Surrounded by more than three million acres of National Forest and wilderness, Pagosa Springs is an idyllic mountain town in Southwest Colorado.
Our small town atmosphere combined with breathtaking beauty offers year round adventure and a great place to raise families, live and work, or retire. During the Spring season, the San Juan River swells and provides whitewater rafting and kayaking through town. With Wolf Creek Ski Area only 30 miles from town, Spring skiers and snowboarders flock to the “Most Snow in Colorado” atop Wolf Creek. In addition, our famous hot springs facilities provide year round relaxation in the world’s deepest hot springs.
The summer season offers a great backdrop to reconnect with friends and family with a myriad of activities. From hiking to fishing, biking to 4-wheeling, hot air ballooning to golfing, boating or paddleboarding, tubing to camping or simply just exploring the backcountry, you’ll find plenty to do in Pagosa Springs. Our charming shops and modern stores also provide everything you need from groceries to unique household items and gifts. Just outside of Pagosa Springs, you can also learn more about ancient Pueblo Indian ruins at Chimney Rock National Monument and Mesa Verde National Park.
During the winter, residents and visitors enjoy our infamous powder at Wolf Creek, endless snowmobiling and cross country trails and refreshing hot spring facilities. Pagosa Springs is more than a recreational paradise – it’s home. It’s a great place to raise your family, retire and be as busy or as remote as you want to be.
