Long before the ski season started, Pajarito Mountain got its first bit of bad news. That would be a harbinger of things to come in 2010-11.
Saturday, Pajarito will celebrate Skiesta, the unofficial ending of the ski season. While in past years the mountain has been able to operate into late March, this season is one Pajarito may just as soon pretend never happened.
“We’re sorry about the snow, we’re sorry Mother Nature didn’t help us out this year, but what the hell?” said Pajarito general manager Tom Long. “We’ll have a party and enjoy ourselves before the summer.”
With dry, warm conditions this winter, Pajarito’s season never got on track. Poor snow conditions allowed the mountain just 15 total days of operation, all of them coming after its most critical time of the season, winter break.
While it has been a less-than-ideal season for most ski areas in New Mexico, Pajarito was hopeful it could use its new snow-making capabilities to get an adequate base going prior to the start of the season.
