Due to unseasonably warm daytime temperatures and a lack of sufficient snowfall, officials at Pajarito Mountain announced they are delaying the ski area’s opening, which was originally scheduled for Friday, Dec. 21.

The mountain will open as soon as conditions permit.

“We’ve had to make the difficult decision to delay Pajarito’s opening, but we’re confident that we can open very soon. The ski area has a great base, but we just need one more significant snow storm to open,” Pajarito Mountain General Manager Tom Long said. “Our team is excited to kick off the ski season, and we’ll open the mountain as soon as conditions allow.”

Those who have a Power Pass can still use it to ski at resorts, including Sipapu Ski Resort near Taos, Purgatory Resort in Durango, Arizona Snowbowl in Flagstaff, and Nordic Valley Ski Resort in Utah.

New this year!  All kids who are ages 10 and younger can receive a free Power Kids Pass which provides direct-to-lift access with no blackout dates to Pajarito Mountain, Sipapu Ski Resort, Purgatory Resort, Hesperus Ski Area, and Arizona Snowbowl. The pass is valued at $399 and there is no purchase required.

Last season, Pajarito replaced the old Mitey Mite with a new Magic Carpet, which provides beginners an easier way to learn the sport and provides a better teaching area for beginners.
