Purgatory Snowcat Adventures Start Mid-Jan!

Backcountry skiing and snowboarding has been gaining in popularity and with good cause. Providing access to untouched powder, amazing lines, incredible scenery, and no crowds, backcountry skiing is truly a special experience. Don’t have the gear? Don’t know where to safely go? Don’t want to slog uphill? Let Purgatory Snowcat Adventures take care of that for you!

A day with Purgatory Snowcat Adventures starts at Purgatory Resort at 8am. You’ll meet your highly trained guides who will select the best terrain based on your experience, interests, and the current conditions. With over 35,000 acres of light, untracked powder available there’s everything from trees, glades and open bowls of varying pitch to chutes, gullies, and cornice jumps. Get fitted for powder skis or boards and oriented with safety procedures before hitting the best spots in the incredible San Juan Mountains. 

A typical day provides an average of 8-10 runs and 10,000′ of vertical. Lunch is included as well as demo skis/boards, avalanche gear, and transportation to and from the backcountry as well as up the slopes.

Purgatory Snowcat Adventures offers an experience you’ll remember for years to come, so book today! Backcountry tours are offered daily beginning January 12, and single seats and private cat options are available.
