We decided to head east this year and experience skiing in Vermont. We chose Pico as our first ski hill. What a great choice. Part of our party needed lessons as they had not skied in a long time. The lessons were very helpful. The selection of hills for various levels of skiers was perfect. It snowed while we were... More

Pico doesn't get as crowded as Killington and has a little bit of every type of trail. Its glades skiing is wonderful. Only catch is there has to be a lot of snow since grooming is not their strong point. They also fail to open a couple of the lifts which require you to do a lot of hiking to... More

We are the type of people who appreciate Vermont in the summertime. We took the gondola and walked to the top of the mountain. What an invigorating experience looking over the beautiful mountainside.

We have skied here many times and it blows away Killington. Our ski club stayed at a condo here some people went to Killington, (very close). They came back and said it was crowded and not worth going. We all just stayed at Pico and absolutely loved it. We were all intermediate to advanced skiers and found the terrain challenging... More

This is a good place for kids and adults alike to learn to ski. It is small enough that you don't lose sight of your kids, and even during the President's day weekend, it did not feel to crowded. It also has trails of varying difficulty. The lodge has reasonably good food in a cafeteria layout. There are plenty of... More

I love this mountain! There's terrain for everyone here. This year we ended up skiing on a Monday after the only large snowfall of the season (15 inches over 48 hours), and it was MARVELOUS. Beautifully groomed, hardly anyone there, friendly staff...what's not to love? Every time I come up here I wonder why I'm not here more often. Great... More

My husband, two older teenagers, and myself spent five days at the Pico resort. My children took snowboarding lessons and spent all four days snowboarding in the different trails. We took skiing lessons. Everyone is very friendly. It is very family oriented. The lodge/restaurant is very cozy and there is an upstairs area where only adults can go since they... More

" RUNS PER DOLLAR ", Still go by these guidelines since I was a kid. Killington attracts the wanna be types from the city, who want to say they've been to Killington, but the real people ski PICO ! Pico owned by Killington, is just down the road, although restricted now by the days its open, a worthwhile venture when... More

Somehow we expected more, especially for the price. It wasn't crowded when we were there and we still had to wait 40 minutes at the ugly climbing wall- plywood spray painted blue with rock holds- and there was only one girl working and five people waiting to use the wall. The mini golf course is in sad shape, greens are... More
