perfect old school chilled out mountain
Feb 2020
LOVED Pico mountain- so friendly, chilled out and welcoming. Perfect for families. The scale of it was great - only one parking lot, you park and walk to the resort, there's a room to eat in if you bring your own lunch. All trails lead to the lodge so its simple for kids to navigate

Great Family Mountain in Vermont
Feb 2020 • Family
Living in Vermont, we have many options for ski areas, with Pico being our favorite. My daughter is a snowboarder and my husband and I ski. We live close, so we spend quite a bit of time at Pico. The staff and instructors are very friendly and helpful. My daughter had taken private lessons at Pico to work on becoming more comfortable snowboarding on more difficult trails and her instructor is fantastic. The money for the hour private lesson is expensive, but worth it. I believe that a group lesson is much more adorable if you have enough people. The mountain is big enough to really enjoy and navigate, but not too big to get lost. Even when Pico is busy, it is still very easy to find parking and have a great day. The conditions rarely disappoint us.

Amazing monoskiing
Jan 2020 • Couples
I’d like to give a shout out to Frank and our amazing volunteer Richard that help us this past weekend with ADA monoskiing! The program is amazing and although it was a busy day with many guest I felt our needs were beyond met! The respect and gratitude from everyone working and volunteering was over the top incredible!

Great people! Great hikes!
Nov 2019 • Friends
We skied Pico for years. Old style, classic, hill. The hike up Pico Mt. is incredible. Uphill to the ridge, great views. Ridge walk through beautiful forest. Out onto ski trail at 2 miles with incredible views. Back into the woods for the last 0.4 to the summit. Great place to visit.

Pico is nice
Mar 2019 • Couples
We certainly have a good time skiing at Pico. We'd rather hit a mountain like this than a mega ski center. Good people, decent prices, and a lot of terrain.

Great little big mountain
Mar 2019 • Family
Always a good time skiing Pico, great place for the kids to learn to ski and when they get older you can let them go on their own because all the trails leed to the same spot. They have a great lodge and bar the bartenders and wait staff are excellent. The food in the cafeteria is good and at the bar the food is always good.

Efficient ski mountain
Mar 2019 • Friends
We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Pico. The runs were a good length. The biggest plus is that you can get all over the mountain without having to do a lot of cat tracks(ie. those slow switch backs that don't qualify as skiing)! There are runs for every level of ability. We like The Outpost the best!

Pico Mountain Ski Area (Pico) is one of Vermont’s first commercial ski/snowboard resorts. Founded by the Mead family in 1937, the 189-hectare area features 57 runs (30 kilometres) serviced by seven lifts (two high-speed quads, two triples, two doubles, and one surface lift carrying up to 11,079 people per hour) and a total vertical of 600 metres (1,209 metres minus 610 metres). Approximately 22% of the runs are easy (green), 49% are intermediate (blue), and 28% are difficult. There is also one freestyle terrain park (orange). Pico’s longest run, “Pike”, is four miles. Family favourites include “Branco”, “Expressway”, “Pike”, “Sunset”, “Forty Niner”, “Fools Gold”, “Gold Rush”, “Bushwacker”, “Swinger”, and “Ace of Clubs”. Passes at Pico are $85 for adults (19-64), $72 for seniors (65-79), and $65 for youth (7-18). It is open Thursday through Monday (daily during peak periods). Key lifts start at 9:00 in the morning (8:30 on Saturdays and Sundays). Lift operations cease at 4:00 (no night skiing). Pico was purchased by POWDR, one of North America’s largest ski operators, in December of 1997 when it was in receivership (POWDR also owns nearby Killington Mountain Resort & Ski Area). Note that most passes purchased for Killington are also valid at Pico, but Pico passes, unfortunately, are not valid at Killington. Lessons (private, adult, and youth), rentals (skis, poles, snowboards, bindings, boots, and helmets), and childcare ($99 per day) are all available on site for a fee. Look for Pico in Vermont near Rutland. Its season runs mid-December through late-March. On average, the ski/snowboard area receives 640 centimetres of snow per year. Pico has snowmaking on 75% of its runs. Parking is free.

overlooked but fantastic mountain
Feb 2019 • Family
We skied here for an afternoon as it was included with our Kiillington lift tickets.
We really enjoyed the mountain and it was also completely empty when we were there. It is work spending some time here it you are skiing Killington.
