New this season, Durango Mountain Resort will add more snowmaking equipment to the front side of the mountain.

By adding more equipment to the front side of the mountain, Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort will improve its ability to provide top-to-bottom skiing from the Purgatory Village Express, the six-person high-speed chairlift.

They’ll be adding 16 new energy-efficient snowmaking tower guns along with a state-of-the-art, high-output fan gun and two new snowcat grooming machines. The idea being the mountain operations team can be more efficient during the early season and help establish a solid base that can last the entire ski season.
