The Power Pass Family Adds Another Colorado Ski Area!

Earlier today, James Coleman, managing partner at Pajarito and our collective of ski areas, announced the addition of Hesperus Ski Area (located 11 miles west of Durango in Hesperus, CO) to the Power Pass family. This is fantastic news for not only our passholders but for everyone who enjoys skiing in the Southwest! Here are just a few reasons why:

Power Pass holders now enjoy unlimited access to night skiing. Located south of Purgatory and just minutes from downtown Durango, Hesperus is the only resort in our collection of ski areas to offer night skiing (evening operations extend until 9:00 p.m. Mondays – Saturdays). It’s no secret that our managing partner, James Coleman, is all about making skiing more accessible for everyone. This mountain allows anyone in the Four Corners area to ski all day at Purgatory and then well into the night at Hesperus.

Plus, in addition to its 26 trails, Hesperus is only the second mountain in our Power Pass family to offer tubing!

New Mexico Pass PLUS and New Mexico Pass holders now have unlimited access to Colorado skiing. Not only do these passes allow you to ski or ride everyday at Pajarito and Sipapu, but you can now have unlimited access to Hesperus, too!

The marketer in me can’t help but point out that our season passes are on sale through September 30. For the lowest available pricing, purchase your pass online here! Also, payment plans are still available now through November 15!

Hesperus will also join the Power Pack and Power Card – if you know you want to ski but aren’t ready to commit to a pass, be sure to check out these discount cards, available for purchase at our ski shows!

We’ve been busy getting ready for Opening Day. On the mountain, crews are finishing up routine maintenance and training in preparation for our November 25 opening. The lodge, deck and railings have received a fresh coat of Pajarito blue paint. We hope you’ll join us on the deck for Ullr Fest on October 1st to celebrate the coming of winter.
