SKI News:

VADITO – Pajarito Mountain and Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort are closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 ski season effective today at the recommendation of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. 

“We are skiers at heart and today’s decision was a difficult one for all of us,” said James Coleman, a managing partner of Sipapu and Pajarito. “While many of our employees and customers wanted us to remain open, their health and wellbeing are of the utmost importance to us. We’ve decided to move forward with the Governor’s recommendation to end ski operations due to larger concerns for the wellbeing of our communities and the State of New Mexico as a whole.”

Sipapu guests with existing reservations through April 12 may rebook their trip at their convenience by emailing 

Guests who need a prepaid lift ticket refund can request directly through the resorts at or ski@pajarito, ski respectively. More information on refunds and rebookings can be found at the resort websites, and
