Mother Nature is beginning to do its part.
After receiving more than 20 inches of snow in the past two weeks, Pajarito Mountain Ski Area opened almost 100 percent of its ski hill for skiing and snowboarding operations.
On Tuesday, Pajarito added five more runs including Daisy Mae, Li’l Abner, Dog Patch, Sundance and Bonanza. The following day, the ski hill opened Big Mother, Little Mother, Sidewinder, Precious, Breathless, Rim Rum, Why Not to Zero Road West, One More Time to Zero Road West and I Don’t to Zero Road West.
“Our mountain crew has been working overtime track-packing and grooming the slopes to open up as much of the mountain as possible,” said Pajarito manager Tom Long.
It was Pajarito’s most thrilled week of the season, as the ski hill will temporarily close on Monday for snow making purposes.
Torchlight Parade set for Saturday
Pajarito’s annual New Year’s Eve Torchlight Parade is scheduled for sundown on Saturday.
