Pajarito Mountain Information

Pajarito Mountain is located on the eastern edge of the Jemez Mountains in north central New Mexico, 5 miles west of Los Alamos. It comprises around 750 acres of land, privately owned by Los Alamos Ski Club, that was developed as a ski area in the late 1950's. The mountain has great views to the east over the Rio Grande Valley towards the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and from the top, to the west over the Valle Grande. More history »

Pajarito Mountain currently has about 300 acres of cleared skiable terrain, not counting some excellent tree skiing, and has some of the best bump skiing in the state. It is rarely crowded, and is noted for its lack of lift lines. It is open to the public, selling both day tickets and season passes. There is no lodging at the mountain, but there are several hotels and other lodging options available in Los Alamos and Santa Fe.
