I'm new to the area (i was in Durango for 11 years before) and am looking to find out where the good backcountry skiing is. Is anyone willing to give up the goods or willing to let me tag along. I'm on teles and am fully competent. I can ski weekends. I can also ski weekdays but it needs to be the sunrise skin up and be at work in GWS by 9. Anyone-anyone.

Mut,

What up. I lived in G-wood (now I just raft guide there in the summers) and now I am down in Durango. I went back to visit my parents for Thanksgiving and Sunlight was not open yet but the skining was great we had 24 freshes on Saturday and my buddy did it on Sunday and said it had three new feet. GO check it out. I think it opens this coming weekend. So get up there fast. Williams peak is another great place to go. It's located up 4mile road, a turn just before you get to sunlight you can find it on a map easily. Any help on Good places to go skining around Durango.

Kanpai,
Joe Bevins

joe,
I skiied sunlight on sunday and williams tommorow. the snow is good. Sunlight opens friday so that is over any williams seems to see lots of trafic.
As for good spots in Durango well I have a number of freinds who would kill me if i started posting spots online. But screw them they can hike a little farther if they want solitude. Go ski molas pass, it is alright to start with. Then go ski Deer creek. it is a little tricky to find the good turns but they are there, complete with a nice little 25 foot drop.

Have fun.

Pick up a copy. You'll run into people all over. McClure Pass is great.
The 4-mile area is greatly facilitated if you have a sled.
