Ouray and Ridgway Events this October

  
  
  

Say Farewell to Fall and Welcome Winter in the San Juan Mountains!

fall boxcanyon.2October in Ouray County promises to be a scary good time as we usher in another season of chilly days aand qiet serenity. What better time to visit than at the transition into the holiday seasons? From Octoberfest to Trick or Treat, October is by far one of the most spectacular times. The old addage that if you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes or drive 15 miles becomes even more apparent. It may be cloudy and damp in Ouray, but just a short scenic drive away, there is sunshine in Ridgway and snow in Silverton. The beauty is you never know exactly what you are going to get, bur be confident that no matter what Mother Nature decides on, it is going to be amazing.

At the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs, October also heralds the first month of our Once a Month Club. Members agree to spend at least one night each month through May with us in exchange for incredibly reduced rates. This is something we at the hotel look forward to every year, as we wait impatiently for our Winter regulars to start coming back and sharing their Summer adventures with us.

It may be a little more quiet, but that doesn't mean we are lacking entertainment in our tiny little county. Come for a day or a week, and enjoy all the Uncompahgres have to offer this October!
