Purgatory Snowcat Adventures
Purgatory Snowcat Adventures offers both snowcat skiing and scenic tours.
Enjoy the San Juans like never before — from the backseat of a snowcat! Whether you are looking for a unique skiing or snowboarding experience outside the ski area boundaries or want to enjoy the stunning San Juan Mountain views comfortably, Purgatory Snowcat Adventures has the perfect ride for an unforgettable experience.
Purgatory is home to Colorado’s largest snowcat skiing and snowboarding operation with access to 35,000 acres of powder. Located in the rugged and majestic San Juan Mountains, the resort is 25 miles north of the town of Durango. The terrain includes expansive bowls, steep trees, open cruiser glades, undulating gullies, and chutes. With so much accessible terrain, an average of 300-plus inches of snow annually, and consistent temperatures, untracked powder is available for weeks after the last storm. With the ability to move around to various aspects and elevations, guests can experience the best powder.
