A wonderful place for beginners and families who love to ski. The ski school is just wonderful and gets first timers comfortable skiing.

We hiked up the Sherburne Pass Trail to top of Pico Peak. Trail is really nice, although there are few vistas. Most of trail goes up to ridge through mixed hardwood and conifer forest. Hiking time round trip is about 2 - 2 1/2 hours.

This "small" resort has a base elevation of 2000' which is significantly higher than Killington, Sugarbush, or Gore. The Peak is close to 4000'. I bring this up because elevation obviously impacts snow levels. Paid $25 per adult lift ticket today with food donation. The snow was ok but a bit icy which is common for the end of the... More

Fun! We bought discount tickets from Groupon. Great deal. Easy to find parking on a busy Saturday morning. Good hotel for an inexpensive weekend. There was staff outside greeting people and directing them where to go. Redeeming the coupons for 2 days skiing was quick and easy.Mine came with rental equipment. It was so easy, fast and well organized we... More

Just went yesterday. I was please toy surprised at the lack of people skiing. The top of the mountain looked pretty icy. I don't venture to the top as I was just looking for a nice easy day with my nephew. The guys at the rental counter are well versed and top notch. The lady that waited on us at... More

Many reviews I have read speak of Pico being nearly void of skiers, even on the weekends. I had not skied there since my far distant teens, and after a friend and I found excellent Liftopia discounts, we got up early on a recent Sunday morning and traveled 3 hours from central Connecticut to Pico. As we turned into the... More

This is a small mountain, 57 trails, about a 5-10 minute drive from Killington Mountain. We had a two day lift ticket that worked at both Killington and Pico Mountain so we decided to ski one day at Killington and another at Pico. We skied at Pico on a Sunday during President's day weekend and was surprised on how empty... More
