Summer activity: Wonderful staff of young people, friendly and helpful, with a lot of kid and adult fun: zip line, alpine slide, food, drinks, shops. We weren't staying there, but we WILL next time!

We rented the Tacoma Vista home this week at DMR/Purgatory Resort. Tacoma Vista is a duplex house across the highway from the resort property. The house was fantastic, new, clean and very comfortable. Unfortunately, when you opened the back door to sit on the balcony, you were blown away by the highway noise all day and all night long. Large... More

Kids loved the activities! Alpine sled had great views at the top and was a fun ride. Kids enjoyed zip lining several times and the obstacle course. I had lunch and drinks at the outside bar. Great service by long time and local bar tender. Food was grilled outside and a great selection of draft beers. Price for pass was... More

Everything about the resort was very well run and organized. Although we just visited (June 2015), there were plenty of activities for everyone at the resort. The Plaza was the happening place as there are shops and restaurants there. We were here for a week (for a wedding) and didn't get to spend a lot of time at the resort,... More

Beautiful scenery and great summer activities. Stayed in the Elk Point condos which were gorgeous and in a perfect location for summer hiking or ski in during ski season.

Grandkids love the Alpine ride, the Bungee jump and the zip ride. All in a beautiful setting. We purchased the 5 ride pass which saved a little.

A beautiful mountain setting north of Durango, during the summer, one can get a ticket to ride the chair lift to the top for spectacular views...Some nice shops, a couple of restaurants, and in July, the Music In The Mountains festival at the resort is a must.

Staff is nice and very accommodating and the people are nice. Good for skiers and snowboarders and excellent service overall. Come early because parking fills up fast but it is pretty easy to...

Purgatory has always been a favorite of mine - I started skiing here some 15+ years ago while living in NJ and made annual trips here for 10 years before finally relocating to Durango full time. Purg will never be a world class resort (think Vail, Telluride, Breckenridge) but it's a pleasure to ski at a place that doesn't charge... More
