Opening weekend, the 15th to the 17th, the area will partner with the United Way of Rutland County to raise money to benefit the local community. Anyone who donates $10 or more to the United Way of Rutland County can receive a Pico Card, allowing adults to ski or ride for only $29 a day (excluding holidays). Juniors, young adults and seniors pay just $19 a day. Other benefits of the Pico Card include discounts at the sports center. The program was a great success last year and all involved are hoping for a repeat performance this year.
