I stayed here during the summer. Lots of activities. Beautiful resorts and a great way to get out of the desert heat! Durango is a cute little town with lots of great breweries. I'll have to come back in Winter!

It's a 30min drive to town. Waiting on a shuttle might be even longer. I'd get a car. Parking was free during ski times, so not sure if you have to pay to stay on the mountain.
