Posted by Pico Mountain on January 17, 2013
The January thaw has come and gone, and Pico Mountain is already back in action and ready for winter mode!

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.
