Pico Mountain

In 1937 on Thanksgiving morning, Pico Mountain 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 57 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 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 make 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 and more. For those seeking a social atmosphere, visit the Last Run Lounge for lunch and après entertainment on the weekends. With its laid back pub atmosphere, crackling fireplace and views of the sun setting on the mountain, it’s the perfect place to wrap up a classic day of skiing in Vermont.
