Purgatory’s Suspended Operations Extended Two Weeks
Resort officials announced Purgatory Resort operations remain suspended after Governor Polis amended his executive order directing Colorado’s downhill ski resorts to extend their closure by two more weeks through April 6.
Purgatory’s general manager, Dave Rathbun said, “Everyone at Purgatory wants to say ‘thank you’ to all of our local healthcare professionals for their long hours and dedication to keeping our community healthy and well-informed. Operations will remain suspended at Purgatory until we can consider reopening without exposing our staff or guests to COVID-19,” Rathbun said.
Resort staff are working directly with guests to rebook, credit or refund components of their reservations from March 15 through April 12. Rathbun said the resort is experiencing heavy call, email and social media volume and urged patience as the staff responds to all inquiries. “We are core skiers and snowboarders at heart and remain hopeful there can be a few more days on the mountain before this season officially ends,” Rathbun added.
