Pajarito Mountain Snowmaking to be Limited

Snowmaking will be limited at Pajarito Mountain this season as last year’s water collection proved lack-luster with disappointing snowfall totals and low water density in the snowpack, said Pajarito Mountain's Clay Paris. 

The new water retention snowmaking pond at the top of the ski hill has been repaired, however, the pond remains at a low water storage level due to the lack of a good spring runoff, Pajarito Mountain General Manager Tom Long said.
