Pajarito is a great family friendly area. Easy to get to from Santa Fe or Albuquerque. The West side has lots of steep runs, the east is easier. Not so good for first-time skiers, but excellent for advanced to experts. The mountain is run by a nonprofit club, and it is very uncrowded and laid back. Rental gear is OK, but maybe better to rent in Santa Fe or Albuquerque if you don't own your own.
