Things To Do in Pagosa Springs: Experience the Winter Magic

Wintertime is an ideal time for your romantic long weekend getaway. You and your loved one can spend the day skiing or riding the deepest fresh powder in Colorado at Wolf Creek Ski Area. Wolf Creek is a hidden gem of a ski resort, offering over 1,600 acres of spectacular terrain for all ability levels. You are going to love the short lift lines-unlike the Front Range resorts-and be treated to some of the best skiing in all of the Rocky Mountains.


After your complimentary breakfast at the Inn, take the short scenic drive to Wolf Creek Pass and find your spot in the free lots at the base. The first chair is at 9:00 am. When you’re ready for a break, head to one of the resort’s slope-side eateries for a burger or a hot bowl of chili.


For something a little more mellow while still embracing the snowy landscape, we suggest taking to the trails for a romantic snowshoeing or cross-country skiing adventure. Another fun idea for our couples looking for things to do in Pagosa Springs, a unique adventure and thrill of a lifetime, is a Pagosa Springs dog sled excursion with Mountain Paws Dog Sled Tours. You will learn how to outfit, rig, and run a team of racing sled dogs along the sled track. Make your reservations early, as spots are limited and fill up quickly. This will be an unbelievable outing you won’t soon forget!


After you spend your days exploring the unique and extraordinary experiences the San Juan Basin offers, return to the Inn for a soak in the hot tub or steam in the sauna at the end of your adventure-filled day. Reserve your private soaking time slot at check-in so you can unwind and relax before dinner.
