Ski lift

Weekend shredders need not stick their thumbs out along the cold highway this ski season in hopes of snagging a lift. The City of Durango, in partnership, will once again be offering a skier shuttle between town and the mountain. The shuttle, operated by Purgatory’s Transportation Services, offers round trips to and from the Durango Transit Center for $10 per person on weekends and select holidays.

On service days, the Skier Shuttle will depart Gate 4 at the Transit Center at 8:30 a.m. and will leave Purgatory Plaza for the return trip to town at 4:30 p.m. Skier shuttle fare can be paid in cash or you can buy a Skier Shuttle Punch Card at Purgatory Sports’ downtown location, 2615 Main Ave., or at the Purgatory Ticket Office.

Just like video killed the radio star, social media has put a hurtin’ on Silverton’s spectacular Ice Lakes Trail. One of the most popular – and most FBed and Insta-ed – trails in the San Juan Mountains, Ice Lakes is seeing even more unprecedented numbers of visitors this summer with the pandemic.

Not your dad's jorts

Leave it to the folks in Aspen to elevate even the lowliest of mountain wear to new fashion heights. Take the humble jort, a staple on local trails since, well, at least Chad Cheeney moved here in the ’90s.
