As intermediate level skiers, this was out first time out skiing this year, so we chose Pico because its smaller than Killington and very easy to navigate. We found the number of green and blue runs to be very attractive as well as a great senior rate (be sure to ask) during off peak days. If you want Eastern U.S.... More

Pico offers lots of things to do for those who love the outdoors. The alpine slide is a long time favorite adventure. The hiking trails are great and the people are friendly and helpful.

The hike up to Pico's summit was a good 4 hour "loop" hike as trail heads are less than a 1/2 mile apart. Fairy-like foliage and great views of area at the top!

Even though Pico doesn't have the big slopes, it's price is right and I can go without committing my whole day.

Pico is Killington's little brother. It is owned by Killington and Killington lift passes are good here. There is a good amount of terrain, excellent child programs, grooming and snowmaking. Check ahead, Pico is not open every day in ski season. This place is a good alternative to the hustle of Kilington, especially for families.

Pico is the little sister to Killington. This mountain has great views from the peak of 360 degrees. The views range from being able to see Gore mountain in NY, to the Presidential Range in northern NH. Also to the north is Mt. Mansfield and Killington to the south a stones throw away. The lodge is a great old log... More

I have lived in Rutland all my life and I think that Pico is so beautiful. In the fall the leaves are all different colors and so pretty. In the winter you can ski there at a real good price. I don't ski, but I have heard the prices are great.

Be it with family or friends, or by yourself for a couple of runs, Pico is never disappointing. It is never overcrowded, has terrain for everybody. Want to avoid the big crowd of Killington? Pico is made for you. Powder days are heaven. It is (until now) a best kept secret , favored by locals. Don't forget to check out... More

If you want to get away from the industrially efficient atmosphere of a neighboring Killington-one of distinctively different merits- Pico Peak is much more in keeping with the qualities of Vermont well worth preserving. There's enough variety and challenge here for a few wonderful days on any level of efficiency, and on a midweek day, when the snow is just... More
