This is the perfect family, summer getaway! Been coming up here for 3 years now to escape the Texas heat. Always cooler up here than the town of Durango. Easy to get to Silverton and Ouray and nearby trails and lakes. The best part is the quiet, small environment here....perfect for our tweens to walk around the base area and partake in the fun activities (alpine sliding, bungee, ropes course, etc).
We have an ATV that we explored the resort mountain on every night...saw 5 bears...a mountain lion and many deer and marmots. Absolutely amazing experience and even more amazing backdrop of the gorgeous San Juan's.
Negative is not many restaurants....there's a coffee place / general store, Purgy's restaurant and a pizza and ice cream place. Stock up on groceries or plan to eat in town each day.
Bucks Livery was a great horse outfitter across the way. Did a 2 hour ride there. Not your ordinary nose to tail trail ride.
Can't wait til the next return!
