Purgatory Ski Resort (now Durango Mountain Resort), Colorado


“Formerly known as Purgatory, many of the run names at Durango Mountain Resort were inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy, such as Demon, Hades, Styx, and Limbo. With 300 days of sunshine and 260 inches of snow annually, however, Durango Mountain belies the imagery created by its run names.”    —Go-Colorado (retrieved on September 15, 2006)
