Located on 750 acres on the eastern edge of the Jemez Mountains, Pajarito features spectacular views of the Rio Grande Valley and the Valles Caldera National Preserve. The mountain has a deep history in the area, and was first founded by scientists at the nearby Los Alamos National Laboratory. The mountain offers Ski & Ride School, rentals and dining. During the summer, Pajarito Mountain is known for its extensive lift-served mountain bike trail system and hosting signature events, including Ullrfest at the beginning of winter and longtime favorite Skiesta, which celebrates Spring.
