Full review

I used to ski Purgatory as a kid in the 80’s and have some of the best childhood memories of this place. Now, 35 years later, brought my kids and they love it as much as I did back then. We came at the end of March, and it was cheaper for us to fly out here and ski for 4 days than it would have been for us to drive to Mammoth and ski for 4 days. Great value! No lift lines! Friendly staff. My daughter wants to make it an annual trip.
