Skiing & Snowboarding

The Leland House is a short jaunt from both Purgatory and Wolf Creek–Two of the Southwest’s finest ski destinations. Whether you are a beginner (take a lesson!) or experienced, get some time on the slopes during your stay.


Enjoy the snow at high speeds! Snowmobiling is an exciting way to get outside in the winter, and readily available around the Durango area. Book your trip with a snowmobiling company nearby, or travel further out to more remote options. Either way, get ready to hold onto your hat.

Ice Climbing

Just an hour drive from Durango, Silverton is home to well-known ice climbing. Whether to go and watch the climbers, or to get geared up and guided to give ice climbing a shot of your own–you’re sure to be awestruck!


If you love hiking, and you love the quiet beauty of winter, you will adore snowshoeing. For a small investment, you can rent or purchase your own snowshoes, and visit dozens of trails and hiking spots in the area.

Polar Express™

Experience the magic this holiday season! Join the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad for a truly magical recreation of the classic holiday story, THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride. Climb aboard a vintage steam train as it departs our Durango Depot for the North Pole to pick up Santa Claus himself. Upon arriving at our depot, you’ll be immersed in the story as our chefs serve you hot chocolates and sweet treats while the conductor recites a reading from the Polar Express book. After arriving at the North Pole, you’ll enjoy an incredible light show set to holiday music. On the return trip to Durango, Santa will visit each coach and hand out the first gift of Christmas to each passenger. Book your tickets in advance, as this special seasonal experience sells out quickly!
