I have skied every resort in New Mexico, this is a mini Taos. Skied it this weekend with a 51" base. Lots of straight down bump runs. Greens are more like Blues. If you are a beginner, this mountain may be challenging. Lift tickets were the cheapest I've payed for lift tickets this year. I had a blast.

When people call it the best bump skiing around, they're not pulling your leg. Also, lift lines were so short on a Friday that I feel kind of bad leaving a review. Don't go there, it's terrible!

This ski hill is arguably the best attraction in this small town. The skiing is great, the tickets are cheap for such amazing skiing. If you or your family are inexperienced in skiing/snowboarding the lessons are very helpful and enable you to ski the whole mountain. If you're more experienced the blues, blacks, and double black diamonds are fun and... More

Here you can hike, ski, and feel the joy of the mountain scape. If your longing for the wilds, it is only 15 minutes from Los Alamos.

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
