The only hotel on Monarch Mountain - FREE SHUTTLE to ski resort!




Join us in the small mountain town of Salida, Colorado to paddle, party and play during FIBArk, the nation's oldest and boldest whitewater celebration.

FIBArk (First in Boating on the Arkansas) still holds its signature event, the Downriver Race as well as freestyle kayak competitions, standup paddle board races, a Crazy River Dog competition and a Hooligan race, which is open to anything that floats. In addition to water-based events, FIBArk has extended its activities onto land, where it now hosts mountain bike races, a parade, a carnival, live music, running races, and there are dozens of whitewater and craft vendors, and the Chain Drain, a disc golf competition in nearby Poncha Springs.

Enjoy mountain views starting at the affordable price of $119 per night here at Monarch Mountain Lodge.
