    Big Weekend at Pajarito: July 18, 19 & 20

    There's a lot going on at Pajarito (http://skipajarito.com/) this weekend:

    Friday night they're having a free concert with The Gourds (http://www.myspace.com/thegourdstx). I'm guessing there will be an evening jump session in the trees.

    Saturday and Sunday are both downhill days

    Microbeer will be served from Santa Fe Brewing

    Come on up and ride!

    P.S. I missed last weekend but heard the trails were in perfect shape after the recent rains. Did anyone get any pics to post?

    more about the beer!!

    I hear that Santa Fe brewery will be serving for the free concert Friday night (this is for sure) and then Marble Brewery will be serving on Saturday (can any confirm this?) Marble's IPA is supposedly great

    And as Neal said the trails are in great shape, the rain has been good to them. Sadly, I will miss the entire weekend.
    there can be only one... track

    Yep I made it up Saturday and the trails were super nice. Nice moisture content in the dirt, not too muddy, not too dry. In other words, just right. Unfortunately some dude on a late 80's Ross rigid bike cut me off wussing out before a jump and caused me to crash hard resulting in a concussion and some whiplash. I should be de-scrambled enough to head out again Saturday.

    I'm going for the Marble IPA. I love IPA's....

    Here's a snippet from the newsletter that Pajarito sent out last night:

    ************************************************** ************
    There's a packed weekend ahead on the mountain...


    FRIDAY JULY 18th 7 PM: LOS ALAMOS COUNTY SUMMER CONCERT SERIES* AT PAJARITO MOUNTAIN

    Music by The Gourds and beer from Santa Fe Brewing Company and food from the grill.


    SATURDAY JULY 19th: LIFT-SERVED BIKING AND HIKING 9 AM - 3 PM

    With beer from Marble Brewery and food from the grill.


    SUNDAY JULY 20th: LIFT-SERVED BIKING & HIKING 9 AM - 3 PM
    ************************************************** ****************************************

    So, looks like Santa Fe Brewery on Fri, and Marble brewery on Sat.

    little bird

    I'll be rockin' the 'rito as a part of my LAHS Class of 1988 20-year high school reunion.

    Bringing the bike, but I'm pretty much a XC type guy (and old, see reunion reference above) and generally try to keep my tires on the ground. Kinda stoked to check out the trails on the ski hill, but also to hit some of the old stomping grounds (guaje, pipeline, kamezon, etc)

    Anybody who'd be up for that sort of thing on Sat, let me know.

    I'm hoping to make it back out this weekend. Unfortunately, my arm is still giving me hell for a lame crash last weekend I can almost ride my bike again, but still can't put much pressure on my right wrist. I might wind up just taking pictures, but be warned that my camera skills are even worse than my riding skills The trails were in perfect condition from the moisture last weekend, should be amazing again this weekend!

    YEAH! new trail - pretty fun and I fixed it up some yesterday and added a few little things
    Also figured out how I can extend that beginning jump section ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM. probably 35 jumps. Hope to start on that next week - Looking for volunteers

    Hey dino!

    You will love all the trails at Pajarito - tons of great XC stuff in addition to the DH mania. Guaje is of course a prerequisite, as is Nail Trail and Quemazon.

    to-mae-toe/to-ma-toe, kamezon/Quemazon. Whatever. Actually I really ought to know better having cut my proverbial mt biking teeth on this trail back in 1987 on my Trek 850. [Say in Jeff Foxworth voice} "You might have become a Colorado-Redneck if .... you can no longer spell Quemazon"

    Now what is this "Nail Trial" of which you speak.

    Oh and the last time I road Quaje there were still trees!

    Nail Trail starts right off the 'Gate Road' - the one that you take out of LA to get to Pajarito. A short bit past the turnoff for the ski area, it climbs right up the embankment and starts to hurt pretty quick. It's more tecnical than Quemazon, and eventually gets you to an intersection that offers the choice of (left) heading into /down Pajarito Trail (awesome Canyon - lush, green, creek flowing and all) or (bear right) spinning out a 2-track to the ski area access road, about a mile down fom the Townsight Lift.

    I got hit by a car last week riding to the Dale Ball trails after work. Thanks to the kind folks that hit me, I've got a new Rock Shox Totem for my piggy-bike. Can't wait to try it out this weekend on the lifts! Hopefully my wrists will feel good enough to ride that terrain.
    I'm just glad to have replaced that crappy Marzocchi that sucked from day one.
    Cant wait to finally ride the lifts on a fork that works!!!

    Pajarito rules....

    I am so happy and proud to live only a few hours from a world-class bike playground! I've only missed one lift day this year--had a blast every time! Thanks to everybody who builds/maintains Pajarito, and thanks to everyone who comes out to enjoy the place--the friendly attitude just makes everything that much cooler!

    ...from the girl on the Syren...

    Weather....

    Can any local play weather man (insert Brick Tamland photo) tomorrow morning? I question how accurate the weather report is. Or maybe I'm just being optimistic.

    Thanks.
    It will be the same as its been the past 2 weeks. Perfect morning, clouds around noon, then rummbles - the lift will probably shut down for a bit (dirt jump sessions) but no rain. The lift will run again for a few late runs. Maybe a sprinkle in the evening but probably not. The ski hill hasn't been getting those heavy rains that ABQ and Santa Fe has been getting except 2 Tuesdays ago
    SUNDAY IS REPEAT
    Get there early to get as much riding in if it does thunder

    We had a great day today! It rained hard Friday and made for perfectly tacky soil all day today. The chairs didn't shutdown once for lightning and it didn't rain at all. Hopefully tomorrow is a repeat.

