In 1937 on Thanksgiving morning, a legend was born, Pico Mountain Ski Resort. Although it was humbly equipped with only a 1,200’ rope tow powered by a Hudson motor car engine, skiers – true skiers – loved it. No other big mountain has so much small charm.
Since then a lot has changed. But the love that began more than seventy years ago for this mountain still lives today, and it’s as strong as ever.
Families and skiing traditionalists now enjoy 52 trails and the Triple Slope Terrain Park serviced by seven lifts, including two high-speed detachable quads. Gentle learning terrain, smooth cruisers and classically narrow New England steeps can all be found at Pico Mountain. Even the most selective skiers and riders will be impressed by Pico’s vertical drop of 1,967’ – taller than 80% of Vermont ski areas.
Pico’s central base area, featuring a cozy lodge and stone fireplaces, is just another reason why this mountain is so special. Having all trails converge into one area makes it easy to stay connected with friends and family throughout the day. And when it’s time to recharge, you’ll find a variety of culinary options, including homemade waffles, sandwiches, kid-friendly meals as well as the Last Run Lounge.
Pico Mountain features slopeside lodging along with the Pico Sports Center that includes a 75-foot heated indoor pool, fitness classes, strength training machines and more.
