Spring weather in Colorado is unpredictable and very fickle.  This year is no exception.  We’ve had unusually cool days mixed with warm sunny days.  Here it is May 20th and it snowed on and off a few times today. We’ve lived in Durango nearly 30 years, and I don’t remember seeing snow this late in May.  I also don’t remember having such surreal and vivid sunsets.

Moisture is always a welcome sight around these parts – especially since this area was in a severe drought last year. So, bring it on…we all say!  While the snow is not sticking in Durango, Purgatory Resort, about 30 miles north, just announced it will open again for skiing this Saturday and Sunday!  So, if you packed the winter gear away, get it out again and hit the slopes!

The historic train ride on the Durango & Silverton Railroad is also a great option this time of year. You’ll witness the spring colors and flowers in its glory in Durango, and plentiful sightings of remaining snow in the high country as you journey to Silverton, Colorado.

No matter what your pleasure this spring, let us know if you have questions or how we can help make your Durango visit perfect!
