Ski club approves Pajarito sale proposal

Los Alamos Ski Club members voted in favor of a proposal to transfer ownership of the Pajarito Ski Area from the Los Alamos Ski Club to the Pajarito Recreation Limited Partnership at a special meeting held Thursday.

In a statement, the ski club board said, “This is a big step forward for the ski club in order to complete a transfer of ownership and operations that began back in 2014.”

If negotiations succeed, PRLP, which has been operating the ski area for three years, would acquire all 750 acres of the Pajarito Ski Area land in Los Alamos County, and assume all of the ski club’s outstanding debt, which totals $1.25 million.

According to ski club member Michael Altherr, more than 90 members attended the meeting.

He said that the board did a good job of answering questions and addressing concerns before the vote.

“Everyone got their say,” Altherr said. “By the time we got to the vote, there was no additional discussion needed.”

The vote passed with a two-thirds majority, as is required in the ski club bylaws.

One of the main reasons for wanting to get this deal done is the need for substantial improvements in the area, which PRLP have been reluctant to make due to the lack of ownership of assets.
