If you thought April 1 was closing day at Purg – April Fool’s. On Tuesday, the resort announced it will be re-opening 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Fridays – Sunday through April 15.

After that, it will be open Saturdays and Sundays through April 29. Sun., April 15 will also be a Locals Benefit Day with $45 tickets ($32/teens and $25/child and $32/senior) when bought 48 hours in advance at skipurg.com.

To help sweeten the deal, this weekend, the Bear Bar will be serving up a chance to win a New Belgium Fat Tire cruiser bike as well as a Jimmy Buffett theme, complete with beer-ritas on the beach (discounts for those in costume.) Discounted lift tickets are available online, season passes are valid, and weekday passholders can use their passes on April 6, 13, 21, 22, 28 & 29. For more info. on lifts and terrain, check our this Friday’s snow report.
