Had lunch with co-workers at the ski lodge and it was worth the trip! Cooked to order, and the view is outstanding! Do go!

Haven't had the snow for years, but still a great spot for picnics and hiking, biking and just kicking back and listening to the aspens blow in the wind. The ski hill when it does open, which will happen soon in the future with weather permitting, I rate to,a small Taos, with all ratings of slopes. is

We recently went to Pajarito Ski area for my kids to have their first opportunity to ski. The beginner hill was the only thing open, but it was a perfect learning place. We started them off with 2 hour lessons for a very reasonable price. The ski instructors were pleasant and patient. One of my sons also learned snowboarding. He... More

I've skied at Pajarito Ski Mountain many times over the years, and have to admit that it is the best place to go after a big snow dump. It is a friendly, inviting, uncrowded ski area with plenty of terrain to explore ranging from the traditional bunny hill to more advanced double black diamond runs with steep pitches, moguls, and...

Everyone at this place is super friendly and encouraging from ticket sales, equipment rental, lift workers and we had the 2 best ski instructors. Kyle was very patient and taught this family of 5 a lot n a full day. 3 kids 6, 11, 13 all had a great time. Great Lil spot for beginners in a family setting for... More

If you want a place to ski without lift lines, this is it. It is a beautiful ski "hill" which at 10,000 feet is much higher than any hill I skied in the East. There are plenty of runs for the novice to beyond expert and mogals to challenge most skiers. Only open on the weekends and Holidays during good... More

I had been there last winter and it was my first time to be there. It has much harder blue and black lanes. I was a starter but I still had fun there. Remember to arrive early. After I think 3pm, it would be getting dark and really cold, and you'd better go back home. The cost is relatively same... More

A beautiful place to spend the day year round, this ski hill is treasured by locals (and should probably be kept a secret). During the winter the snow can be unreliable, but on good years it has the best runs in the state. There are never lines at the lifts and quite often you have the entire run to yourself.... More

I am reluctant to write this review as I feel I am revealing to the public a grand secret that we have kept for some time. After all, we are known as the "secret city" since WW II. I chuckle every time I hear Pajarito Ski "Hill". At an altitude of 10, 441 feet, this "hill" is taller than any... More

My husband and I are frequent skiers in the winter months. We love Pajarito when the snow is plentiful. As with all of New Mexico resorts, the snow is rather unreliable. When there's snow in NM the skiing can be incredible! We've had some amazing powder days at Pajarito when we had first tracks on every single run. No lie!... More
