Our Best, Guest-Approved Spring Events

Spring is off to a snowy start here at Purgatory and our lineup of events is kicking off. Thanks to daylight savings time, we’re able to expand our activities to take advantage of the extra sunlight. Speaking of daylight savings time, please note that our hours of operation have changed to 10:00am-5:00pm daily.

Here’s a roundup of our guests’ favorite ways you can get the most out of your extra hour of sunlight. We’ve got events and activities for every member of the family, so feel free to bring mom, dad, and the kids along for the fun.

Ski-Easter | March 24th
Come enjoy this family-friendly event with easter egg hunts for the kiddos, a chocolate station by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and free coffee and hot cocoa. Your little ones will love searching for eggs around the tubing hill area, while the big kids will have a blast exploring Animas City for the goods. Learn more.

Locals Benefit Day #4 | March 25th
Hit the slopes for less on Locals Benefit Day. Portions of ticket sales will directly benefit local Durango non-profits, while you get the cruise the mountain at a discount. Win-win. Tickets must be purchased online by March 23rd–spread the word! Buy your tickets here.
