Welcome to Purgatory Resort’s Online Media Room

photographer purgatory resort mediaPurgatory Resort is located in the rugged San Juan Mountains in Southwest Colorado, and 25 miles north of historic downtown Durango. Carved by glaciers thousands of years ago, Purgatory is a unique blend of steep tree skiing trails and wide-open cruisers with stunning views. Averaging 260 inches of snow annually, Purgatory is known for consistent, dry powder from frequent storms and followed by sunny, bluebird days which creates perfect conditions for pure alpine nirvana. Purgatory features over 1,635 acres of skiable terrain, 105 trails, 12 lifts, multiple terrain parks, and a vertical drop of 2,029 feet. Renowned as a family-friendly resort, there are many ways to enjoy the winter wonderland at Purgatory.

If you would like to be added to our media list, or if I can provide you with additional information or images, please don’t hesitate to email or call me.

As always, the best way to fully get to know everything about Purgatory Resort is to experience it first-hand. I hope to see you in our slice of heaven very soon!
