Purgatory Resort will reopen for summer activities July 2 and lodging accommodations will reopen June 29.
The resort was forced to temporarily suspend its operations during the 416 Fire.
“While it’s been a challenging month of June, we’re excited to open again and offer our guests a great experience at Purgatory Resort,” said Elizabeth Howe, director of operations for Mountain Capital Partners and Purgatory Resort. “We’re looking forward to our employees returning to the resort and welcoming back our guests.”
Additional details about Purgatory’s operating hours, summer activities, restaurants and shops that will be open will be released next week, said Kim Oyler, the resort’s director of communications, in a news release issued Thursday.
“Over the course of the next week, we’ll be getting the resort ready for the public, contacting employees, ordering supplies and ramping up our operations,” Howe said.
“In addition, we’re actively working with the Forest Service on what activities Purgatory will offer guests beginning in July. We’re acutely aware that dry conditions continue to exist, and we’re committed to being good stewards of the environment.”
The San Juan National Forest is currently under Stage 2 fire restrictions, which prohibit smoking outside, campfires, charcoal grills and more.
“Purgatory is very grateful to the first responders, firefighters and 416 Fire management team for all their efforts in battling the wildfire,” Howe said. “We appreciate everything they are doing to keep our community safe.”
