Durango, Colorado’s Purgatory Resort is a favorite for Southwestern skiers and snowboarders. Whether you’re just hitting the slopes for the fist time, or heading straight to that powder stash in the trees, this mountain is heaven for locals and visitors alike.

Purgatory is becoming a shredder’s household name for its many terrain parks. We spent a day chasing some of Purg’s park staff around the hill and even to some mischievous secrets in the woods to see just how much fun this mountain really is.
