Monarch Mountain announced today that it is lowering the number of people need to achieve group discounts.
According to Monarch, traditional group ski travel has been defined as a minimum of 20 to 25 people to receive group discounts. Now at Monarch, group pricing is now available to parties of ten or more with all-day adult lift tickets starting as low as $40.
Also, lift tickets are available at the $40 adult rate at Costco in packs of three; the tickets have no blackout dates and can be used all at once or over three different days.
“The group ski travel patterns have changed; skiers that visited in large school and church groups are now coming as families and we want to accommodate these guests,” said Greg Ralph, Marketing Director. “We see a lot of multiple families visiting Monarch from our destination markets in the south. Colorado Front Range families are also coming to Monarch looking for a less hectic ski/snowboard vacation, so it just makes sense to help these guest with affordable pricing and professional service.”
Purchases of ten ticket products (lift tickets or lift tickets combined with a lesson or rentals) by a group/family will qualify for special pricing: $40 Adult lift tickets, $32 for teens ages 13-15 and juniors ages 7-12 are $17. These tickets are valid any day through April 13, 2014 (closing day) with no blackout periods.
Groups of ten can put together everything they need for the different ages, abilities and equipment types and still receive special pricing and treatment. Even Monarch Mountain’s complete Learn to Ski or Snowboard package at $89 for 7-12 year olds and $99 for adults can be part of the group of ten products. Monarch’s Learn to Ski package includes a lift ticket, equipment rentals and lesson from one of Monarch Mountain’s professional instructors.
Monarch has expanded its reservations department to include three group-planning specialists. These specialists are available online and on the phone to help families and groups build a winter ski/snowboard vacation. They can answer any questions and help with the purchase of tickets, rentals, lessons and child care, as well as provide recommendations for dining and lodging.
Special family and group information can be found at www.skimonarch.com under “family packages” or by speaking directly with one of Monarch Mountain’s professional ski planners at 719-530-5102. Reservations should be made 48 hours prior to arriving at Monarch.
