Pagosa Springs, Colorado is a refreshingly authentic small town located in Southwest Colorado. Pagosa's claim to fame is the system of sulfur springs located there, including the world's deepest geothermal hot spring.
The mother spring feeds the hot spring soaking pools located along the San Juan River that runs through the heart of downtown. It's here where you can find The Springs Resort & Spa, named one of the top hot springs in the world
by Travel and Leisure! There's also several primitive hot springs you can easily hike to such as Piedra Hot Springs
and Rainbow Hot Springs
Pagosa Springs is an hour east of Durango, Colorado and only thirty minutes to the west of Wolf Creek Ski Area
, home to the most snow in Colorado. Surrounded by five million acres of National Forest, Pagosa is one of the more remote towns in Colorado with the Continental Divide surrounding this area.
Don’t be fooled. Pagosa is anything but a one dimensional ski town. It truly has something to offer everyone, no matter the season. Once spring hits, the snow melt is on! Time to grab your paddle, jump in a raft, and experience the engineered rapids
throughout town. Once the river calms in June, it's the perfect time to catch a trophy rainbow trout on the end of a fly or perhaps a lazy day of tubing is more your speed?
Summer overall in the San Juan's is absolutely magical. Out of town guests escape unbearable temps in their hometown and replace it with our moderate temperatures followed by cool night's in the lower 50's. This is the perfect recipe for camping
, trail running
, and mountain biking
If that’s not enough, mother nature holds a party of transformation starting in September. Amateur photographers flock from near and far to experience the glory of the changing Aspens. Peak season to capture this amazing transformation is usually in early to mid October. Life slows down a bit from there and everyone is eager for the snow to start falling again. And so this magical cycle of fun and adventure starts all over again.
Pagosa is home to a little over 2,000 full-time residents. The population fluctuates wildly with many second home owners and tourists visiting during the summer and winter. Pagosa has a high school
, a middle school
and an elementary school
. There's a special emphasis in quality of life with the education system here given the unique opportunities this area offers.
