What Does Watching Ski Racing Do For You?

by Guest on Feb.27, 2013, under General

This blog comes to us from Veronica Whitney, Editor of El Montañes, the Hispanic newspaper of Western Colorado.

There’s nothing like watching a little bit of ski racing to get me in the mood again to take to Aspen my dust covered Volkl GS Racetigers out of the garage. I’ve been following the Alpine World Ski Championships in Schladming, Austria, for the past two weeks and with every race I watched I got excited again about skiing the “real” skis.

We ski at Monarch at least once a season. It’s perfect for family ski getaways, and I’m not just saying that I swear. We love skiing at Monarch because it’s affordable, easy to get to, easy to get around the mountain, they have a nice variety of terrain, good infrastructure, it’s easy to get around the town, and their mascot is the butterfly, and how can you not like butterflies?
