Bike Park Opening Delayed for Summer 2021
The Purgatory Bike Park opening will be delayed this summer due to an unforeseen issue uncovered while performing 20,000 hour maintenance on the Purgatory Express (Lift 1). We are waiting on a replacement part to be air freighted from Europe. Upon arrival at the resort, we expect the new part installation and completion of the 20,000 hour maintenance project to take two weeks (weather permitting).
Based on the information we have, we expect the Bike Park to open in mid-to-late July. We look forward to hosting previously scheduled mountain bike events this summer and fall including the Big Mountain Enduro race and USA Cycling Collegiate Mountain Bike Championships.
Summer activities like the alpine slide and Inferno Mountain Coaster will open as planned on Saturday, June 19.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to ensure the safety and reliability of Purgatory Resort’s chairlift system for many seasons to come. We are committed to providing transparent, frequent updates on our social media channels as we receive additional information on the status of the Purgatory Express and an opening date for the Bike Park.
