Snowshoeing in Durango; A Unique Valentine’s Weekend

Spend Valentine’s Weekend in Durango, by exploring the beautiful backcountry of the San Juan Mountains.

Want a Valentine’s weekend in Durango you won’t soon forget? How about skipping the usual romantic comedy and opting, instead, for a once in a lifetime experience? Durango’s Purgatory Resort offers guided snowshoe tours, which could be the perfect way to make a special memory with that special someone for the upcoming holiday.

Tours start at $45/per person and include a guide, lift ride up the mountain and your snow shoes. Once at the top, you shuffle off the main drag and explore a snow covered meadow where your instructor educates you on wildlife and the local flora and fauna. Enjoy breathtaking views, a brief hike and a rewarding experience. When your ½ day tour is over, jump back on the lift and ride down the mountain where you can enjoy an après at one of the resort’s restaurants or head back to Durango and check out one of the many breweries. Reservations are recommended for their morning, afternoon or evening tours but plenty of spots are generally available. Call (970) 385-2147 for additional information and to book your tour.

Once again this year, the Quality Inn Durango is offering their Share the Love package. Call (970) 317-2846 and mention code VAL16 to get a complimentary bottle of wine with your room from local Four Leaves Winery. Four Leaves is located in downtown conveniently across the street from the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad station.

What’s more romantic then an afternoon exploring the mountains, an evening in downtown Durango, followed by a romantic soak in a hot tub? Book your package today at the Quality Inn Durango and make this Valentine’s weekend one you won’t soon forget, I think even Cupid would be jealous.
