Snowmaking for the 2020/2021 Season Begins!

Snow fell on the mountains around Purgatory Resort late Sunday night and into Monday. A dusting was visible from the base area, with the summit of the resort receiving a few inches. With the snow came colder temperatures, allowing the resort to begin snowmaking for the 2020/2021 ski season. 

“We will hopefully be making snow every night moving forward,” said Sam Williams, director of Mountain Operations.

The recent snowfall was a welcoming sight as the Purgatory team works to prepare the mountain for its scheduled opening day of November 21.
