We know the saying is, “no friends on a powder day,” but you’ll likely want friends once the lifts have closed and you’re ready to share details about your sends. Backcountry Gourmet is the best spot to replenish and recount. You’ll find this food truck permanently stationed at two separate locations, and both serve up a concise, curated menu with sliders, salads, soups, and sides. One location is at The Nugget Mountain Bar about a mile south of Purgatory Resort that’s great for an apres-ski or apres-mountain bike bite, and the other is in downtown Durango within the 11th Street Station, a former auto repair shop that’s been turned into a food truck collective. 

Order their pork belly sliders, plus a side of fries with your preferred seasoning choice, and grab a seat on the patio or inside the bar at either location. If you’re looking for a quick morning bite prior to hitting the mountain, the 11th Street Station location also offers delicious (and massive) breakfast burritos from 8-11am.
