How it Works

Guests meet at the main Purgatory Ticket Office no later than 4:30p to pick up their tickets and will then be directed towards the Beach in front of Purgy’s Restaurant. Guests will see the snowcats pull up to the Beach area between 4:30p and 4:45p. Please allow the snowcats plenty of room to park and do not begin boarding until your operator has checked your ticket and given you permission to board. The excursion will depart at 5:00p and return around 9:00p.
