Pajarito Mountain Ski Area is located five miles west of Los Alamos, and is easy to get to from the east or west:
» From Santa Fe or Espanola take NM 502 to the Y split east of town, then follow NM 502 through Los Alamos town center.
Either proceed through the LANL security checkpoint on the south side of Omega Bridge, (open to the public - but picture ID required), or take West Road at the traffic light just north of Omega Bridge, which avoids the checkpoint entirely.
» From the Jemez on State Road 4, turn left onto NM 501 and then left again onto West Road just before the west checkpoint.
» Whichever way you choose, from West Road follow the signs and turn west onto Camp May Road, then drive 3 miles to the ski area.
