Old Monarch Map
I just finished scanning in this old Monarch map. There’s no date on it, but my research suggests that it is probably from around 1963. The map mentions W.R. Berry as the ski area manager. From obituary information, I found, “BERRY, William Ray 1900 – 9 Jun 1964 (Marker; Cem. Rec: 13 Jun 1964, Sec. D, Blk 3, Lot 2, G4) (Salida Mail 9 Jun 1964) In 1951 he was an electric serviceman living at 223 E 7th St. In 1963 he was the manager of the Monarch Ski area.”
I received the map via postal mail from Cindy, Santa’s Helper, at Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole, Colorado. Many thanks, Cindy!
I also uploaded it to Skimap.org which claims to have the largest collection of ski area maps on the Internet. During the process I was told that my upload will have to be reviewed, before being posted. I also notice that they do not have our new 2008-09 version. I’ll have to go back and post it as well. All I’ll have to do is reference the URL to the map on the official Monarch site.
