Default what to see Durango

Visiting Durango Co. for 1 1/2 weeks. For the first half I will be by myself so in that time I'm planning on seeing whatever I can. Are there any places/things to see/trails to go on (hiking or snwbrdng)/bars to attend/stores to check out that will make my time more enjoyable, while I'm there. Just need some opinions.

Checked online and it's all just Durango website visit me kinda places don't know if that's what I'm looking for.

I don't know a lot about Durango, I've only been there a few times but I used to spend 6 weeks a year in pagosa springs. If you have a day you should go board at wolf creek, Wolf Creek Ski Area - Ski Colorado! which is like 90 minutes awAy. Durango mountain resort is right by Durango obviously.... Wolf creek is by pagosa springs.... PS is a very small town with not much night life. There are some decent eats in town though and WC is pretty cheap with random $30 lift ticket days here and there. I like tequilas Mexican restaurant, right across the river from the hot springs. You can chill in the springs too, there's usually quite a few bikinis around since it's a day spa there too.

Down town Durango almost always had something going on when I was there in the night time.... Lots of people around and plenty of bar type places....

Try to head up to silverton too, cool old town. If your an advanced boarder you should ride there too.

At least one day, go visit Mesa Verde. It is about an hour southwest of Durango. It is totally worth it.

I've been to Pagosa/wolf creek a couple of times. My friend has a cabin up there. And i agree its pretty badass i love it there. Its part of the reason I'm moving to Durango. The springs are definately great, except for the freezing feet and hair. I haven't checked out tequilas yet but i highly suggest the restaurant Hogs Breath. Sounds weird but some of the best food i've had.
Checked out the silverton as well and I'm definately interested. Also Mesa Verde looks incredible I didn't know that was in Colorado, that is a must see now. But cool, thanks i appreciate the help. Open to more suggestions
