Purgatory Prices Can’t Be Beat

Retro Pricing at our Newest Gems Ski Area

DURANGO, COLORADO – Purgatory Resort, one of Colorado’s most family-friendly, affordable ski resorts, is pleased to announce lift tickets for the 2023-24 ski season are on sale now, with prices starting at $9.

Purgatory’s demand-based pricing represents an innovative strategy to manage the flow of visitors, enhance the overall skiing experience, and reward guests who plan ahead with the best deals.

“Our primary goal has always been to make skiing and snowboarding more accessible to everyone,” said Dave Rathbun, General Manager at Purgatory Resort. “By offering dynamic pricing, we’re not only delivering a great value but also a more enjoyable skiing and riding experience.”

Purgatory Resort’s 2023-24 ski season begins November 18, with capital improvements, resort animation, and exclusive discounts to enhance accessibility and enjoyment for passholders and guests.


2023-24 Season Highlights

  • Purgatory Resort joins the Colorado Ski Country USA Gems program for the 2023-24 winter season. The new Gems Parent and Teen Passes and the legacy Gems Discount Card offer affordable and flexible ways to discover new terrain, drop into the slopeside scene, and experience Colorado Ski Country USA the way it’s meant to be: authentic, laid-back, and free of crowds, lift lines, and hassles.
  • Significant investments have been made to enhance infrastructure and the resort experience for the 2023-24 ski season, including Phase II upgrades at Dante’s Lodge and Powderhouse, the addition of a second winch cat to the grooming fleet, completion of parking lot expansions begun last year, and new equipment additions to the Rental Shop including Burton snowboards and adult and kids ski boots.
  • Thanks to an array of new and exciting events and activities, like mountain coaster rides and snow tubing under the Columbine
    lights and live music sessions on the ski beach, Purgatory promises an immersive experience beyond just skiing and riding.
  • Exclusive discounts and deals will be available for both passholders and destination guests. Look for Purgatory’s Power Kids pass, reward programs like the Fun Fund, and multi-day FLEX lift tickets.
