20 Colorado Mountain Towns That Are Paradise In The Winter

Durango

Historic Hotels of the Rockies 

Durango is an ideal destination for multi-sport adventurers who want to be in heart of it all. The Animas River winds right through town and is known for some of the best rafting and kayaking in the state. Just uphill, you can be in the Rockies, hiking, skiing or even ice climbing in out-of-this-world alpine terrain. In the lowlands, visitors can enjoy year-round access to mountain biking with more than 1,000 miles of trails around Durango alone, as well as slot canyons and Anasazi ruins. In town, Main Street offers lots of Wild West charm along with modern amenities. You’ll even have the opportunity to hop aboard an historic steam train, the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. This narrow gauge train was built specifically to handle narrow mountain routes, and the journey between Durango and Silverton is one of the most breathtaking in the country.
