The Las Conchas fire (largest NM fire ever) has completely burned thru the Pajarito Ski Area and thru the
entire access road from the Los Alamos Natl Lab.
The fire crews were able to save the base lodge and most/all ? structures on the property.
I skied there once about 6 years ago. Its small but has some interesting cruising runs. Nothing hard.
Pajarito has 5 lifts. The fire has apparently melted one lift cable causing the chairs to fall to the ground.
Here's one base lift photo of the burn from LANL.
Looks like much is a ground fire with less tree crown burning.
The rest of LANL's interactive imaging doesn't seem to work. As the evacuation of the town of Los Alamos
has just ended maybe someone can provide more information.
Two other NM ski areas are threatened but look to dodge the bullet on this one.
They are Sipapu and Santa Fe -which I've also skied.
