City: Snow removal a challenge

Ken Gallegos with the city of Durango loads snow into the back of a dump truck Wednesday as city crews remove snow west of Main Avenue on 24th Street. Durango received 42 inches of snow in December, nearly three times the historical average.
Chapman Hill now open for skiing

Herald Staff Report

Chapman Hill Ski Area opened this week with limited operations using the little rope tow.


The little tow operations will be from 5 to 7 p.m., and Durango Parks and Recreation Department expects to increase operational hours next week and to begin using both rope tows.


The cost to ski the hill during evening hours is $6 for adults and $4 for children. However, skiers can use the hill free during daylight hours.


Ski lessons offered by the Parks and Recreation Department will be listed in the Winter/Spring Activities Guide.
