For the 2014-2015 Season Monarch Lodge is CLOSED for renovations.
For the most convenient lodging around, try the Monarch Mountain Lodge.
It is in tiny Garfield (also called Monarch), Colorado, a quick 10 minutes from the ski area. This is an excellent choice if your group is composed of both downhill skiers and backcountry skiers. Both types of skiing are nearby and the lodge is a convenient meeting place at the end of the day.
It is a true Colorado Ski Lodge,with large comfortable rooms, and a nice lobby with warm fireplace. It has a good restaurant for fine dining in the evening, and a hearty breakfast to keep you skiing hard all day. They also offer a pool, outdoor hot tub and sauna. To top it off, they even have a few pet friendly rooms for your ski dog.
