Purgatory Adventure Camp for Kids - PACK Summer Activities at Durango Mountain Resort Colorado Call us at 800-525-0892


Hello from Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort and welcome to the online Media Room!

We are excited for another fantastic summer season! 

Durango Mountain Resort is a recognized as a top family-friendly, four-season resort.  When the snowflakes stop falling and the grass turns green, DMR is transformed into a place for summertime outdoor fun and adventure, with an alpine slide, zipline, scenic chairlift, hiking trails, mountain bike uplift and trails, climbing walls, ropes course, a bungee trampoline, miniature golf, hiking trails, horseback riding, disc golf and more!  Summers in Durango offer warm and pleasant, sunny days in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains.

And don’t miss the leaf-peeping opportunities when the San Juan Mountains are altered to a colorful canvass by Mother Nature herself and the days are filled with dry air, warm sunshine and crisp evenings.   Autumns at Durango Mountain Resort provide a serene backdrop comprised of brilliant golds, oranges, reds, yellows, and greens for your hikes, bike outings or relaxation between activities.
