Most of Colorado's ski areas will be closing over the next couple of weekends. Monarch Ski Area's last lifts ran on Sunday, but not without some closing day festivities. Skiers and snowboarders race to the top of the double diamond run, Gun Barrel, and then ski or snowboard down for a golden boot trophy. Winners of a parking lot tailgate cook-off got season passes for next season. The lifts were free for the day on Sunday, April 8, 2018. (Photo by Jerilee Bennett, The Gazette)

Monarch Ski Area's last lifts ran on Sunday and a group of seasons pass holders from Colorado Springs say goodbye to snowboarders and skiers as they leave the resort. Winners of a parking lot tailgate cook-off got season passes for next season. The winner of a race up a black diamond run and back down would win a golden boot trophy. The lifts were free for the public on Sunday, April 8, 2018. (Photo by Jerilee Bennett, The Gazette)
