Welcome to Purgatory Resort’s Online Media Room
Purgatory Resort is located in the rugged San Juan Mountains in Southwest Colorado, and 25 miles north of historic downtown Durango. Carved by glaciers thousands of years ago, Purgatory is a unique blend of steep tree skiing trails and wide-open cruisers with stunning views. Averaging 260 inches of snow annually, Purgatory is known for consistent, dry powder from frequent storms and followed by sunny, bluebird days which creates perfect conditions for pure alpine nirvana. Purgatory features over 1,635 acres of skiable terrain, 105 trails, 12 lifts, multiple terrain parks and a vertical drop of 2,029 feet. Renowned as a family-friendly resort and named in the top 10 “Best Ski Resorts in the U.S. and Canada” by Condé Nast readers, there are many ways to enjoy the winter wonderland at Purgatory.
