As we welcome the first snow of the season with welcomed arms, it is also an important time to check your home! I recently published an article in the Durango Magazine, but have decided to share a quick checklist before winter fully hits.
- Make sure your sprinklers are winterized
- Check your roof for any major defects
- Clean your fireplace
- Pick up all items outside that may not make it through snowfall
- Maintain your snowblower
- Check your winter tires, replace if necessary
Here are some things to do this upcoming winter, these are my favorite!
- Get your season pass to Purgatory ski resort
- Ride in a Sleigh at Rapp Corral
- Sled down Chapman Hill
- Ride the Polar Express
- Take a hot yoga class at the Sweaty Buddah
- Attend the Festival of Trees
- Enjoy the snow in the hot springs at Trimble, or Pagosa Springs.
- Snowshoe around Molas or cross country ski at Hillcrest or the Nordic Center at Purgatory
- Go Ice fishing at Vallecito when it's safe to do so
- Attend the Ice Climbing in Silverton
- Ski Joring event in Silverton
- Snowdown Event downtown
- The shows at FLC Community Center
- Enjoy a hot cup of coffee downtown at Durango Coffee Company
Being a born and raised local to Durango, this is my absolute favorite time of year that's coming, and a lot of people underestimate it is a great time to travel here! It's a beautiful time to enjoy the power of nature as it nourishes our lakes, trees, and area for the upcoming year.
Get out and enjoy!
