Tree on Breathless

Today was a great day at Pajarito! It was fun to see so many people on our mountain, enjoying the powder! Thank you to everyone who joined us.

Today at Pajarito. The conditions are great!

We were able to open the local-favorite Fab Four (which include bump runs Nuther Mother, Sidewinder, Breathless and Precious), and the conditions were fantastic. Unfortunately, sometime between the two winter storms this past week, a tree came down on Breathless between the two Zero Roads. For those of you who saw it, you know it was a very large tree. We tried (unsuccessfully) to remove the tree by hand and had to bring a snow cat to push it off the trail. This evening, we’re winching (which is the process used for grooming very steep terrain) our way down the trail to clean things up – which means Breathless will be groomed tomorrow.

We hate to groom this popular bump run, although with the downed tree on the trail, we really had no choice. We will not be grooming Nuther Mother, Sidewinder and Precious.

Again, thank you to everyone who has skied or snowboarded with this this winter, and to those who will be visiting our mountain over the next days and weeks. As a reminder, Pajarito is open for daily operations now through January 3!
