Full review

I've been here about 6 times over the last 10 yrs. and this one had to be the worst of all. Slushy conditions and not enough snow. Weird since all the other times I've been here have been great...sunny days and fresh powder about every morning. Staying at the slopeside lodge right at the lifts is a must. Too far to stay in Durango, about a 30 min. drive (or more) if you don't mind that, but I prefer not dealing w/rental car or bus with ski/poles, etc. Not a real party place, being an old mining town, but great for skiers and Durango has a few nice restaurants.
