Ski for free, for a good cause.

Monarch Mountain is offering a free lift ticket with a canned food or cash donation on Monday, January 22.

In return for a food or cash donation guests will receive a free lift ticket good for that day or any other day during the 2017/18 season.

Monarch says the food donations will go to the Salida Grainery and cash donations will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Chaffee County.

“This is a great opportunity to help out the community and have a great time doing it”, says Dan Bender, Monarch Mountain Marketing Director, in a press release. “The Grainery and the Boys and Girls clubs are great organizations and here is an opportunity to help them out.”
