progressive horseback trips

because of the vast size of our permit area western sky outfitters is one of the few outfitting businesses in the weminuche with the ability to take a progressive horseback trip between our permitted camp locations. these trips are either 3 or 5 days and start just north of durango and end near purgatory ski area. this is a unique trip where you will travel to a different camp location each day and see all the wilderness has to offer.  there is also the option to be picked up by the durango silverton railroad on the last day of the trip and ride back to durango.                              3 day trip $2450pp 5 day trip $3250pp
