Brian Martinez Skiing More Than 100 Days This Season – Purgatory Resort
On Friday, March 6, Durango resident Brian Martinez hit a total of 100 days skiing at Purgatory Resort near Durango, Colorado.
Martinez, who has been skiing at Purgatory since the 2015/2016 ski season, was awarded first chair access Friday morning on the Purgatory Village Express chairlift, and chose to take Chair #100 for the occasion.
Martinez has a total of 103 days for the 2019/2020 ski season.
When asked what makes Purgatory a special place to ski 100 days a season, Martinez stated the mountain, of course, but also the people. “(Purgatory) doesn’t have any attitude here,” said Martinez.
Despite hitting 100 days, Martinez still plans to continue skiing up until Purgatory’s scheduled closing day on Sunday, April 12.
