Pajarito Mountain Overview
You've just got to love the small town resorts that try so hard to give us a little summer gravity fix each year. Pajarito Mountain in New Mexico is no exception. Like many small, family resorts, Pajarito depends on dedicated volunteers who maintain and build all of the mountain's trails. (And from all reports, what they build is worth the visit!) If you're ever in the area, and it happens to be one of their opening weekends, give Pajarito a visit. You'll be glad you did!
In 2011, Pajarito was hit hard due to massive forest fires in the area, but they've been working hard to get trails back in shape.
Pajarito Mountain is always open for hiking and XC biking, but lift-served hiking and biking are available only on selected Saturdays through the summer.
June 7, 2014: Pajarito Punishment New Mexico State DH Mountain Bike Championship and Summerfest, 12 local microbreweries and live music.
Sept 20, 2014: Ullrfest, 12 local microbreweries, live music and lift access mountain biking.
Pajarito Mountain Ski Area is located five miles west of Los Alamos, New Mexico.
