Full review

In a nutshell, Pico is an overall halfway decent mountain. But with Killington 5 minutes away, it makes Pico feel small and boring. There are few expert trails, and they're all short and icy. The grooming is terrible, I was skiing on what felt like pebbles- and this was with three inches of new powder!!! The one terrain park is super easy and is on a green circle slope. It should be moved to a slope with a steeper pitch for more speed, and it would turn the current slope into a beginners paridise! Every lift is old and slow, even the high-speed quads. I think the only reason Killington bought Pico was to connect the two and make Killington over 1,000 acres of skiable terrain. Now that the connection has been abandoned, Killington should sell Pico and use the money to make improvements on lifts and snowmaking. Don't go to Pico, spend the extra 20$ and go to the overcrowed Killington.
