9″ of Snow + a New Terrain Park

Wednesday’s winter storm dropped an impressive 9″ of snow! We’re excited to ski the powder when Pajarito re-opens this Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday – plus, a second storm looks like it could make its way to our mountain starting late Sunday or early Monday (click here for the forecast).

We typically open 21 trails and our Aspen, Beginner and Mighty Mite lifts on weekdays. Thanks to this week’s snow, we’re going to open 32 trails and four lifts: Mother, Aspen, Beginner and Mighty Mite for all four days. We’ll also open Lone Spruce on Saturday and Sunday.

I’m also very proud to announce that our mountain crew has worked hard to open Pajarito’s first terrain park of the season, the Rail Yard. Featured prominently in the base area, this beginner park offers 6 features (2 boxes and 4 rails) and gives everyone – from first-timers to park rats – the opportunity to display their skills. There’s a big “wow” factor for everyone with the Rail Yard!

The Rail Yard terrain park opens on Friday!

One of the great things about this park is how easy it is to access – you can easily do laps on our beginner lift to reach it (or hike up and down) and, thanks to its proximity to our lodge, you can even hear the live music that will be playing on Saturday during our Beer and Band event (featuring Blue Heron Brewery and The Craig Martin Experience!) For all of our weekend events, please click here.

I want to say a special thanks to Tom Long and his staff for their hard work – they continue to find ways to keep expanding our operations, and I’m proud of the work they’ve done. We’ll keep you posted on additional developments here.
