DURANGO, CO –Purgatory Mountain Resort will close out 2017 this weekend, loading bikes Saturday and Sunday, October 7 and 8. Purgatory will also celebrate Oktoberfest! Saturday with craft beer, great music, traditional German food and more.
Even though your social media feeds are starting to fill with powder pics from resorts already pushing ski passes, bike park season isn't close to over yet. Heck, summer isn't even officially over until September 21.
DURANGO, CO – Mountain Capital Partners (MCP) has named Hogan Koesis, formerly of Angel Fire Bike Park, as its new mountain bike director for its collection of resorts, including Purgatory Resort, Pajarito Mountain, Arizona Snowbowl, Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort and Hesperus Ski Area.
It's that time of year. Your social media feeds are likely full of autumn colors from riding camarades and at the same time, powder pics from resorts already pushing ski passes. But if you're like us, you're looking to get the most bike park laps possible before the lifts stop loading bikes. And with more bike parks than ever before operating long into October (and November), it's all time fall time for some of the best laps of the season.
DURANGO, CO –Purgatory Mountain Resort will host an "MTB Festival and Flow Trail Race" on Saturday, September 10 to celebrate the one-year anniversary of its Divinity Flow Trail. The celebration will include a cross-country ride as well as a race on the flow trail.
DURANGO, CO – With a history rich in mountain biking including hosting the first UCI World Mountain Bike Championships in 1990, and being located just outside the fat-tire destination of Durango, many have scratched their heads in recent years as to why Purgatory Resort didn't offer much in the way of lift-served mountain biking. Sure, you could load a bike on the chairlift and access cross-country trails, but there wasn't much in the way of an actual bike park or gravity offerings. But that's all about to change.
Enduro bike racing is the fastest growing mountain bike discipline in the world right now and the Big Mountain Enduro Series is at the forefront of this US movement, bringing you world-class courses with unparalleled big mountain descents.
Every bike park has something unique to offer. And we're out there getting the scoop as fast as we can. While we wish we could hit all the trails at once and give you the low down on all the riding across the land, we only have so many hours and days to cover so many bike parks.
If you have trail descriptions, videos and/or photos for this bike park, send them our way.
