Ouray County: Relaxation, Romance and Adventure at your Fingertips This February!

winter14As winter sets in with its usual ups and downs, February is a time for restful enjoyment. Ouray and the surrounding are are the ideal spot for a romantic weekend away, or an exciting adventure in a winter wonderland.

The Ouray Ice Park is in ideal condition for those back for more, or first time climbers looking for a check on the bucket list.

Snow shoeing and cross country ski trails line what in the summer months are amazing hiking trails, now covered in a blanket of snow.

A long soothing soak in the healing waters of all natural mineral hot spring tubs is  a lovely way to begin or end your day in the San Juan Mountains!
