Of course the first time we go it's unseasonably dry. Not much snow, runs are pretty short but pretty good for relatively new skiers. I'm 41 and ski mostly blues and wide open blacks.

The drive is beautiful, the mountains still had snow in May and you again cross the Continental Divide. We have visited in winter and the skiing is awesome with major snow fall. However, we have enjoyed the area in all seasons.

What can I say about this resort? The nearest hotel is in Pagosa Springs, 35 miles away, but since Red McCombs made a deal with the federal government, that may change soon. It is a wonderful place for the family to enjoy an outing skiing...More

look into the high country lodge. The rooms are a bit small but very clean. They have amazing hospitality.
