The Springs Resort also purchased a few weather sensors for Pagosa Weather this month.  Those weather stations are giving us valuable information in data sparse areas.  The Springs will have their own weather sensor set up soon.  We look forward to finally having data from downtown!  Thank you, Jesse, TJ, and the rest of the team at The Springs Resort.

I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!
