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

First time skiing in New England. It wasn't a huge place but it kept us busy for 1 day, even early in the season. NO LINES for tickets, rentals, or lifts all day, on a Saturday! Didn't have a great lesson experience; got put into a group with 2 others at a very different ski level than us.

Almost a perfect combination of great terrain, a fantastic lodge, fast lifts, and the unspoiled charm of small mountain experience that is large in size with good vertical. It seems there are a greater number of skiers than boarders which I find more appealing. Best yet, cost is reasonable, the mountain is nicely groomed, and the crowds are at a... More

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.
