If you’re looking for an exhilarating thrill ride of a different kind and looking to get some giggle-inducing zooms down a hill this season, Durango has a few options for snow-tubing or sledding during your Winter getaway. Here are some of the best spots for it:
For high alpine views of the San Juans and some exhilarating snow tubing after a day on the slopes, head up to Purgatory Resorts on Highway 550, tube rentals are $10 and the hill is open from noon to 7 pm. Purgatory offers some of the best views in Colorado and is sure to make for a memorable family getaway.
The new Marmot Hill area on the west side of the mountain at Hesperus Ski Area offers the perfect pitch for snow tubing. Lots of lanes provide you the opportunity to have a friendly race with family and friends whether day or night!
Tube rentals here are $10 a day and a perfect place to get some laps in on the hill without leaving town. Also known as Chapman Ice Rink, this spot sits just below the Fort Lewis College Campus, so hot chocolate from town is just minutes away.
