Right in the center of historic downtown Durango, the Strater offers a real taste of the Old West. The friendly and professional staff goes out of its way to assist in any way possible. Home of the Diamond Belle Saloon--a must-see for the authentic Western atmosphere and local musicians. All of the downtown conveniences are within easy walking distance, and the best part is that winter is the "off" season in Durango, so prices are very reasonable. I've stayed here many times, and it's a delight every time.

This is probably my favorite place to ski, and I've skied pretty extensively in both New England and the West. There is great scenery and friendly people. The only thing lacking is more difficult terrain for experts. I never stood in a line all week, they had comfortable temperatures, and this year they have the best snow/conditions I've seen in the last 7 to 8 years. Durango is a great town to visit—you'll need a rental car to get from town to the various resorts.
