Wow! Just spent 2 days skiing at Durango for the first time with my wife and 10year old daughter. I was shocked that the mountain was NOT crowded because of Spring Break. Did not wait one time (Friday/Saturday). Normally Ski Taos, Santa Fe, Angel Fire, but loved this mountain. Great Wide runs. Funs runs with trees and tons of up and down hills on the runs where you could not see what was next! Perfect Place for Intermediate Skiers. Stayed in Durango and arrived at resort in 25 minutes after leaving hotel in town. All highway - easy access and safe road from Durango. Parking does need to be expanded - but minor issue compared to the positives. Two Great Lounges/Restaurants on Mountain with plenty of room and options. Suggestion: take Harris Hill Run to Lift 3 or you may be using your poles, especially with children. Great Signs unlike Wolf Creek. We had about 5 runs where we did not see one other person! We skied to 4:30pm each day. Favorite Part: The ability to sit in lounge chairs on the snow at the mountain restaurants and in front of the logde after skiing - Great Unique Culture! As a New Mexican, pleasantly surprised could get Green Chile on the mountain and in Durango! Two of the Best Days of Skiing we have ever had as a family!
