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

Pico Peak is simply beautiful in both Summer and Winter. It is a must visit when in the Rutland/Killington area. From Rutland, when you travel through Mendon, don't forget to stop in the Country store on the right when you first get into Mendon. Pico Mountain itself has some really great restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. If you... More

This is a nice mountain with some good runs for a mid sized Vt mountain. The vertical is almost 2000 feet making for some nice runs. Locals like it here. Not as crowded as the more popular mountains, such as Killington that is nearby. The lower lodge allows picnic lunches.

My daughter loved this mountain. She had a lot of fun, and since she is still young (12) she was able to map out her course and just have a blast all day long. Would go again
