Pajarito Mountain took center stage at Tuesday’s Lodgers’ Tax Advisory Board meeting.
Stacy Glaser, marketing director for Sipapu Ski Resort/ Pajarito Recreation LP, provided an update on efforts to finalize the partnership with Los Alamos County and open for skiing and snowboarding this winter.
Contract negotiations are ongoing, but Glaser reported that all parties are committed to the effort.
“We fully anticipate that by ski season the contract will be in effect,” Glaser said.
Besides negotiations, Pajarito’s primary effort has been obtaining water for snowmaking.
The U.S. Forest Service is holding a public meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at Trinity on the Hill concerning Pajarito Recreation’s application for a temporary pipeline to run water from the Los Alamos Reservoir to the ski area.
“This is a temporary solution. This is something that we could do for 12 months,” Glaser said.
“This would essentially buy us some time to investigate more permanent solutions.”
The county has offered Pajarito 5 million gallons of free water, which must be siphoned off the reservoir in order to dredge it.
