Thanksgiving Day, 2012, marks 75 years of making turns at Pico Mountain. In 1937 on Thanksgiving morning, Pico Mountain Ski Resort came to life with only a 1,200 foot rope tow powered by a Hudson motor car engine and a lot of love. 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. No other big mountain has such small mountain charm, and no athletes love their mountain quite like Pico skiers and riders.

Families and skiing traditionalists now enjoy 52 trails 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.

Whether you choose scenic glades or gentle, winding trails, Pico Mountain has it all. And, if you’re willing, we can teach you how to enjoy it all. Our Snow Sports School offers specialized learning programs for everyone from children and first-timers to seasoned pros, all created with quality and value in mind.

Pico’s finer points include its classic New England base lodge with a giant stone fireplace, and the Last Run Lounge, with decor reminiscent of the first decades of skiing. It offers the convenience of two high-speed express quads and four lifts within 100 yards of the base area and lodging village. Ski shop, rental/repair shop, food court, lounge and waffle shop. Seventy-five percent snowmaking.

      Rented Condo at Pico because we could easily access Killington from there. Ironically, we seemed to enjoy our day at Pico better...
