Pagosa Springs is located in the Southwest corner of Colorado, against the San Juan National Forest, and only 35 miles north of New Mexico. Pagosa Springs is named after, and most famous for, the natural hot springs located in the area. Pagosa Springs has a small but eclectic “downtown” area along Pagosa Street, with restaurants, bars, boutiques, antique shops, galleries, and theatres.

Pagosa Springs is a popular destination in the winter for skiing and other winter sports. Summers are known for outdoor adventure in the nearby national forest.
  • HOT SPRINGS

    Pagosa Springs is the home to the world’s deepest geothermal hot springs. Within town, there are three hot springs resorts. The largest is The Springs Resort & Spa, followed by Healing Waters and Overlook Hot Springs.

  • SKIING

    Pagosa Springs is 24 miles from one of Colorado’s best small ski areas, Wolf Creek. The ski area is best known for getting more snow than any other resort in Colorado. Many tourists ski during the day at Wolf Creek and then stay in Pagosa Springs and enjoy the aforementioned hot springs. The area offers plenty of other winter activities, including snowshoeing, cross country skiing, sledding/tubing, ice fishing, ice skating, sleigh rides, and snowmobiling.

  • SUMMER

    Pagosa Springs is also popular in the summer, when outdoor enthusiasts visit to play in the San Juan Mountains. The natural playground offers opportunities for camping, hiking, biking, boating, fishing, hunting, and rock climbing.

THE WEATHER
  • Winters are cold with a lot of snow. Nighttime temps drop into the single digits. Winter is a very popular season for visiting. Travelers enjoy winter sports by day and hot springs by night.

  • Spring is the off season once Wolf Creek closes in April. The weather is too warm for winter sports and too cold for summer exploring.

  • Summers are beautiful and sunny, with daily high temps in the low 80s. Summer is a very popular time for tourism.

  • Early fall is a decent time to visit, because of the foliage. Late summer / early fall is the wet season.
