Overview

Pajarito Mountain, located on the eastern slope of New Mexico's Jemez Mountain Range, is open Fridays to Sundays, as well as on federal and Christmas holidays. The mountain has an impressive 10,440 foot summit elevation as well as a 1,440 vertical drop over 300 acres of skiable terrain. Pajarito sometimes serves up prodigous powder, and offers beautiful views of the Rio Grande Valley, and small crowds. Skiers and snowboarders have access to the mountain thanks to a quad lift, triple, 3 doubles and 1 rope tow. Sitting above Los Alamos in the Jemez Mountains, it was for years the private stash of scientists and their families but has been open to the general public for more than two decades. Pajarito offers rental services, retail facilities, a café dining option and a high quality snow sports school.
