Rex2 This Ski Season, Stay Slope-Side

By | activities, Adventure Packages, Adventures, Durango Mountain Resort, Durango Snow Conditions, Family Packages, Purgatory, Skiing, Snow Conditions, Vacation Planning | No Comments
  As ski season fast approaches, we have families calling to plan their winter vacation and we're reminded of the perks of booking ski-in, ski -out accommodations.     Three reasons we prefer to stay slope-side: The flexible schedule: Do you have an uncle who wants to be on the first chair and a cousin who can’t wake up before noon? No worries. Everyone can rendezvous when the time is right, but there’s no tension caused by schedule preferences when you can all hit the slopes at your own pace. And, some can ski out in the morning not return…

Living here in Durango, we don't really need to go anywhere for Spring Break!  It's all right here in our own backyard.  I'm planning a week for my family that we'll never forget! First, I reserved a hotel for us right in downtown Durango, with an indoor pool for the kids and a hot tub for us parents!  Plus, we'll be within walking distance of all the great restaurants and nightlife in Durango. On the first day of our Spring Break adventure, we're going skiing at Durango Mountain Resort!  Conditions have been great this year, and the groomers are incredible! …

Believe it or not, we were excited to see that the San Juan's are already seeing powder!  Last weekend, Silverton Mountain got 2 to 3 feet of snow which was enough to even carve some turns...  We are hopeful that this will be a sign of a great winter to come.  Check out the recent article in the Durango Herald about the fresh snow in Silverton. With an unbelievable amount of earth quenching rain over the last few weeks, all signs point to an amazing winter in the Southwest and that means amazing ski packages with great powder! As they…

All ski season long, we have been hearing about how there is not enough snow around the country for skiers to get their turns in, despite the fact that Durango Mountain Resort has maintained a base of more than 10 inches more snow than some of our Colorado neighbors (check out a CO Snow Report here).  Well, we have been faithfully doing the snow dance here at Gateway for some time and it is finally paying dividends today! We woke up to fresh powder this morning. Saw about 6 Inches at my house and about 3 in town when I…
