by Purgatory Snowcat Adventures

With access to over 35,000 acres of expansive terrain in the San Juan backcountry, Purgatory Snowcat Adventures (formerly San Juan Untracked) is Colorado’s largest backcountry skiing & snowboarding operation.

Experienced guides help identify perfect lines and navigate the expansive terrain, including wide open bowls, steep trees, rolling cruiser glades, undulating gullies, cliffs and chutes. Runs vary in steepness and skiers or riders must be comfortable in deep powder and tight trees. Your day of snowcat skiing or snowboarding will be unforgettable.
