I took my daughter here to learn to ski for two days this past week, and was really happy with the experience. It was very uncrowded, with no lift lines at all (and this during Texas' spring break). Everyone was really friendly. My daughter's two instructors gave her lots of attention, and she made great progress - learning first to... More

This ski mountain offers excellent value for money and is interesting enough to keep you entertained for several days. The tour lessons were fantastic for my 9 year old who was then able to ski with me for the next days! We will be back

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.
