PAJARITO MOUNTAIN News:

March 17 at Pajarito will be the 70th Annual Skiesta.

Skiesta is a long-standing tradition at Pajarito Mountain.  The very first Skiesta was held in 1948 and featured music, costumes and a 50 cent hot dog lunch.

Since it’s very humble beginnings, Skiesta has been a wacky spring event that celebrates the unique mountain culture of Los Alamos and the wonderful sport of skiing (all types—snowboarding included!).

This year there will be beer from six New Mexico Craft Breweries, a costume contest, themed skiing events, and music from the band Escape on a Horse! Learn more here.
