Old Man Winter has continued to blanket Pico Mountain in white – over three feet in the last seven days! The combination of snowmaking around the clock and natural snow allowed Ski Patrol to open 100% of Pico’s trails.

All the snow has also lured amateur skiers and riders to the sidecountry in search of fresh powder outside the resort’s area boundaries, a decision that could lead to a search involving the Vermont State Police, Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, members of the Pico ski patrol, Killington Volunteer Fire Department and a local volunteer search and rescue team as well as an unplanned stay in the woods.
