Welcome to FLC—where your education is an adventure!

Hey, Class of '24! Kick off your first year at Fort Lewis College with a thrilling bonus – a FREE Season Ski Pass to Purgatory Resort and Hesperus Ski Area, compliments of Mountain Capital Partners! If you're joining us as a full-time, first-year student in Fall 2024 or Spring 2025, the snowy slopes of Durango await.

Seize the slopes

Stay tuned post-Census date for details on claiming your pass and carving memories in the mountains. Remember, full-time status is confirmed after the Census date, so keep those grades and attendance high.

Purgatory will provide season ski passes to first-time students at FLC, good for use at Purgatory Resort and Hesperus Ski Area. Eligibility requires the following:  

  • Student must be a first-time (have not attended FLC previously), first-year (“freshmen”), full-time student (taking 12 credits or more by the Census date, the 12th day of each semester) starting in Fall 2024 or Spring 2025 
  • The pass may only be used for the assigned student and cannot be sold or given to another person. If the pass is used by anyone other than the person it is issued to, it will result in the termination of lift/pass privileges and could compromise this offering for future students.  
  • FLC will notify all potentially eligible students (incoming first-year students) after Census date of their incoming semester on how they may pick up their pass when it is time to do so.

With FLC's Outdoor Pursuits, your adventures aren’t just confined to the slopes. Borrow gear, fix your own, or join group outings – all free! Whether it’s backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, or mountain biking, we've got your back!
