Pajarito ski area offers snowsports programs to N.M.’s Native Americans

-A A +A

A ground breaking outreach program is being launched this winter at Pajarito Mountain Ski Area in Los Alamos which organizers, Director Of the Native Nations Sports Ambassador Program, David Vosburgh and Founder Jean Cornell working along with Suzy Chaffee of Native American Olympic Team Foundation hope will make it possible for more Native American youth and their chaperones to enjoy skiing and snowboarding.
“Those with proper tribal membership IDs can purchase a full-day lift ticket, including rentals, for a flat fee of $25, a discount of 30 to 60 percent off regular daily rates Friday to Sunday and holidays.
The offer is valid throughout the 2013-14 ski season including holiday periods,” said Tom Long, Pajarito Mountain General Manager.
Olympic ski icon and 1971-73 World Freestyle Champion Suzy “Chapstick” Chaffee will help launch the Pueblo ski program on Saturday, Jan. 4.
“She is excited about skiing with the kids,” said David Vosburgh, who helped organize the Pajarito program.
“We are inviting school groups of 20 to 70 (including chaperones) from any of New Mexico’s 19 pueblos for a special weekday learn-to-ski program at Pajarito Mountain which provides rental equipment, lift tickets, and two-hour lessons for $25 total,” he said.
