We booked a house, through VRBO, that is about 1/2 way between Durango and Silverton. I parked my trailer and Rangers in Silverton so I wouldn't have to drag it over two mountains each way.Have fun and stay safe! Please post a write up when you get a chance! This is where we would like to go next year... From speaking with folks that have went, you pretty much have to book it Jan 1st, as places fill up really quickly. Also, any hints, tips or suggestions for a future visitor would be greatly appreciated!
Pack warm clothes, face masks, gloves etc. The wind coming down off the mountains is cold. You might check with San Juan County and see how far Dave, the dozer driver, has made it. He was headed downhill from California pass but was only making a few hundred yards each day, but the snow should thin out as he goes down.Great pictures! Man I can't believe how much snow there is up high! We will be in Silverton in less than a month.
