Three More Days To Opening Day!

What to Expect for Opening Day. We are scheduled to open Lone Spruce and Bruce’s Boulevard, accessed by the Aspen Lift, on Saturday. With the great conditions we’ve been having, West Beginner Trail and the Mighty Mite Lift may also be open. Lift ticket prices will be just $29 for everyone this weekend! The Rental Shop, Pajarito Mountain Cafè, Ski and Snowboard School will also be open on Saturday.

Saturday’s planned runs and lifts are highlighted in yellow. The Aspen Lift, Lone Spruce Trail and West Beginner Trail are expected to be open. Conditions allowing, Mighty Mite Lift may also be open.

Snowmaking. Because of the advancements we have made in our snowmaking infrastructure, Snowmaking Manager Tommy said this is one of Pajarito’s best years of snowmaking! Tommy said that he chalks this up to the system’s automation, which we discussed in detail in our last blog post. Our plan for the rest of the week is to take advantage of the forecasted conditions by making snow non-stop until opening day!

Looking forward. With a good chunk of the mountain ready for opening day, our team is itching to go on an “exploratory trackpacking” mission to scope out areas that have enough snow for us to trackpack with the snowcat. Some spots have deeper bases than others, and we want to find those areas and open up as much skiable terrain as we can, as soon as possible! As time and conditions allow, Tommy said we may even be able to open up a few terrain park features for Saturday!

See you on the mountain!
