PURGATORY RESORT - I stepped off the chairlift, grabbed my bike from the liftie and took a deep breath.

My God, the base village looked far away. My stomach dropped. A sense of dread gripped me. Was I squeezing the brakes way too hard?

Purgatory is one of a handful of Colorado Ski Country resorts that reopen for lift-served

new lift page
