Skiing & Riding

Purgatory Snowcat Adventures offers a full day of powder-filled skiing or snowboarding in the San Juan backcountry.

Your day of snowcat skiing or snowboarding includes avalanche gear, lunch and water (bringing your own water bottle is recommended). Morning orientation begins at 8:00 am in the Purgatory Snowcat Adventures office located in the plaza. Our highly trained guides will make an assessment of up-to-date snow conditions and skier ability to choose from three primary zones in our 35,000 acre terrain area. Skiers must be comfortable skiing black diamond runs consisting of deep powder, tight trees, steep pitches and unmarked hazards.

With exceptional views of the Northern and Southern San Juan Mountains all to yourself, this will be a day of skiing you won’t soon forget!
