Full review

My visit to Durango/Purgatory last week was sandwiched between what turned out to be epic days at Telluride and Silverton Mountain. I just wasn't expecting to have as much fun there as I did. The runs at Durango are just plain fun. There is a playfulness about them with many bumps and rolls and terrain changes. I especially liked our runs down Snag and Styx and also the tree run through McCormack's Maze.

Overall, it was a great day of skiing!
