Welcome to San Luis Valley!

Visitors to the San Luis Valley are truly amidst the mountains. Covering two million acres (809,356 ha), with several peaks between 9,000 and 10,000 ft (2,700 and 3,000 m), this immense alpine valley extends south from the Continental Divide in central Colorado to New Mexico's state line. From hiking trails in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the numerous events at Great Sand Dunes National Park and the natural hot springs at Alamosa's Splashland, the San Luis Valley is fraught with possibilities for outdoor adventure. Sportsmen are attracted by the area's abundant and diverse array of wildlife, including elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep and several varieties of trout and salmon. In addition to miles of groomed cross-country and snowmobile trails, winter brings exceptional powder skiing to the Wolf Creek Ski Resort in the nearby Western Slope region of Colorado. For an offbeat attraction, the UFO Watch Tower in Hooper stands as a testament to the numerous saucer sightings in the area.
