Located less than a mile south of the Durango Mountain Resort at Purgatory, the Nugget Cabin is cozy cabin with scenic views, four-season activities, and rustic yet relaxing amenities. Surrounded by the San Juan National Forest, The Nugget Cabin enables you to enjoy beautiful views of the Colorado San Juan Mountains. With hiking trails, cross country skiing, and mountain biking available on and nearby the property, you'll have no problem rubbing elbows with the great outdoors. Skiing enthusiasts will enjoy the virtual slope-side access to and from Purgatory Ski Resort. After a day of exploration, head back to your cabin and work out those knots in the hot tub.


Each year, Durango hosts the Snowdown Festival, an event which includes fireworks and a parade. The parade is the centerpiece and usually occurs the last Friday of January or the first Friday of February.


The Animas River—El Rio de las Animas—runs through downtown Durango and boasts gold medal fly fishing waters, and is popular for whitewater rafting, kayaking, and canoeing.
