Snow, snow, SNOW!

To kick off January a winter storm brought nearly 3 feet of snow to Monarch Ski area! What a treat to ski beautiful powder for days as this storm moved in and hung around for several days. A visitor who had just returned from skiing in blizzard like conditions on the mountain as he looked around the motel parking lot surrounded by blue skies and sunshine expressed “It’s like a whole different world down here!” While a lot of people in Salida love skiing Monarch powder, we are all a bit spoiled by the fair weather in town. It seems like a prize to wake up with hardly a dusting of snow and no need to shovel before taking off to ski 18 inches of fresh snow at Monarch Mountain. (Did we mention that it’s less then a half hour from Salida?)

Room updates continue…

To start this year we have been busy making the Woodland even better.  Renovations are underway in the queen sleeper rooms.  We are updating the space with new flooring, fresh paint, a bathroom with more space, larger shower, easier entry and a really cool mirror.  Don’t worry, we will keep the coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave.  Our plan is to have 9 remodeled rooms by summer.  All of our rooms are still the cleanest around, with updated mattresses and fresh linens. Check out our reviews–we practice what we preach!
