    Double Diamond Real Estate Purgatory's only Ski-in/Ski-out single family neighborhood... Right on the slopes with mountain views made in Heaven

    We are pleased to introduce you to one of Purgatory Resort’s most exclusive neighborhoods – Double Diamond Estates. Double Diamond features the only true ski-in/ski-out homesites that will ever be available at Purgatory Resort.

    These beautiful homesites are located at just the right place to build your family memories. Ski right to your back door, then take a short walk to all the activities in the base village. At the end of the day, you can retreat to your home nestled in the pines and enjoy a quiet evening while overlooking the alpenglow on the Needles Mountains.

    Imagine the great experiences your family will enjoy in your very own custom-built single-family vacation home right at the base of the slopes, with the kids just a short walk from the great activities and amenities of the Durango Mountain Club and Purgatory’s main village.

    Double Diamond Estates will allow you to experience a lifetime of great vacations and recreation…and one day pass a legacy on to your children and grandchildren. And if the time may not be perfect for your family to build a vacation home now, you can purchase a homesite without any obligation to build right away…and wait until the time is right and your dream home’s design has been totally perfected.

    Please visit First Tracks Durango for more information on these exclusive lots.
