Spring Break at Durango

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

What are your thoughts on forecasted snow conditions at Purgatory in late March???
Buddies are planning a trip to Durango or Telluride March 20th.

 

Just got back from Durango this weekend. 30 in base, warm skiing. Backside of mountain was good in the morning, but conditions got really soft in the afternoon. We really want to go back toward the end of march, but a little nervous making condo reservations.

Go elsewhere.  Most years March is great, this year DMR is having the worst year of almost anywhere in Colorado.  How much will be open in March is a serious question with a 30" base in Feb and a shrinking rather than growing snowpack. 

 

Telluride is not doing much better.
