Pajarito Mountain

  Many many good runs here at Pajarito. I enjoy skiing here very much. Says Monica.

There's 280 acres of skiable territory, and all of it makes for tremendous skiing. This ski resort receives snowfall close to the local average every season. Every winter this ski area gets 8 feet of snow, and that keeps the depth delightful. This ski mountain has a drop from top to bottom of 1,410 feet; Pajarito Mountain makes great use of it. Pajarito Mountain has a reasonable
    diversity of trails and an acceptable amount of good ski lifts. Pajarito Mountain is a small-size ski mountain featuring an average drop when compared to other US Rockies ski resorts. On this slope you'll encounter 37 different trails;
there are plenty trails for every capability. The San Juan and Jemez Mountains in wintertime is an enormously tremendous spot if you enjoy snowboarding and skiing. You have to go 39 miles to get to a ski resort having a more sizeable height difference. You could be into skiing or snowboarding, or both, doesn't matter, this is a neighborhood with a lot of spots for that. Pajarito Mountain is a family friendly ski resort with a lot of green and blue trails for beginners.  
This ski hill has 7 different ski lifts, and they are ably taken care of and operated by kind people. This ski mountain has a much lower than average proportion of challenging slopes and a much higher than average share of intermediate or beginner trails. Nothing outclasses the New Mexico highlands in the winter; they are something you canít miss if you're keen on snowboarding and skiing. The highlands of the San Juan and Jemez Mountains make for a tremendous panorama. The splendid mountain scenery of New Mexico and the nice sense of cruising down the trails are nice attractions for a lot of ski folks. Magnificent exercise and just being on the slopes for a while will make you feel delightful. This is a great ski resort with scores of different trails; it's completely out of the question to get bored here. No need to search hard for places to stay, but do reserve a room prior to departure since it is a very popular destination. Skiing and snowboarding here in New Mexico is lots of fun every day of the winter season.
