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 are a Prime Rib lover, don't forget to dine in The Wobbly Barn right on Killington Road. The Prime Rib is the best around.

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

As advertised; "small mountain, big skiing" I couldn't agree more. All the trails lead back to the base lodge. The lower mountain trails are blue or green while the upper mountain has some great black diamond. The mountain also offers a program known as "Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports" working with folks who has disabilities. Sadly Pico is closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Too many people drive right on by on their way to Killington. I used to do the same thing myself. A big mistake, especially on "powder" days. Pico has longer trails, less people, and the lift tix are cheaper. The locals all ski Pico. Some nice glades. And now the redux "Giant Killer"......I'm jumpin in my car right now!!!!!!!
