Ski Areas > US Rocky Mountains > Purgatory, Colorado




  I was here last winter, the skiing was great. Says Jill.

Purgatory has a height difference of 2,029 feet which is in fact unbelievable. This ski mountain has so much snow, 22 feet every year, and that is one of the finest highlights of this ski mountain. Having the skiing land being 1,200 acres you won't be deficient in skiable terrain. Purgatory is a regular size ski resort having a drop that's roughly speaking average when compared to other US Rockies
    ski resorts. Purgatory receives an average amount of snow every season. This ski mountain has a much lower than average part of tough ski slopes and a much higher than average share of beginner and intermediate trails. The ski run
map on this web page will give you a good idea what Purgatory is like. All 11 great ski lifts at this ski hill are competently maintained and operated by pleasant people. The natural prettiness of the Colorado hills and excellent slopes are reason enough to come here to ski. This is a great ski mountain with lots of different runs; there's no way to get bored here. Purgatory has a fantastic array of trails and an acceptable total of lifts. This ski hill has  
85 runs that you could ski on; there are ample runs for every skill. Getting a little bit of great exercise and spending some quality time in nature outshines anything. Whether you're skiing or snowboarding, this neighborhood has a lot of ski mountains. This is a great place for young and old with many blue and green runs for beginners. The snow covered mountaintops of Colorado are a magnificent spot for skiing and snowboarding.
