We stayed here before and after our hut to hut mountain bike trip (via San Juan Hut Systems). The resort had plenty to do and see. There were plenty of families and groups of families. I wish that I had taken more advantage of the downhill mountain biking. The condos were clean and well stocked. The only thing that the... More

Family had a great time, and we would go back again any time. Plenty of mountain activities to keep everyone happy. Kids really loved the alpine slide and hiking the ski runs.

This is the perfect family, summer getaway! Been coming up here for 3 years now to escape the Texas heat. Always cooler up here than the town of Durango. Easy to get to Silverton and Ouray and nearby trails and lakes. The best part is the quiet, small environment here....perfect for our tweens to walk around the base area and... More

Just got back after spending the week. I was worried after reading the reviews about the issues with the summer activities. My son enjoyed them over 2 days with little or no waiting. He did several activities over and over. Our one bedroom was perfect for the three of us. We enjoyed the resort to the fullest. It was very... More

I bought my kids and I the summer value ticket earlier today. We were all so excited!!! We purchased the pass (5 rides) at 1:00. We didn't even come close to getting 5 rides on the alpine slide in 4 hours because the thing was so poorly managed! Such a disappointment!!! We were only driving through, so it was a... More

The alpine slide is a must do. The zipline was fun, but a long wait. The ropes course is a lot harder then it looks. The miniature golf uphill was challenging. Panning was loads of fun, finding loads of treasures.

Purgatory was the former name and still used by the locals...A beautiful spot with wonderful mountain views in all directions...In the summer, ride the gondola to the top, take the mountain slide down, have lunch or ice cream and check out the shops during your visit...In July, the annual music festival, Music in the Mountains, has its tent up -...
