Since 1994, the Second Chance Humane Society has worked in Ouray, Montrose and San Miguel Counties to provide a safe refuge for lost and displaced pets.

With strong community support, they have grown from a small group of volunteers offering foster services, to a new facility able to provide shelter to a large number of pets as they wait to find their forever homes.

Winter in Southwest Colorado is Full of Adventures

Posted by Guest Blogger on Wed, Feb 18, 2015 @12:02 PM

Ouray is not a sleepy little town with nothing to do in the winter.

We are a hopping little mountain town with lots to do in the winter. We have ice climbing in a world class ice park as well as some amazing back country ice climbing on waterfalls and natural ice fields. We have a huge Ice Climbing Festival the second weekend in January every year that brings thousands of people to town. There is snowshoeing, cross country skiing, back country skiing, hiking and ice skating. Ironton Park, just a few miles south of Ouray up Red Mountain Pass has amazing groomed trails maintained by the Ouray County Nordic Council. Several of our hiking trails are accessible year round like the Ouray Perimeter Trail and Bear Creek Trail. The Box Canyon Falls is beautiful to see in the winter all frozen. We have amazing sulfur free hot springs for soaking you bones after a day out in the snow and the mountains.
