Join us September 14th for a tour of Monarch Mountain At The Crest!
Calling all Remote Workers! Join us September 14th for a tour of one of the most beloved Chaffee County outdoor industry companies!
In early 2022, Monarch Mountain’s (the skiing/snowboarding/tubing area a couple miles down the east side of the pass) General Manager Randy Stroud contacted Edie Schoenfeld about parking Shredder’s, one of ski area’s food trucks, up at the Crest for the summer months. Edie informed Randy that the Crest and Tramway were up for sale and under contract. That contract fell through and in October of 2022, Monarch Mountain purchased the Crest primarily for much needed parking space during the winter months. A new vision of the Crest was formed to include a full remodel of the interior, a grill and seating area, outside deck, tramway upgrade, new retail space and an informative and educational Visitor Center. The remodel began immediately after the purchase and the new Monarch Mountain at the Crest opened on May 19, 2023 with the Scenic Tramway to follow on June 10, 2023.
An exclusive ride of the Scenic Tramway followed by happy hour in the new Crest. Massive thanks to High Country Bank for sponsoring this visit!
