Pico was awesome today. Never waited more than 5 minutes at the high speed quads and everything else was ski on. 100% open and with awesome conditions. The mountain has so many old school trails similar to Gore's Ski Bowl. If you hit Pico after a big storm when it is 100% open, it does not disappoint.
icy and fast on top lower mountain had softer snow. some decent coverage on the sides of the trails. the moguls have snow on top and ice in middle. even the glades had icy spots. thought it would be better after last weeks snow
Pico was excellent today. Only 15 trails, but conditiond were great on everything. The snow on most seemed pretty deep as opposed to dust on crust. Of course the crowds were very light so i cant say how it will hold up for the holiday. Pico is closed tuesday an wednesday.
Bought tickets on line for $35.00. Not too bad, i think.
It is no secret this season’s weather has challenged us at every turn. The lack of natural snow, or even consistently cold temperatures, has left us with limited terrain and diminished business levels. With no relief evident in the long-range forecast, we have made the difficult decision to reduce Pico Mountain’s operating schedule to Saturdays and Sundays only. After Friday February 26, for the remainder of the 2015-16 season, Pico will not be open midweek.
That was the bad news, but now here’s some good news: Monday through Friday, beginning February 29, 2016, Pico Mountain Season Passes and pre-purchased lift tickets will be accepted at Killington Resort.
