Get your tickets!

Lift tickets are available online through our ticket calendar. The earlier you buy, the better price you’ll receive. Prices go up with demand and as the date grows nearer. They will be most expensive day-of at the ticket window, so what are you waiting for!?

Pro Tip: Look for dates indicated in green on our ticket calendar. These are “Fun Fund” dates and you get $20 in resort credit per person per eligible day for tickets purchased at least 24 hours in advance during these windows. Use your credits toward food, souveniers, additional lift tickets, and more!

Plan your spring break lodging!

Purgatory lodging is located right at the base of the ski area

Stay close to the action when you book your stay at Purgatory Resort. Most of our accommodations are just steps away from the base area and the ski lifts. Whether you’re looking for a cozy studio for your couples’ getaway or need a townhome for the whole family, Purgatory has the perfect lodging solution for your vacation.

Pro Tip: Keep an eye on our Specials page to find great deals when you plan ahead!

Reserve lessons and rentals

Whether you’re brand new to the slopes, would like a refresher or want to switch it up from skiing to snowboarding, spring is a great time to hit the trails with an instructor.

Lessons are also an excellent way to learn more about the mountain — from navigating the frontside and backside runs to exploring the unique variety of terrain Purgatory has to offer. Our instructors are highly trained and extremely knowledgeable of the area, and they will make sure you hit the slopes with more confidence than ever.

Get ready to use those fun funds you earned!
