Purgatory Resort by Colin McBeath, General Manager

Having just been at Purgatory for a little over two months I am seeing the resort at its busiest.  Everybody has been so welcoming and wonderful as I find my way around this vast and wonderful “mini city.”  From the long-term employees to the newest arrivals, everybody shares a common goal and that is to see Purgatory be the very best ski resort in Colorado, not the biggest or the most expensive but simply the best, and we are confident we will get there. 

 My family and I have started to take roots and purchased our home outside of Durango and in short we couldn’t be happier, living in Colorado has always been a dream of ours and each day we have the opportunity to live that dream. 

Like many resorts, Purgatory has seen a wonderful snow pack this year which has led to fantastic season that is being stretched into April.  We entered the spring season with plans to enhance a number of operations on the mountain, including improved lodging amenities and more extensive offerings in our Food and Beverage outlets next season.  Our commitment to improving our already excellent service culture will further be improved with internal training programs to provide our employees with advanced training in a number of areas.

In the meantime, we have had a number of employees celebrate anniversaries this year.  We are so fortunate to have these long tenured employees. They bring forth a vast experience of Purgatory and continued wonderful attitude that makes Purgatory such a fantastic place to live, work and play.  Congrats to these folks.  And many thanks to you for a fantastic season!
