Celebrate Spring Break With Wild And Wacky Mountaintop Thrills At Skiesta



An annual tradition celebrating the eclectic mountain culture of Los Alamos, Skiesta is a favorite event of both locals and visitors. Taking place at one of New Mexico’s best ski areas, Pajarito Mountain, Skiesta combines local beers and wines with live music, skiing and snowboarding, and of course, the popular costume contest.

Events run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 14. Featured breweries for the year include Boese Brothers, Second Street Brewery, Red River Brewing Company, Bathtub Row Brewing and Rowleys Farmhouse Brewery, and music will be performed by DK and the Affordables.

“A long standing tradition in Los Alamos, Skiesta is a unique experience each year,” said Kelly Stewart, Marketing Manager for Los Alamos County. “Come up to the lodge and enjoy spring break on the mountain, with great local music, food and beverages, all while you watch—or participate in—stunning displays of talent—and costumes—by skiers and snowboarders. Skiesta is a party you don’t want to miss!”

In addition to Skiesta, visitors can enjoy the area’s three National Park sites—Bandelier National Monument, Valles Caldera National Preserve, and Manhattan Project National Historical Park—explore the interactive Bradbury Science Museum, and stop by the Nature Center to plan the hike and/or bike adventure of choice on the 200-plus miles of trails through and around Los Alamos area.

“There’s no reason spring break trips have to stop when you’re out of school,” added Stewart. “Book your spring break getaway to Los Alamos where you’ll discover affordable lodging, easy access to museums, restaurants and breweries, and Pajarito Mountain Ski Area just five miles from downtown—with free shuttle service during Skiesta!”
