Pajarito Mountain ready for Ullr Fest

Pajarito Mountain will host its annual Ullr Fest this weekend, signaling the official end to the summer season and beginning the preparations for ski season. 

Ullr Fest, which was described by Pajarito employee Jeffrey Bold as “big and boisterous,” is the mountain’s fall festival, which is aimed at “appeasing the mythological snow gods,” and bringing about a successful ski season. 

In Norse mythology, Ullr is the winter god. He is regarded as the Patron Saint of skiers, and it is believed that skiers must please him to bring about a successful season.

“The real goal of this event is to hopefully bring the snow for the upcoming season,” Bold said. 

The event kicks off on Saturday, with a guided 10-mile hike from Los Alamos to Pajarito Mountain led by the Pajarito Environmental Education Center and the Los Alamos Mountaineers set to begin at 7:45 a.m. To register for the free hike, go to peecnature.org or call 662-0460. 

The ski lifts will begin running at 9 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, and will run until 3 p.m. 

The cost of a ski lift ticket for the event is $25. 

There will be numerous events taking place all day, including a downhill mountain bike race and a poker run race.
