Columbine Area Opens Tomorrow!

The snowmaking temperatures have been fantastic, our snowmaking crew’s efforts have been relentless and we’re excited to announce that Purgatory will not only be open top to bottom tomorrow (see the video) but we’ll also be running the Graduate Lift and Columbine Magic Carpet!

Graduate and the Columbine Magic Carpet services one of our beginner areas, giving first-time and novice guests the opportunity to learn (or brush up on their skills) on terrain that’s perfect for them.

Don’t forget: you’ll need a lift ticket to access the Columbine area. Ticket prices are:

$30 for Columbine only
$59 for Adults (18-64)
$46 for Teens (13 to 17)
$39 (11 and 12)
$49 for Senior (65-79)

Discounted lift tickets are available online in advance here.
