When sleigh bells ring and snow comes to cover the ground, the city of Durango becomes its own winter wonderland. From the Opening Day of Purgatory Mountain Resort to Noel Night, the Snowdown Light Parade, and famous Polar Express, this mountain town was made to celebrate the holidays. Spend your days dog sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice skating, ice climbing, and more. Find your own Christmas tree aboard the Christmas tree train to the national forest, enjoy dinner on a snowcat excursion with views of the Needles range, and ring in the new year with a downtown firework show and parade. However you decide to spend your winter days in Durango, a roaring fire and mug of hot chocolate will always be ready for you inside.
