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

Whether you love cruising on Blue, or slamming ungroomed black, Pico has some - for $26. It's an old style New England hill: two high speed lifts and the rest traditional, one lodge with a whole room for bring your own lunch and little ski fashion. On a good snow day, as good as any mountain for half the price.

Since Pico became part of the larger Killington Ski Area it has lost the ambiance of the Friendly Mountain that it once held. Still a good value, but showing signs of wear and tear.

This is a really nice smaller mountain to take intermediate skiers. I've gone to most of the Northeastern ski resorts - taking my now 11-year-old daughter skiing since she was 4 - and this was one of the most enjoyable. I'd take my more aggressive ski buddies to Killington, Stratton, Gore, Whiteface, and Stowe, but for more family-oriented skiing, it's... More

The chilly morning temperature was fine since there was no wind. The conditions were great, with fresh powder and some snowmaking in progress. They groomed some runs and others were left natural to enjoy the powder. Our Liftopia purchase got me a ticket for $14 and my daughter one for $24 on this sunny Thursday, 1/15/15. The views were grand,... More
