Experience Culture in Southwest Colorado

Ouray Hotel Welcomes Guests to Enjoy an Evening at the Wright Opera House!

As you may have read in previous posts, the Wright Opera House is a passion for us at the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs. After having fallen into disrepair for quite some time, the recent efforts of the Friends of the Wright to revive this historic venue have far surpassed expectations. With each booking, and every sold out show, the Wright Opera House establishes itself as a theater worthy of recognition. The proceeds from these shows is then used towards further upgrades and maintenance on a building that has remained virtually unchanged since the late 1800's.

November Events in Ouray and Ridgway, Colorado

Posted by Maria Ziemba on Tue, Oct 23, 2012 @11:13 AM

As fall begins to fade, and winter unveils her intentions, the San Juans prepare for a season of festivities and a healthy dose of relaxation.

Once the snow begins to fall, sledding, ice skating and all kinds of skiing are just a short distance from your front door. Until then, the hiking trails are calling, with long luxurious soaks in the mineral hot springs beckoning, regardless of the weather.
Take a scenic drive, or just hang out in town, soaking, shopping and relaxing the days away! Truly a great place to either celebrate the holidays, or just take a much deserved break, Ouray County is a welcoming escape.

Friday, August 17, 2012 through November 17, 2012 - OCHS Otto MearsExhibit
