Snowmaking & Better Tree Skiing

Purgatory’s snowmaking system is being enhanced to make snowmaking more productive and efficient. And a hazard tree mitigation project will vastly improve the health of the forest, as well as enhance tree skiing at the resort.

New Lift & New Trail

A new T-3 surface lift on the backside of the mountain will transport skiers heading west to the Legends Lift 8 high-speed detachable-quad chairlift, which debuted last winter. The T-3 lift will also connect a new trail to the Legends Lift 8. The Legends Bypass, which opened last winter as an alternative way down to Lift 8, will be widened and re-graded. These improvements will offer skiers a more gradual and user-friendly trail to access Lift 8.  Work on the new lift, new trail, and Bypass will begin in September.  View a map of the new trail and location of the new T-3 Lift.
