The 2005-06 ski season went out with a bang last Sunday as locals took to the sun-drenched slopes at Durango Mountain Resort to celebrate the conclusion of another winter season. With a rush of fresh snow over the past few weeks, conditions were excellent as skiers and snowboarders carved up what was left of the ski season. In celebration of the last turns of 2006, locals combined their best 80s skiwear with their left over Snowdown apparel for a variety of unique fashion statements. Cold, frothy beverages flowed as fried turkeys were cooked on the deck outside Purgys. With the hopes that next year's ski season starts as this one ended, winter addicts can plan well ahead and pre-purchase their discounted all season pass from Durango Mountain Resort before April 29.
