LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) - Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort is taking over management of Los Alamos's Pajarito Mountain Ski Area.

Los Alamos County and Sipapu on Thursday announced the agreement for the upcoming season. Sipapu also says it will offer a New Mexico Power Pass for unlimited access to both mountains, plus free lift tickets at more than 20 other ski areas throughout the country.

The Los Alamos Ski Club operated Pajarito for over seven decades. But the ski area in recent years has had little snow.

In May, members approved transferring it to Los Alamos County and the management group that operates Sipapu.

The Sipapu Group has been working with the Los Alamos Ski Club and the county to improve Pajarito's snowmaking infrastructure in order to ensure a full operating season.
