Soak Up the Sunshine in Durango!

Kick off 2018 by getting outside! Our current sunny and warm days are making it easy to enjoy the outdoors, no matter what sport you love. Hit the slopes at Purgatory Resort, where you'll find winter fun without the crowds, or ski, tube, or ice skate at Durango's smaller, in-town ski slope, Chapman Hill.

Conditions are also perfect right now for mountain biking-- check out nearby Phil's World for stunning high-desert views and miles of singletrack (and discover why Outdoor Magazine named it #4 of "12 Easy (and Secret) Southwestern Escapes)". 

Help us welcome in 2018 with sunny days and adventure in Durango!
