Pajarito Mountain officials touted a successful winter season and announced plans for a robust summer season filled with mountain biking and festivals.
Pajarito Mountain and its sister resort, Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort, experienced a combined 23 percent increase in skier visits over the previous year.
Pajarito opened for ski season on Nov. 27, one of the earliest starts in recent history, operating a total of 87 days, also the most for the resort in recent years.
Pajarito offered skiers and snowboarders a consistent operating schedule of five days a week, a schedule that will continue again next winter.
“Going into this winter, our team had several goals: to fill the pond, open Pajarito on ‘White Friday,’ expand our operating schedule and, most importantly, to provide the best skiing possible to every guest that visited this mountain,” Tom Long, General Manager of Pajarito Mountain, said. “I’m proud to announce we were able to accomplish all of those objectives. While we continue to make huge strides, we only see more opportunities to expand upon those accomplishments and we’re eager to continue taking our operations to the next level at Pajarito.”
