The Weekender // April 16th - 18th
Just like that, the weekend is back and we are here to help you make the most of it! Snow is in the forecast, yet again, and hopefully this is the last storm of the season! Before you put your ski or snowboarding gear in storage for the season, you might as well take advantage of Purgatory’s last weekend! It’s the perfect excuse to get outside like a true Durangatang we know you are. If you’re just completely done with this ski season and want to mix it up, put on your running gear and participate in the Stampede 10k fundraiser! Whether you want to go get some turns in, or you’d prefer to strap on your lightning-fast running shoes, you can also stop by Four Corners Riversports for their annual spring swap and pick out your new river-cruiser for the summer season.
Snow...and more SNOW! 10” Expected at Purgatory Resort… The Final Weekend of the Season @ Purgatory Resort - SATURDAY AND SUNDAY FROM 9AM - 4PM
While I know we all had a great season as always up at our local mountain, Purgatory Resort, this is the FINAL weekend to get some turns in! Don’t swap out your sticks for your paddles just yet-- 10 inches are expected to fall on the slopes over the weekend. Take advantage of the snowfall, it’s the perfect way to close out the season. Hang out on the beach and enjoy the band State 38 for a jam-session party!
