As temperatures hover above freezing level and the snowpack turns to snowmelt, just remember: it’s never too early to start thinking of powder turns. Skiers and snowboarders looking to get through the summer without losing their sanity will be relieved to know that 2013/2014 season passes are now on sale at Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort.

Purchase your pass before April 27 for $619 (adults) and save $300. The winter pass provides unlimited skiing and riding (read: no blackout dates) and includes up to three free days at each partner resort next season, including Taos, Powder Mountain, Brian Head, Loveland, Sunlight, Powderhorn and Monarch Mountain.
