Several of us would like to head to Durango and Purgatory for a ski weekend, taking advantage of a very good snow year. Purgatory currently has a very good 48" base, and is a special ski area thanks to the views of the peaks of the Weminuche Wilderness to its east. While the first few of us are downhill skiers, there are numerous snowshoe and cross-country opportunities around Purgatory, Molas Pass, and beyond. A Pajarito season pass (Power Pass Plus or New Mexico Power Pass Plus) is good for 3 free days of skiing at Purgatory. We will leave Los Alamos early enough on the morning of Thursday, January 28 that we can ski the afternoon; we will spend Friday and Saturday on full days at the ski hill. I will rent a house in Durango based on the size of the party; sharing a house or condo is consistently less expensive and more pleasant than a hotel or motel. My first choice for lodging location will be Durango town so as to take advantage of the restaurants and shopping, although we've found nice places also in the developments north of town. Please email me at bill at priedhorsky dot net if interested; I will be collecting a deposit to apply to the lodging rental.
