Pico Mountain Announces Opening Day for the 2011-12 Winter Season
Posted by Pico Mountain on December 13, 2011
Skiers and riders rejoice, Pico Mountain will be welcoming the 2011-12 winter season with United Way Day on Saturday, December 17.
Pico Mountain will donate $20 from every $39 Pico Express Card purchased on Opening Day to the United Way of Rutland County. It’s a great chance for Pico Mountain and Pico fans to give back to an organization dedicated to the community we love so much.
United Way of Rutland County really appreciates the continued support from Pico Mountain and the community. United Way Day is a really creative way to benefit locals and get involved in helping a broad spectrum of people across the community. Pico’s United Way Day is a big part of our annual campaign; it goes to support everything from housing to health agencies.
The Pico Express Card retails for $39 and offers discounted lift ticket rates for the entire 2011-12 season. Cardholders receive mid-week lift tickets for just $29, and weekend/peak day tickets for $39. Like a season pass, the Express Card has a photo of the skier or rider, and is scanned directly at the lift. It’s linked to a credit card, which automatically charges the discounted lift ticket rate at the skier or rider’s first run of the day. Express Card price increases to $49 on December 26, 2011.
Pico Mountain is thrilled to partner with the United Way of Rutland County again this year and strives to support our community through various fund raisers and it’s great to way for our guest to be involved and give back.
The United Way of Rutland County is celebrating its 68th year as one of 1,400 nationwide non-profit chapters dedicated to serving their communities. Last year’s United Way Day at Pico raised more than $6,000 for the Rutland Chapter, and this year is off to a strong start raising nearly $5,000 at Pico’s Summer United Way Day.
Pico Mountain will open for its 74th season on December 17, 2011. Lift hours are 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, and 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekends and peak days.
