This winter wonderland getaway offers value and convenience by combining your lodging in the Durango area with round-trip tickets on the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. You’ll stay at your choice of lodging, and the next morning, you’ll ride the train into Cascade Canyon, which winds through the spectacular and breathtaking canyons in the remote wilderness of the two-million-acre San Juan National Forest.

You’ll enjoy the wild alpine scenery and relive history on this 1882 adventure from Durango to Cascade Canyon. Many of the coal-fired, steam-operated locomotives are maintained in their original 1923-1925 vintage condition. You can also take time to enjoy the Railroad Museum, located in the rail yard roundhouse featuring full-size locomotives, maps, photos, artwork, memorabilia and authentic collectibles.

For more winter fun, add optional discounted activities to your package. Choose from Purgatory Resort lift tickets and rentals, snowmobiling, horse-drawn sleigh rides, and Mesa Verde National Park tours.
