Skiing: Despite warm temps, event to include number of races

By Mike Cote

It’s one of the biggest events of the ski season at Pajarito Mountain and this year it looks to be the last event of any kind there.
Skiesta, the big blowout party celebrating the final days of the ski season, is scheduled for Saturday at Pajarito. But with spring quickly setting in and temperatures rising, Pajarito’s 2011-12 season is drawing to a close.
It was a strange year for Pajarito. Despite good snowfall this winter — considerably more than many long-range forecasts were predicting — and coming off the heels of a rough 2010-11 season, the type of crowds the ski area was hoping to see seemed never to arrive.
Ski area manager Tom Long said crowds were solid throughout the Christmas break, an important time for resorts in Northern New Mexico, but quickly dwindled throughout January and February.
But Long said ski club members usually turn out in good numbers for Skiesta, an event that dates back at least to the 1950s.
“The mood around the ski hill is very supportive,” he said. “This is such a long-standing event. Last year, we had to do it without the ski areas being open, but there were a lot of people. The club really gets behind it.”
