

I took Friday-Sunday to go close out my season at Monarch. It had snowed all week and had about 4" down on Friday- the high point of which was hiking Mirkwood and dropping into Staircase. Little did I know that that would be my only chance, as high winds closed Breezeway for Saturday and Sunday.

 

Closing day Sunday had 13" down, and more than a little drama. The storm had killed power to the area overnight, and it was not online until 10:30.  From then it was a frantic effort to get the lifts spinning, and Panorama did not open until around 11:15 because of wind concerns.  The combination of closing day, powder day, and the lift craziness led to a lot of people hitting it HARD and having a great time, including myself.
