Make Time for Play
Sometimes, we have to carve out a little time for what we enjoy the most. If you live in or near the mountains, chances are you are driven by the outdoors. In winter, especially, it’s easy to put aside that early skin up the mountain for the warm refuge of your bed after a long week at work. Instead of working to play, make a decision to value the things that bring you joy, and let us help!
We offer a variety of winter adventure packages that utilize the massive expanses of the Sawatch range. The angel of Shavano Skimo is an excellent trek for the experts out there looking for something new. This classic fourteener line is well known in the Arkansas River Valley as an incredible ski mission when conditions are right. Consider a private session or bring some friends to bring the price down per person.
Tired of riding the backcountry in your part of town? Borrow the Monarch Ridge for the day and map out a new course. Booking a trip with a guide, no matter your skill level, is an excellent way to get to know a new area. The Monarch Ridge Classic tour is a full day of laps through the gladed terrain with what is commonly referred to as “Perfect Trees.” If you’re lucky enough to live in Salida or Buena Vista, this trip is a fun departure from the local favorite, Monarch Mountain. It’s a very doable two-and-a-half hours from Colorado Springs as well.
However you get from the chair to the board, skis, or snowshoes, make it a priority this winter to spend time doing what you love. Booking a trip locks in a commitment that’s harder to ignore than just making a plan in your head. We all do it, but honor yourself this winter by committing to some play.
