If you do some searches here you'll find previous info others and I have posted. Purgatory is not a mountain, it is a benched ridge. The steeper any section is the flatter the rest of the run will be. They have no sustained steep skiing, so it is not a mountain for experts. That being said, they have some of the best sunny weather and scenery in Colorado. If you like green and blue cruiser runs you should enjoy it. Also, they haved a decent terrain park. Silverton Mt. and Telluride are close by if you want something more challenging.
