Nice mountain while still being pretty laid back. Checked it out today, no skiing but look forward to a green run if I can get the guts.

First Class Skiing, snowboarding, sleigh rides, and more in the winter. Mountain Biking, Alpine Sled run, hiking, and several things around the village to do in the summer. The mountain biking is intense. Don't take your little ones on it. I'd wait till they were teens. It was scary for me.... riding the breaks all the way down. The resort is just 2 miles from our home a bit further north on US 550. Can't miss it.

SKI BOBBING:

What does a cyclist do when the snow hits and the roads are impassable? Grab a Skibob, of course. Also referred to as Ski Biking, these unusual contraptions were first conceptualized in Europe -- albeit not fully developed nor put into significant use -- well over 100 years ago as a means for practical winter transportation. Today, the modern adaptation of the bike built on skis is enjoying a bit of a contemporary renaissance. Riders are drawn to the exhilarating new take on the mountain experience: a speedy, high performance combination of skiing and mountain biking that is easier on the knees but can be taken to speeds of up to 125 mph (not to be attempted by novice riders, of course). Want to see what these things can do? Each year the Durango Mountain Resort (www.durangomountainresort.com) hosts an international ski bike festival in Colorado's Rocky Mountains.
