Deep snow helps, but isn’t necessarily key for businesses

Purgatory ready to hand off snow to ranchers, rafters and the train
Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours owner David Moler said staffing levels are largely unchanged based on snowpack depth in the San Juan Mountains. “We can get creative (with light runoff). We use smaller rafts, we use inflatable kayaks, we change where we get in and out of the river. It’s part of being a business that’s dependent on Mother Nature.”
Purgatory Resort is enjoying a 50 percent increase in skier numbers this season compared with winter of 2017-18.
