Opening Day at PURGATORY is 11/19

historic-photo-11Preparation for 2016-17 Ski Season is in full swing.  It’s all hands on deck as crews at PURGATORY prepare for opening day on Saturday, November 19th.  A cooling trend and a light overnight snowfall at the resort this week has helped snow making efforts.

The NEW expert trail on the backside has been completely cleared with timber hauling and clean up over the next two weeks.  This NEW trail, located between Lift 5 and Lift 8, promises to offer incredible fall line skiing!

Crews have completed excavation work for the two NEW surface lifts on the backside of the mountain and are pouring concrete for the footings. These NEW lifts will take skiers heading west on the backside of the mountain over to the Legends Express Lift 8 high-speed quad that was installed last year.

Purgatory Resort offers Power Card, Power Pack and Power Pack PLUS—multi-day, multi-resort cards that give discounted lift tickets at these ski areas:

  • Purgatory (north of Durango, CO)
  • Hesperus Ski Area (west of Durango, CO)

  • Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort (Vadito, NM)
