Pico Mountain Ski Resort
It was in 1937 on a Thanksgiving morning that the legend the people of Vermont have come to know and love called the Pico Mountain Ski Resort was born. At the time, it was only equipped with a 1,200-foot rope tow that was powered with a Hudson car engine, passionate skiers still loved it. Since that time all those years ago, a lot has changed. This love and passionate that made skiers love this resort all those years ago still exists today and is still as powerful as ever. There is no other resort in Vermont with as much charm as Pico Mountain Ski Resort.
The Big Draw
One of the biggest reasons why people are drawn to the Pico Mountain Ski Resort is because they get to enjoy a huge mountain that still has a small ski area charm.
Pike is the longest trail at the resort. It starts at the summit of the mountain and it ends at the base lodge. At the summit, skiers and riders can also check out the blue square 49er if they want to. There are also wide and narrowed black diamond trails for skiers to enjoy if they so desire. These black diamonds include Upper KA, Summit Glades, and the Sunset 71. The more experienced riders and skiers can head over to the steepest trail which is called the Giant Killer. It is a double black diamond. The Birch Woods, Doozie, and Outlaw are also options if you are more of an enthusiast.
The Inside Scoop
If you are a first time skier or snowboard, you can still enjoy your own handle tow and chairlift. There are two gentle learning trails in the Bonanza Learning Area for beginners to enjoy. The blue square and green circles trails located off the Golden Express Quad are also great options if you are more of a freestyle skier or boarder. As you can see, there is a little bit of terrain for everyone. Regardless of your ski skill level, you should be able to find a patch of terrain you can have a good time on.
The central base area of Pico Mountain Ski Resort features a comfortable lodge with stone fireplaces. All of the trails converge to the lodge making it a great place for you to stay for the night. This makes it easy to stay connected with friends and family members even if you all have different skill levels when it comes to the slops.
