This is the 3rd year in a row we have visited. The mountain is smaller compared to neighboring Killington/Stratton or Okemo, however its just perfect for families with kids who actually want to learn. I strongly suggest a long weekend and the ski programs for youngsters. We used the first time ski program last year and while they are "group"... More

Pico is a good choice for weekend skiing when you are in the Killington area. There are nice skiing trails, not big number of them, but a good variety for all skiing levels.

Enjoyed everything about this mountain, especially the bartenders. We can not wait to be back on that resort

Prices and flexibility of pricing was better at Pico, as it is a "smaller" mountain. I liked the feel better, and enjoyed the family environment

Many people think of Pico as the neglected little brother next to Killington, and as far as I'm concerned let them think that. I've been skiing since the 1960's, and Pico is one of the last ski areas that still evokes some atmosphere from that era. The trails hearken back to the classic New England ski runs; tighter, narrower trails... More

Today's skiing was just not much fun. Rain and fog pretty took over the day. The rain must have melted the snow. The amount of bare patches was unbearable. I am pretty sure there wasn't much of a base layer to begin with. The trails that did have snow were pretty much ungroomed. Had a hard time going from skiing... More

No crowds, cheaper than Killington, good deals can be found if you ski mid-week. Although their snow making capacity isn't as high as Killington, Pico's got lots of trails that are well maintained, and you don't have to wait forever in line. Even on the New Year's Holiday, you could ski straight down to the quad lift and wait for... More

Went to Killington our first two days in Vermont. Gave this place a try on our last day and wished we went here the whole time! Views on the slopes were amazing and the best part, NO CROWDS!! Tons of awesome trails.

On a clear Monday morning in October, my husband and purchased ski lift tickets and rode to the top of Pico Mountain, barely edging out a busload of school children on a field trip! We didn't realize there were hiking trails at the top of Pico (we should have done our homework), so we did just a short hike (didn't... More

We went on the 7.6 mile circular hike from The Long Trail Parking Lot opposite the Inn. The hike takes you up the Sherburne trail around Pico Peak. We did not go to the top because it is very commercialized. Instead we went around the mountain and joined up with the Appalachian Trail. The trails are dog friendly and there... More
