So just to clear things up, Brad did take control of the company once Stan had left. He still organizes games on the ski hill, and they are still very fun. I help him with the company and here's the new website. www.lapaintball.webs.com Anybody who used to play with Stan should definitely check out the site to get the news on upcoming games. They are still as much fun now as they were with Stan
I contacted Stan Pruitt about the operation and he informed me he just closed and moved to Utah. He said a guy named Brad has taken over running the games. He said they usually get ~60 players so it sounds like a goodtime.
Brad, if your out there post up some details. When is the next game?
This is a Totally free place and its in the woods so bring your camo! It's $1 A Fill (any size) and only co2 fills. Nobody here is mean so if your new we will help you. We play games like capture the flag, Round robin, and pretty much anything else you can think of. We play until about 6:00 and stan or someone else can give u a ride back into town if needed. Stan can help you with any gun problems. If your there alot, your pretty much considered family. So come join us!
this is deffinitly a one of a kind paintball field, stan (the owner) is a really cool guy, he charges nothing to play. the only thing that will cost you any money is the stuff that u buy from him
paint: $15.00 for 500 rnds
unfortunetly he got out of the rental buisness but if u need stuff he has a few guns and masks left over for $5.00 and i would give him a call to reserve some since supplies are limited.
i went yesterday so scheduals and prices are all up to date
every body gets there around 10:30 am to get ready then at 11.00 we all follow stans huge 6x6 lime green truck to the field (if u dont have a ride hop aboard stans "monster truck"). once at the field we split up in to teams and play capture the flag untill 5:00 he brings the CO2 tanks and paint with him in case u need more. the field is in the middle of the woods with little man made cover so bring your camo! due to the los alamos fire a few years back there isnt as much cover as there could be, but there is still enough. O and if ur on stans team stick with him if u want good tacticle action. again this is an awesom one of a kind field highly recomended for a good time check out the websight.

stand field is a good one its more relaxed its plenty safe and verry fun. stan plays on several fields with large teams the fields are several acres without much man made cover. trees rocks ravines and the occasional log bunker serve as protection. stans fills are good sometimes he has probs in the cold weather but its no biggie get over it. the people arent a prob there are some cheaters some times but its not that big of a deal. there arent any refs but there isnt realy a nead for them the people who play are honest any ways. most of the issues people have had with this field are because they are newb and dont know how to deal with it. The worst thing about this field is long balling there is a lot of it, it makes the game entirely stupid but its nothing a little sprint upfield cant handle. this is a great field with the best prices you will ever find.

To begin this is not a regular paintball field. You go to Stans house and if you don't have a ride you jump in his truck (or someone elses) and go up into the mountains. First of all he has PRETTY good prices:
1 C02 fill for $1 (any size)
$17 for a bag of 500 paintballs
$5 for a PMI Trracer pump
$10 for a F-4 Illustrator.
BYOP and no field charge. And sorry! He doesn't fill N2 or Compressed air! So bring your c02 tanks!
The problem though is that he doesn't fill the tanks full. And that can lead to disaster on the battlefield when you have no co2. AND YES, IT IS A "BIGGIE" when you dont got any Co2 and your game is cut short, plus its happened in the Summer,Fall, Spring AND Winter games I've played in. So the temperture has NOTHING to do with it. And there is no refs, so everybody is on the honor system. And be prepared for rough ravines and other outdoor obsticles. This field leans more toward the "War" type of additude, so get those camo jackets and prepare for battle. And come in your speedball jersy, makes you an easier target. Still an awesome 1 of a kind field. Highly reccomend. >:-)

Hinkle- Never played there but I've seen their field and their prices and it looks really bad.
Like the other people said, this is not a field where you get charged to play and you have to use their paint and their guns and stuff. This is a field you play at where you meet at Stan's house at 11:00 and he takes you up to the fields in his truck to play. You are only charged if you need air or paint or if your renting a gun. Now that I have that out of the way, the field is rec. There is no speedball and there used to be two fields but one was closed down. Now we can only play at one of them which is the better one anyway. Air is one dollar for the whole day. I do not know the paint prices because I have never bought paint from him. If you go you might want to find a good place to lock your stuff up especially if you have a nice gun because there have been things stolen....I always chain my stuff up to a tree. Make sure you bring good shoes for running and hiking with because theres a lot of walking and running over steep hills, especially if you choose to follow Stan. Don't bring much paint because you won't need it. 500 is plenty for the whole day. I do not reccomend you bring your Angel or Cocker, it will get ruined. Bring something you dont mind getting dirty, like a Tippmann. Wear camou. The only major flaw is that some of the people are a bit annoying. If you live in the area then its definetly worth it to come up here and see how you like it.
This is a very different field compared to others. It doesnt have obsticales like a speeball field. It only has natural objects like: hills; ditches, trees, bushes, ect. It's not located in the city, its in a canyon. It might be getting closed because of the native amreican land grant going on in the area. One field is already closed but Stan (the guy who runs the place) has a backup field. The second and the backup field are still in operation though. You can buy paint and Co2 there. Stan has a little shop. It mostly has Tippmann and ACI accesories. The paint can range from $10 for about 100 to 200 rounds to about $60 for some high class 2000 rounds of paint. The Co2 fills are $1 for a single fill and $2 all day on day of game. Sorry no nitro for you HPA players. Well if your in the area of Los Alamos (within 2 hours or so) and you are willing to sacrifice some time to drive up here, then do it. Trust me its worth it. Stan and the crew will show you a good time. Check out his website. you can set up a personal party game or you can come for an open game...its your choice

PBA (slightly better orgainized, more expensive, closer to Albuquerque players)
Hinkle's (the worst)
PB City (slightly better organized, morex expensive, closer to ABQ players)
I like to alternate between Los Alamos, PB City, and PBA
First, this is not really a field like PBA, Hinkle's, or PB City in the sense that it is NOT done as a business and profit. It's BYOP, BYOM(arker), and bring your food/water, etc. You can buy paint for $48 a case for big ball if you preorder and CO2 is $1for all day. Games are held on BLM land with permission including the typical mix of capture the flag, attack and defend, downed pilot, etc., and we've even played civil war a couple of times. The terrain is very mountainous with lots of trees, ravines, rocks, etc. that really add to the day. Be ready for good day of excercise, especially if you choose to try to follow Stan, who runs the games. There are no refs, so everyone is on the honor system, and as can be expected things aren't always honorable. I've seen crowd size range from the 20's to as many as 70, with experience varying from long-time players to the first time player. The type and location of play is actually very accomodating of such a variety. In the years I have played there I've never shot evan close to 500 rounds in a day; the play style is much more strategic with a lot of positioning and markmanship rather the pray and spray. I really recommend you try this place, especially if you are within a couple of hours drive.
