Terrain Parks - Pajarito Mountain 

Rider’s Guide

Pajarito is a good mountain to ride whether you are a seasoned rider, or just starting out. There is a slope for every level of skier, and there is always powder to be found on the mountain. 

Parks & Pipes

Kids can try riding within the little terrain park in the learning area off the Beginner lift. For the more advanced snowboarder, the Crazy Mother Terrain Park with challenging features can be found off of the Mother Lift via one of the blue or black Mother trails.

Out of Bounds

Nuther Mother is a must-try for mogul-lovers. The double blacks are pretty steep for about the first hundred yards, then waist-high moguls for the rest. Milt's Meadow is a smart way to break into glade skiing because it has a gentler pitch and the trees are spread out. Why Not and Pussycat stand out as groomed blues with varying pitches. For a good tour of the mountain take East Road, a nicely cut road that riders can cruise.

Hangout & Hookup

There’s no alcohol served on the mountain, but Pajarito allows visitors to bring your own adult beverages. The 20-mile drive to Santa Fe is easy and provides access to more delicious food, bars and casinos.  An evening in the smaller, closer town of Los Alamos is even more laid back.
