It's not a place for Front Range day trippers, but if you're headed to school out that way...
Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort put its All-Season Pass on sale. It's $529 (savings of about $300) - kids $229 (as low as $119 when purchased with an adult pass). Weekday and Flex Passes also are on sale.
The All-Season Pass offers unlimited skiing and snowboarding and use of the Alpine Slide, mountain biking, hiking, 3 days at Taos and Crested Butte, 10 days at Kirkwood Mountain in California, 2 extra lift tickets for use before Dec. 25, mountain shop discounts, and discounted lift tickets for friends and family.
The resort is working with Silverton Mountain to sweeten the deal with 2 days of unguided skiing and snowboarding.
The sale runs through Sunday.
