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.

Introducing the world’s first “action sport jort,” made with technical fabric to bring that “I-give-zero-effs” attitude to any outdoor adventure while supplying that all important stretch and secret anti-chafing properties to the underside.
