The Entrance to the base of Purgtory Resort, which opened to skiers and snowboarders Nov. 18.

 

On opening day at Purgatory, lift one transported riders to the only section open on the upper mountain. 

 

Two Fort Lewis College students ride up lift one.

 

FLC junior, Stefan Rozanski, slides a box at one of Purgatory's terrain parks.

 

Lift two brings riders back up to the top of the mountain. 

 

The Powder House restaurant below lift two.

 

Looking at the Needle Mountains from Purgatory highlights Durango's lack of snowpack. 

Stay tuned to The Independent for more winter sports coverage.
