For us old timer’s we still think of this great ski mountain as Purgatory. It’s official name is Durango Mountain Resort. In my opinion February and March are the best months to ski DMR. You get these blue bird days, that means sunny with a beautiful blue sky, and temps that are comfortable. Durango Mountain has terrain for all levels of experience. I enjoy skiing the green and blue runs as they are nicely groomed, great for beginners, casual skiers and families. They even have groomed black runs for those a little more daring. The drive from O-Bar-O Cabins isn’t long. As the crow flies you could be there in 15 minutes but that would require going over a ridge! It takes about 40-45 minutes to get there. Well worth the drive to have a warm, cozy cabin to come back to with a fireplace, no less! If you aren’t a skier there are other activities right at the mountain. It’s fun to take the little one sledding. To see the look on their faces when they cruise down the snow is priceless. Regardless of what activity you choose to participate in you will have fun. Just don’t forget to bring the sunscreen! Now hit the slopes and carve some turns.
