Vanna, Pat may help boost Durango’s tourism during Dec. 31 episode of ‘Wheel of Fortune’

Participants on “Wheel of Fortune” will, once again, have a shot at winning a trip to Durango during the game show’s “winter expedition” theme week.

The “Durango Alpine Adventure” package is worth more than $3,000 and features a six-night stay for two at Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort, two days worth of lift tickets, a horse-drawn sleigh ride and free meals.

Winter expedition week is Dec. 31 through Jan. 4, and the Durango package will be featured Dec. 31.

This isn’t the first time Durango has offered a package to the show.

A prize featuring a stay at the Strater Hotel and free dining, along with rafting, a ride on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and other activities was featured about every month for almost three years.

North Dakota resident Jana Wisthoff finally won it in April 2011.

The Durango Area Tourism Office is working on offering a similar package that Wisthoff won.
