This is a family mountain with a completely different mood than next-door Killington. It's big. It's challenging. It's a place where you won't get run down by aggressive tourists and teenagers who flock next-door. Good trees. A decent terrain park. A fine mix of groomed and natural conditions. Go there. Ot better yet, go to Killington and leave this hidden... More

Pico is a family mountain (all trails eventually lead back to the one lodge) with challenging terrain and hidden secrets. It is old time skiing with the double Outpost Chair, a triple on Knomes Knoll and B Slope. Has a very small learning slope (Bonanza). Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sport have their headquarters here with volunteers teaching people with disabilities... More

Been skiing here for 55 years and keep coming back. It is the best mountain for families (only one base lodge - no one gets lost). There is challenging terrain and beginner terrain. This is a small mountain so you won't find the hundreds of trails you find at the bigger places but you also won't find the mobs of... More

This place feels like "home" compared to other nearby resorts (Killington, Okemo, Stratton, Sugarbush, etc). It may not have the trail count or acreage of the others, but it's got 2,000+ feet of vertical that you can ski all at once if you choose; a good assortment of difficulty levels; and a few absolutely delightful NE-style runs. The Gold Rush... More

We were here on a Sunday as they are now only open on the weekends. We had fun, and the place was almost a private mountain with very few skiers/snowboarders. The slopes that were open were in decent shape, and we had fun. However, by the afternoon it was all ice. I would happily come back when there is a... More

I have skied there 2 days after a snowstorm and still found powder! Its big and if you like long, long cruisers then Pico... More

We went to Pico so hubby could try out his new board I bought him for Christmas. We had a nice afternoon. I stayed in the lodge, had my lap top and enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows on this cold snowy day. The sun came out for a spell, but the wind was just brutle. It was... More

My husband and I spent a long weekend at Pico Mt. We drove all the way from Arlington,VA. We both enrolled for 1st time lessons. He was enrolled in ski & I enrolled for snowboarding.

Although this winter has been horrible as far as natural snow goes, Pico had a decent amount of trails open in late January. I enjoyed 6 mid-station and 6 peak runs on a very quiet Thursday. I enjoyed nicely groomed, solid intermediate trails all day. Definitely want to return when the snow gods dunp!
