Taos is epic when there's new snow but it get's skiied out and the rocks there mean less than 50" of snow is dangerous for your skis. Pajarito is much smaller but has a lot of varied terrain including advanced terrain. It's a hidden gem. Seldom are their lines. the place is very family friendly. The town isn't a resort... More

Don't just wait for the snow to enjoy amazing views of Los Alamos and environs from 9,000 ft in elevation. The fall foliage is stunning, but it's also a great spot for some shaded hiking or biking in the heat of summer.

When Pajarito has good snow, it's second only to Taos in NM for reasonably good skiers. Loved by advanced skiers. But if you do want to come, please check the snow conditions first. Lift tickets pretty reasonable too.

Decent food, long lines for lunch when the hill is busy. Open certain days during the summer as well.

My son and I came from Texas for Spring Break. I am a level IV skiier and he snowboards. This was our first trip to Pararito. I wish we could have been here under better snow conditions. The staff were great. The facilities were clean. The price of tickets and rentals was great. However, too many of the runs were... More

I decided after a lifetime of being an avid skier I wanted to try snowboarding. We were visiting Santa Fe and my fiancé suggested this place, as he used to frequent here when he lived in Los Alamos years ago. This turned out to be a great place to learn as there weren't many people and the beginner slope was... More

We loved loved it! We are intermediate skiers and there were no lift lines and lift tickets were only 49 dollars compared to Santa Fe at 79.00. We had plenty of room to ski and the runs were great! We will be back. For those that need harder runs there was plenty of double diamond runs and for beginners there... More

We just wrapped up our 5th annual ski trip to Pajarito Mountain. Needless to say this place is like coming home each year between Christmas and New Year. I cannot say enough about the employees! Smiling faces, helpful, experienced, patient and just good people! Prices are very family friendly and there is no line to get on the lifts. We... More
