Hadn't initially planned on going to Durango, but wanted to go to Wolf Creek and found we could fly into Durango and both resorts were close together. Spent 3 days there. Had spring conditions. Great sun and still stashes of powder in the trees to be had from last dump. Enjoyed the apres ski at the base. Had a great $8 burgar and fries deal. Went to another bar coming out of the resort and going left and then almost immediately left into the lot. Can't remember the name. Had beers and great food there. Durango was also fun. Saw band at Amy's (i think was the name), and tried to learn the two-step at another. Stayed at Marriott Residence Inn which was great. Real good hot breakfast included and also daily happy hour until 8pm, with food, beer, wine.
