The snow keeps on falling on our mountain town and it quite possibly may look the happiest it has ever been, which means it is the moment we have all been waiting for – it’s POWDER season in Durango! Whether you want to get your turns in locally at Purgatory Resort, or you plan on traveling a bit out of town this ski season to check out each mountain nearby, you can be sure that you will not be disappointed by some fresh POW. Be sure to tag us on Instagram and Facebook and use the hashtag #dodurango to be featured on our page! Go ahead, rub it in that the rest of us have to work and you’re shredding away on the mountain– we honestly would LOVE to see it!
Opening Day: November 27th
Purg is the word. Ready for laps of Blackburn’s Bash, Deadspike, Peace, and all your favorite runs? Same. The back side of the mountain just opened up and you can bet on a white Christmas, meaning more runs open and more terrain to explore! If you didn’t get a pass this year, don’t fret, just be sure to book your tickets HERE. Check out the snow report and winter webcams for the latest on fresh powder radar!

Heli Ski Season Open Day: November 24th
Guided Season: Dec. 26th - March 15th, 2020
Steep and Deep. To be clear, that’s 1,819 acres of steep and deep, the most expert terrain than any other skia area in North America. And you can drop in from a helicopter starting November 24th, with either single drops or a 6 Run Heli Day - it all depends on how much adrenaline you’re seeking out. If helicopters are a little much, then head up during the guided season.
