Pico is a nice place, the mountain itself has the goods, especially in the trees. In bounds the expert terrain is very limited though. In general the terrain is limited and it does not handle crowds well, thankfully outside of holidays there are no crowds. There is no terrain park not even small features most times. The Snow making is a joke, in years past they had capacity issues but now this year with totally upgraded snowmaking capabilities they do not use it, pretty much 49er and pike see snow guns the rest get ignored it is mostly natural skiing. Pico ski school is great but all other facilities are kind of ignored. My advise is come here when natural snow is around and really only if you are looking for a family experience. We come with the kiddos because we like the ski school more than Killington and it is much easier to pick up and drop off without totally messing up your ski day. We like it but many of our more experienced friends will come for a day or so and get bored so go to Killington. The other issue they have is antiquated lifts that malfunction far too often. It does have charm though and is totally unlike Killington, it is a different world and one that unfortunately often is neglected. Sometimes it seems like they don't remember it is even there, if you do dense woods it skis a lot bigger than it seems and frankly has better and more straightforward terrain than anything outside of bear at K. If you are an inbounds skier and not a beginner do yourself a favor and go to Killington unless there has been a massive dump. The other problem is the that 49er gets totally destroyed as it is the only thing people go down. Pricing used to be really good but now at $89 for a day ticket it is a bit steep given the lack of snow making.
