Winter In Pagosa Springs

This winter was one of the mildest we’ve seen here in Colorado, but it didn’t keep people from visiting and playing in what snow we did have! People still hit the slopes, snowmobiled, cross-country skied and sledded. The hot springs were hopping and the little town of Pagosa Springs came alive. Now, the snow is melting and we are awaiting a very active and exciting Spring season! Enjoy some winter photographs below!
