I have Verizon and haven't been able to get reception there.

I have Verizon and only get service at the VERY top of the mountain when you get off the Breezeway and Panoramic lifts.

I worked for ATT a few years ago and actually worked with the team that enhanced the Monarch Pass coverage for them.

AT&T is the only wireless carrier on the pass and in the direct area.

All carriers have holes in their network, this area is a big one for Verizon and everyone but ATT.
