While you are out and about at Monarch Ski Area, look for the things less observant skiers will miss. Feel superior when you find them.
The original lift at Monarch. Steep terrain on a north face must have made this an exciting place to learn to ski. The background clues make this an easy place to find, you still have to work hard to get there.
The Mardi Gras trees. Several Englemann Spruce trees bejeweled with beads, and other interesting items. All on the same lift line.
Look for this weird compass-like device. Probably had mountain names on it at one time. Or perhaps it was for locating fires in the old days. Look closely at the photo, all the info you need to find this hidden wonder is there.
