Winter Activities in Ouray
Lee's Ski Hill
It's small, but definitely one of the gems of Colorado skiing!
Located on 3rd Avenue near 4th Street, Lee's Ski Hill operates from noon to 5 PM on week-ends and Holidays, and after school during the week (from 3:30 to 5 PM). Skiers and snowboarders flock to Ouray's ski hill, especially after one of the famous San Juan Mountain storms leaves a wallop of new snow.
Consider bringing your family to spend a few hours on the slopes at Lee's Ski Hill, then enjoy soaking in the famous
Ouray Hot Springs Pool. Top it off with a visit to one of Ouray's great
Let the Ouray rope-tow bring you to the top of the slope, and then enjoy the 75 feet of vertical on the ride down. Be sure to pause and admire the scenery.
Days of operation vary depending upon snowfall, but generally the ski-tow is in operation from about December 20th until the middle or end of February. You can call the Ouray City Resources office (970) 325-7065 during regular business hours for information.
Skis and snowboards are welcome on Ouray's ski hill. Sleds and inner-tubes are not allowed. For sledding, visit Ouray's sledding area, Vinegar Hill.
