Last weekend Pajarito Ski Area hosted the inaugural Rocky Mountain Race Series. The weekend played out in a classic format, featuring Cross Country racing, Dual Slalom racing, and a Downhill race. Big props to Keith Darner of Chocolate Bunny Productions for organizing and managing this event!

Due to restraints from our day jobs, we couldn’t cover as much of this event as we would have liked, but MTBNM Photographer Connor Carpenter managed to get up to Pajarito on Sunday to shoot some of the Downhill racing. Here is what he got, enjoy.
