Hesperus Ski Hill, as it's known by the locals, is where the locals go to learn to ski or for a short day of reasonably priced skiing. Yes, it is just a ski hill with one lift but the lift tickets are reasonable, it's just 12 miles from the Doubletree in Durango and it even offers evening skiing under the lights.
The hill is definitely low frills but it is also low on crowds and big on fun. Bring those that don't was to ski or board and they can enjoy the tube runs.
Hesperus Ski Hill is definitely worth a visit. Spend a day at Purgatory (Durango Mountain Resort) or Wolf Creek, but don't forget to visit Ski Hesperus.
