Pico is a small ski area (although larger than many eastern ski areas) especially when compared to their next door neighbor Killington. The locals love it because it is a fun mountain without the super steep slopes of Killington, and the crowd usually can be...More

Great family ski area one of the first in the country!!! On the back side of Killington. Well groomed trails, not far from Rutland that has good hotels and dining !

Seems to be a mountain for locals because travelers tend to go to Killington which is visible from the summit. Quiet and friendly atmosphere with more skiing than snowboarding. The mountain has a decent amount of glades but not a lot of terrain parks.

The mountain is very spacious and allows you to escape the crowds that are at larger resorts.The summit, at 3,967 feet, has multiple trails of various skill levels to allow an easy descent to the Pico Lodge at the base.

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.

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...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...More
