Storms give Pajarito a push to open

Skiing: Local ski area set to start its season Saturday

By Mike Cote

Ski season is finally here, and for skiers and for Pajarito Mountain alike, it comes just in time.
Pajarito will open for the season Saturday, thanks to a pair of snowstorms that dropped more than a foot of snow Monday and Tuesday.
There is still plenty of work to do, said Pajarito general manager Tom Long, prior to the opening, set for 9 a.m.
“We’re still grooming the mountain,” Long said. “We’re getting the mountain dressed up, we’re getting the ramps for the unloading areas on the lifts. We’re putting up signs for the patrol area…just getting all that ready for Saturday.”
The school winter break time is also a make-or-break time for ski areas, particularly Pajarito, which gets a big chunk of its yearly business during this period because Los Alamos National Laboratory also has several days’ break.
Pajarito is projecting to be running at or near full capacity on its lifts several days during the period between Saturday and the New Year.
“Usually, the first week before Christmas is OK, but the week after Christmas is enormous,” Long said.
