Siesta Motel. During their trip, one of the members fell into the swiftly flowing Animas River somewhere near site of the ski area and perished into its waters. The ski area was the idea of Chet Anderson who worked for the Forest Service and Ray Duncan whose family was in the oil business. The two were avid skiers and wanted to make the sport more accessible to the Durango area. Hermosa Park was selected as a potential ski area location after snow depth studies were conducted. By January of , plans were made public on the intentions of constructing a ski area at Hermosa Park. Appropriate permits and designs were carried out the following summer.
The first phase of development included over half-million dollars in construction, including a new double chairlift from Riblet. During December of , the two partners created the Durango Ski Corporation. Ray Duncan assumed control of the new company, while Chet Anderson became general manager and eventually operations manager. Local residents of Durango were offered seventy thousand dollars in stocks, which involved local residents in the financing of the ski area. The summer of was cold, rainy and at times snowy. This slowed down construction greatly.
The trails, lift and lodge were eventually completed by late fall and the opening day was set for December 4th, For the first season, the area boasted a 1, foot vertical drop, one double chairlift and a few trails. Purgatory hosted its grand opening on January 8th, The Riblet chairlift was christened by Ann Love, a possible first for lifts!

In , additional expert terrain was cut and the Grizzly lift was installed back on the ridge to the west of Engineer. Two years later, Poma of America installed the Needles chair, which paralleled the original Riblet double.
