Durango boasts 'Music in the Mountains held each summer at the resort: festivals in the fall, chili cook offs, art galleries, darling boutiques and ample restaurants. Thanks to Ft. Lewis College in Durango there is a strong theatre, visual arts and music scene as well. If you still have energy, try some mountain biking, river-rafting, and kayaking or always free, rock hopping!

Winding down, take a family drive to explore the old mining towns of Silverton and Ouray. The mountain drive is easy and goes past waterfalls and amazing red mountains affording endless opportunities for budding photographers and professionals alike! Regardless of age or activity, if you love the great outdoors you will love the Durango area and your stay at Durango Mountain Resort!

About Steve & Toni Qualls

Back in the 70's we (Stephen & Toni) shared Durango family fun and the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad with our son and his Grandma Margaret. Little did we imagine our son and his wife would 're-discover' Durango and bring it back into our lives. We loved their East Rim Condo and fly-fishing on the mountain so much, we decided to get our own! We are excited to create new family memories with our 3 daughters & son, their wonderful spouses and our 9 beloved Grandchildren. We also look forward to our Guests enjoying the ambiance of mountain home that we are blessed to have. We fell in love with the interior charm right away (we've always dreamed of a log cabin)and the location makes it easy to play.

Steve & Toni Qualls purchased this condo in 2010

Why Steve & Toni Qualls chose Purgatory Resort

Too many things we love about Durango to fit into a little paragraph! Just to name a few: Ample places to explore for Fly fishing (how much gear do you have Steve???), wonderful walks along Hermosa Creek, the refreshing mountain air with morning coffee, superb selection of restaurants, BBQing on the mountain view patio, Great selection of Churches and downtown activities, the old cowboy mining towns of Silverton and Ouray (is that more than a few?)

What makes this condo unique

We are so wonderfully close to the slopes, lodge and village. Down our steps, and a few meters across the brave can ski right down to the bunny slope and transit lift area. 'Rule-followers' Ha Ha, have just a 2 minute walk right to the main lift area. We joined the DMMA, and pay an additional 8% that we include in our rates so our guests can also share in the enjoyment of the outdoor pool (heated in cool months, hot tub, well-equipped fitness center, tennis courts and valet ski check & Spa (the last two are optional and do have additional fees for us as well, however the DMMA key you receive at check-in gives you access to the areas).

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a wonderful condo, nicely appointed, very welcoming, and very accessible to lifts and mountain village. Jim loved that he had Direct TV "just like home" with record feature so we could follow our usual routine of taping Jay Leno and watching it over breakfast. I loved the availability of condiments, spices and basic cooking needs. I brought my own because I'm used to that, but it's a real plus to have them available and just replace what you use.All in all we give C24 an A+. We probably won't be back in Durango this winter/spring, but with the first snowfall next season we will look forward to checking in with you again. We will definitely recommend your rentals to our friends, as well.

Great condo on a great mountain!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Steve and Toni's condo and once again we loved it. We feel that this condo is a tremendous value for our ski trips to Purgatory. I've spent a lot of time researching condos at Purgatory and I don't think you will find a rental condo that is as spacious, comfortable, well decorated, and as close to the lifts at this price.The fact that Steve and Toni are so nice and accommodating is just icing on the cake.

Last year, my wife and I stayed in the downstairs bedroom and let our daughter have the loft. This year, we took the loft and we really enjoyed the extra space and the bigger bathroom. We found both beds comfy, so you can expect a good nights sleep either way. You can also pull the curtains in the loft to reduce the noise of the kids watching TV downstairs.

There are two couches and a large, comfy chair in the living room to relax in after a long day on the slopes. The kitchen had almost everything we needed and we didn't eat at the resort a single time in the eight days we were there. Nice grill on the deck that allowed us to have burgers and dogs a couple of nights.

The snow conditions weren't fantastic in the middle of February this year but the fact that it was nearly a ghost town during the week with no lines at the lifts more that made up for it. If you are considering lessons, spend the money for private lessons with Chip. He is phenomenal both for kids and adults. You will thank me later.

The comfort and value of this condo, along with the value that Purgatory offers as a family ski trip destination, will keep us coming back again and again.

Owner's Response: Chris, thank you so much! Of course you know that you are one of our favorite families that have stayed with us. We really worked to our "snow dance" moves this year, but so far the winter skies have been stingy. Maybe it is saving up for February - let's hope so. Also thank you for the nice words for the resort and about the ski instructors. I will pass this along to the ski school. We are keeping the light on for your next visit. Steve & Toni

Mountain home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Your home was perfect for the four of us. Watching the sunrise from the deck was beautiful every day. Great location to Durango and Silverton. Enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi right next door. Also rented a Razerback from next door. My brother had a blast driving that thing in the mountains.

Unfortunately the high altitude affected my husband, he had to be put on oxygen. So we had a few hiccups with the trip but we still managed to have a really great time.

Thanks again!!!

Bruce and Janette Fontaine
