Are you ready for another awesome winter season at Durango Mountain Resort!?!

Winter at Purgatory!


We are!

With such an incredible summer behind us, now we're all kicking into high gear to get the mountain ready for Mother Nature. We will be opening for the 2014/2015 winter season the day after Thanksgiving. Until then, you can still come up to the resort to enjoy the changing seasons, as we still have lodging available and the Village Market & Deli and Real Estate Showroom will also be open. Call 800.525.0892 to make your reservations.

See you soon & THINK (lots of) SNOW!
