Something for Everyone at Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort:

Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort has long been known as a fun-family destination for skiers and snowboarders in Southwest Colorado, and now the secret is out.

One of only two resorts selected from Colorado, Purgatory is hailed for its rolling steps that are roller-coaster fun, but never intimidating. For the complete article featuring Durango Mountain Resort as one of the "7 Great Mountains to Ski With Your Kids," check out the November 2007 edition of Ski Magazine.


If that wasn't enough, Durango was named in the January 2008 edition of Ski Magazine as "One of the Next Best Places to Ski, Live, Invest and Retire." Only seven resorts from North America were selected for this elite list of up-and-coming destinations; and Durango was the only Colorado town chosen. Durango Mountain Resort was also named as a hot spot to buy real estate in the Market Report and one of the Top 20 Ski Resorts in North America in 2007 by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine.

Durango Mountain Resort has been the recipient of many honors and accolades. Snow Country Magazine ranked it "the second-least-crowded ski area on the continent." It's long been known that the San Juan Mountains with its majestic Needles and La Plata Ranges jutting up around the resort provide views compared more commonly to the Alps than the Rockies. Jean-Claude Killy called it "the most beautiful scenery this side of the Italian Alps." In a recent SKI Magazine readers poll, Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort gets picked as #1 for best weather among North American resorts!


Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort can also entertain the summer visitor with many different activities such as the alpine slide - great fun for the whole family. For those more daring souls, try mountain biking down the mountain after a scenic chairlift ride to the top. Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort hosted the Durango World Cup July 11-15th of 2001 and hosted the World Mountain Bike Championships in 1990. Visitors are invited to ride the chairlift for free, then explore the top and hike or ride the lift back down. There is a small fee to ride the chairlift for mountain biking and the alpine slide but it is definitely worth the experience.
