Overview

Thanksgiving Day, 2012, marks 75 years of making turns at Pico Mountain. In 1937 on Thanksgiving morning, Pico Mountain Ski Resort 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 52 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.
