2011 K2WW@PM group photo
Some of the participants of the 2011 K2 Women's Weekend at Pajarito Mountain gathered for a group photo after raising $10,000 for charity!

K2 and Pajarito Mountain teamed up again this year to host the 3rd annual Women’s Weekend, a 3-day charity event to raise funds for men & women diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer. Despite numerous unfortunate events that occurred days before our Weekend – La Nina struck Pajarito Mountain causing it to close the weekend before our event and residents of Northern New Mexico suffered a multi-day gas outage causing a state emergency & FEMA response – over 60 women came together to support our cause and to ski in celebration! In our inaugural year, we raised $2900; last year we raised $6500; this year we raised over $10,000!! A generous thank you goes to Adriana Blake, Taos Ski Valley Marketing Director and K2 Women’s Alliance Member, for welcoming our group at Taos, and to all the local vendors and volunteers who made this event possible.
