Locals and neighbors have been concerned about the most recent fire burning 7 miles north of the town. We will do our best to keep you updated

With many of our owners not living in the Pagosa Springs area, it can be frightening to hear of the local plumtaw fire, hopefully the following information will help keep you all well informed.  I have found that the Pagosa Sun is updating the most frequently.  Here is a link to the most current update of the fire:

Attention Fellow SnowHomies!

The past few weeks have been quite dry in Pagosa Springs, but luckily we are able to escape to the mountain where there is always a place for fun!

Our local ski resort has been blessed with 27 inches of fresh snow in the latest storm leaving us 13 inches of fresh pow in the last 24 hours. Blue skies are upon us today, resulting in powder packed and extensively groomed bluebird conditions. Year-to-date snow fall is currently residing at 251″

Wolf Creek Pass is located approximately 24 miles South East of Pagosa Springs in the beautiful San Juan mountains. A 30-40 minute drive from your new potential home! If you are looking to buy a home in Pagosa and start living the mountain life or continue your journey here, Wolf Creek is a perfect place to dip your toes (or edges) into some fun and experience an exciting life here.

If your family is new to skiing/riding and you are looking to have an out of body experience, Wolf Creek offers group or private lessons and rentals at an excellent price. Check out their website wolfcreekski.com to plan a trip.

This Sunday, February 6th Wolf Creek will be hosting a special event: A Fun Race! Race your friends or just challenge your own fastest time. Free and open to skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. Sign up is from 9:30am to 10:30am in the Raven’s Nest building and the race is from 11am to 1pm on Charisma run.

If you are looking to buy a home in this sweet little town, make sure to check out the properties we have available on our website. Becoming a local has its benefits, such as access to local day rates at both Wolf Creek Pass and the Hot Springs located on the river through town. We have a lot of fun out here, and you could too! Make sure to tie in both of those places to your visit to get the full experience of winter in Pagosa. All four seasons are a blast!

Make sure to check back next week for more events and updates here in beautiful Pagosa.

Giving Trees – Gifts Needed!

NextHome Rocky Mountain Realty & Rentals is doing Giving Trees in Pagosa Springs again this year! Each Giving Tree will have tags with Luke (that Orange Dog) on them, so they are easy to find.

Auction For The Animals

First Ever Virtual Auction For The Animals

For the past 25 years, the Humane Society of Pagosa Springs has hosted an annual live “Auction For The Animals” to help fund our local animal shelter. With current restrictions involving in-person gatherings, however, things are going to be different for 2020…

In lieu of a live auction, the Humane Society has decided to move the bidding online! Items in this auction range from smaller items such as gift-cards and art pieces, all the way up to a Kilimanjaro climbing trip, and even a four wheel drive F150 pickup! You can also choose to donate money for food, microchips, vaccines, spay/neuter costs, or even emergency medical expenses.

This auction is a wonderful way to support your local Humane Society and animals during these uncertain times.

If you would like to register to bid, or just make a donation, you can visit the Humane Society auction page here. You can also see the dogs and cats available for adoption at the links provided.

Thank you for supporting these animals in need!

Archuleta Virtual Fair

Archuleta County Virtual Fair and Livestock Auction

2020 has been a difficult year for most. With public events being restricted left and right, it’s become increasingly difficult to safely execute them.  The Archuleta County Fair Board had to think outside the box to make the 69th annual county fair happen.

Faced with Colorado in-person meeting restrictions, they decided the best thing to do was move the shows, and 4-H livestock auction, completely online.

All shows are open to immediate family members only, but you will be able to watch the livestock shows and bid in the auction from the comfort of your home!

The livestock show live-stream links, as well as the auction link can be found here: Virtual Fair & Auction

Fair begins Thursday, July 30th, and the auction will take place on August 1st at 6pm. These 4-H’ers have put months of hard work into their animals and would appreciate your support during this transitional time!
