Purgatory Resort is well known in Durango for its plethora of winter activities, but did you know there’s a full set of activities for summer fun, as well? It’s a place you can stop for a little while, the full day, or longer!
The Alpine Slide is a longtime favorite—visitors can ride the chairlift to the top and take in the beautiful Colorado views, then slide down the track at your preferred speed. If the slide doesn’t appeal, the scenic chairlift ride offers a round-trip option. There’s nothing like the site of the summer views of the mountains! There’s also a new ride—the Inferno Mountain Coaster. Two guests can ride at a time, and you control the speed on this mountain coaster.
The Purgatory Bike Park offers over 400 miles of backcountry singletrack for mountain biking. Riders can access the backcountry by chairlift. It’s even got great trails for kids! We have some of the best mountains in the world, and this is a fantastic way to enjoy mountain biking in our own backyard.
There are a variety of other activities, such as the ropes course, a zip line, treasure panning, the gyro chair, bounce house, and mini golf. With lodging, shopping, and food options, it’s a full resort. The entire family can enjoy summer at Purgatory, and it’s an easy and beautiful drive from Downtown Durango. If you’re coming to Durango, you can’t miss a visit to Purgatory. Take a look at their website for details and information: https://www.purgatoryresort.com/
