Photo Drop: Three Days in Monarch

Last February, the Bishop Team headed to Monarch Pass, Colorado to spend three days in waist deep fluff.  The trip was planned around Monarch Mountain's "Tele-Festivus",  a freeheel get-together  brought to us by Mountain Chalet, an outdoor retailer in the Colorado Springs area.  

We're not here to tell you a story about twelve of the best knee droppers coming together from all over the world, staying in beautiful log home at the base of the pass, hopping on a snowcat, touring the backcountry, building booters, overcoming our differences in what a "telemark turn" really is, and all becoming great friends...  That did happen, but we'll let the photos share the story.
