Tickets FAQ

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about our lift tickets, activities and winter operations.

Q: When is opening day?

A: Our scheduled opening date is Saturday, November 20, 2021.

Q: What is your COVID-19 plan for the season?

A: There are no public health mandates for Colorado ski areas at this time. Purgatory will be compliant with San Juan Basin Public Health and/or Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment should any future mandates or orders go into effect.

Q: What is Purgatory’s window and ceiling ticket rate?

A: This winter, all lift tickets will be sold online and there will be no “window rate.” Tickets will go on sale in October, and a major goal of our pricing this season will be to help anticipate and spread out demand. On peak days, expect to see higher rates due to increased demand, and conversely, expect to see much lower pricing on weekdays and other non-peak time periods.

Q: Can I buy lift tickets at the window?

A: All lift tickets will be purchased online by the customer on their own device (just like last season). Guests will visit the ticket or rental/ski school counter to receive and activate a Purgatory Card that will house their complete reservation (less lodging). They can then proceed directly to the lift.

Q: What is the Purgatory Card?

A: The Purgatory Card is a reloadable, non-transferable medium. Learn more.

Q: Do lessons and rentals also have dynamic pricing?

A: We will not offer dynamic pricing on lessons and rentals. Quantities are limited for both lessons ad rentals, and we encourage you to book early, especially during the holidays.

Q: When can I purchase mountain coaster or tubing tickets?

A: We expect to put tickets for both activities on sale as we get closer to opening day.
