As we near our opening date, we wanted to take the time to introduce you to the new and improved Durango Hot Springs. This is not your momma’s hot springs. Almost immediately you’ll begin to see big changes in the property once known as Trimble Hot Springs. We are investing in this campus and in the quality of your experience. We invite you to soak, sauna or enjoy a spa treatment during the construction of the new facilities and amenities.
A New Swimming Pool
The first thing new visitors will be greeted with is the upgraded pool. Gone is the old chlorine swimming pool, and in its place, guests will find a 90,000-gallon saltwater lap pool. In addition to switching out the chlorine for salt, the new owners have included a 25-meter, LED lane divided section for lap swimmers. The filtration has been upgraded to include an Aquagen Hyperdissolved Oxygen System to provide a boost of micro-oxygen bubbles. Though the new pool won’t be tapping the hot spring itself, it will still use the geothermals from the original spring to keep it heated year-round, a feat that was not possible with the old pool.
New Soaking Pools
Where once there were two, now there are three, brand new family-friendly soaking pools will tap into the hot springs that supplied Trimble’s original pair of old soaking pools. These new pools will also be fitted with the Aquagen Hyperdissolved Oxygen System, a system that not only helps disinfect the waters but also provides additional health benefits to soakers.
Although just the first three soaking pools are anticipated to be completed before we open, over the next five years, visitors will see a total of 22 pools ranging from 98 to 110 degrees. There are also plans to install a cold-plunge pool next to the hottest pool, dubbed the Lobster Pot. Most of the proposed new soaking pools will be built on the western hillside overlooking the property. We also intend to provide several Japanese Ofuro soaking tubs available to the public, as well as private tubs, located in the residential rental facilities.
A New Experience
In the past, a trip to the hot springs meant soaking and sharing a space with families, couples and individuals without much regard for privacy and relaxation. The new redesign provides spaces for privacy while also being able to host families or small events. The three mineral pools that are adjacent to the swimming pool are family-friendly pools. The 19 mineral pools planned for the hillside are intended for adult users, including six individual/couple soaking tubs. Another great upgrade is the Durango Hot Springs campus will feature 12 ADA accessible mineral pools, zero-entry access to the swimming pool, and all building access and walkways are designed to be ADA compliant.
A New Members Club
On the northern end of the grounds, we will create an all-new members-only space. The club will be dubbed the Trimble Hot Springs Club, in honor of the glamorous history of the hot springs facility, a history that includes film stars Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable. The club will feature a fire pit, private pools and more.
New Pass Options
The new Durango Hot Springs will offer a variety of ticket prices. Daily tickets will be $20 for adults, $12 for children ages 4 to 15 and $3 for 3-year-olds and younger. (A senior and military discount of 10% will be offered to anyone 62 years of age and older and to members of the armed services.) We are offering a Pre-opening Pass for $399, a 10-day Soak Card for $179, a seasonal pass for $499, and an Annual Pass for $699.
