The climate of Durango (Colorado - United States of America)
Durango is a small city located in the southern part of Colorado in the vicinity of the border with New Mexico. Durango is located in La Plata County on the banks of the Animas River. The city was founded at the end of the 19th century on the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. The city is surrounded by the San Juan Mountains which are part of the Rocky Mountains. Durango Mountain Resort can be found in the vicinity of the city. This winter sports region has 85 pistes and 10 lifts. Mesa Verde National Park can be found near the village of Cortez which is located a few miles from Durango. This park where you can find Cliff Dwellings constructed by the Anasazi Indians is a Unesco preservation site. Durango has a cold steppe climate with long and cold winters. During the winter it may be extremely cold. Temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius (-4.00 degrees Fahrenheit) or even lower are not uncommon. Summers are relatively short and slightly cooler here than in the eastern part of Colorado. The winter sports region is located at a higher altitude and has a moderate continental climate. Temperatures are lower here all year round and most precipitation falls in the form of powdery snow.