    Yup, had a great day. Thanks to all those who made it possible...

    What was everyone using for a back tire? My Michelin DH24 would not hook up on any of the wood features.

    Ditto what Tim said.

    We had a blast today thanks to Rich, Neal, and everyone else who helped create the extensive trail network at Pajarito.

    Great work guys!

    I was riding Michelin DH32s, 24 psi in rear, 22 psi in front, tubeless. It was hooking up on everything but a few slick roots on my first run or two . I had one instance on the really big rock roller (see picture above that NM_Highlander took last week) where my front tire drifted a bit going down the wet rock face

    I had a similar experience on the roller too... and on some skinnies... and some roots... and some landing... etc. etc.

    Pictures from Today!

    We had another perfect day at Pajarito. Trails were tacky and the weather held all day. I took a new camera that I don't like as much as my old one but got some descent shots during the day. The below are in order of the days progression.

    Today was another great day! Neal, it was a lot of fun riding with you and Kristin (and everyone else whose names I have forgotten ). That run down half aspen was my last for the day: After helping rkopelov with the flat, I finally stopped rolling everything, which wasn't such a great idea. I landed a drop awkwardly (and didn't crash), but I managed to pull the same muscle in my arm that I hurt last week. Ice and Advil from the first aid guys, but no more riding for at least a few days

    Between travel and school, I won't be back for a while, but I'll show up for at least one more weekend. Probably the 30th and/or 13th and 14th, depending on my school schedule.

    Oh and the last time I road Quaje there were still trees!
    Wow was it fun to go ride stuff that I haven't ridden in many many years and to check out the positively outstanding stuff that's been built up at the ski area.

    Had some sweet storm watching as we drove through the Rio Grande valley:


    Quemazon on Fri evening after we rolled into town was surreal. Exact same trail it was 20 years ago, but with 8-year old aspen growth, wildflowers going off the hook, and views in every direction that I'd never seen before. Kinda bizarre, actually. But the more things change the more they stay the same and that trail can put the aerobic hurt on me the same as ever.

    On Sat I rode a lap and a half on the ski hill. Stellar stuff there and I would have like'd to explore more, but we had people to see and beers to drink.

    The house my Dad and Uncle built in 1973 is right down there:


    Grinding the "jeep road"


    Cranking out the top of Aspenola:


    A little break at the top to listen to some time-warped music (still playing the same songs as when I left in 1988 )


    And then some gravity-induced fun:


    Pulled over on the way home to sample a short little piece of the Colorado trail, too:

    Ditto rkopelov

    Thanks to all who make Pajarito work, you are all the best. For now all I can offer are my dollars, and my embarrassing gushing to others about your mountain. Once my boys get older we will for sure be up to help with the trail building, right now it is all I can do to peel away from the family for an occasional visit.

    If for no other reason this mountain is super cool for the set it attracts, every one is super friendly (see the pic of everyone sitting in the parking lot after a day of riding). Big thanks to the brother set Jason and Daniel who let me tag along with them the weekend of the 12th. And to Jason's gal, Ruby who actually reached out and said hi and had a really cool yelling conversation with me on the first chair up of the day (we were on separate chairs). You were all a lot of fun to ride with. Sorry I had to leave so suddenly that Saturday my stomach was all messed up, most likely from the Monster I guzzled at lunch and getting home seemed like the best thing.

    From the guy on the Syren.

    Good pics Neal, You'd think that the beer would be in front of me but Dan gets that honor (or is it both of us?)
    To any potential trail volunteers - Dan and I will hopefully start back-hoe work on the long jump trail (Liquid Dirt?) on Wed or Thurs. this week. We've been talking about a big work day on Sunday Aug. 3 (the day after the next lift day which is only a Saturday). Tenative plans to ride that Sat. and maybe a bit of digging, camp out up there and dig more on Sunday. I would love to get most of the trail roughed in (30+ jumps, only 5 done right now)before the year is done but there's alot of hand shoveling required even with a tractor
    This trail will become everyones fav. in time

    Rode in Pajarito this weekend and was blown away!! Great job on the trails and obstacles. Natural selection is a wicked fun trail! Hit most of the top jumps but the bottom was a little muddy...

    Mother's Milk

    Mother's Milk will be the place to be this weekend at Pajarito . Just after the top log ride there are new berms, new jumps, a big 10-15' step down followed by a big step up, a new route through the little hill you used to have to push up in the middle of the run, and a fixed teeter-totter

    Note on the Step Down: Take it slow, it's easy to over jump it and bottom out your fork (I did that on Wed night). You can brake check going into it and still have plenty of speed.

    The new entry to Chupacabra has also been fixed up and has a new jump leading into the main jumps

    The really rough part of Muy Loco where the log ride is has also been fixed up a bunch.

    Nice Pics!

    The lift and skies opened back up at 1pm Sunday after a 1 hour rain delay and we actually had a descent afternoon. At 3pm a couple of the Phonexians still had enough for one more run so I took them on our new trail that connects the ski hill to our normal Nail Trail shuttle run on my way back to town (wife took the truck home during the rain ).

    VERY VERY succesful weekend considering the original weather forcast! Thanks to all who came up

    My legs hurt .

    Look What I found in the Forest

    Made pretty good head way on the corkscrew even though I got a rain shortened day . You might be able to find it if you wander around the forest at Pajarito this weekend. Its a completely new trail segment so it'll be a treasure hunt. should still take several more days to finish and i'd love to see some help for trail building so that we can get to it. Sorry for the bad phone picture as it was raining on me.
    Good rain up there last night though have the trails in great shape for the weekend
    See you all there
