Snow Conditions Update
Posted by Pico Mountain on February 16, 2012
It’s been a warm winter in Vermont, and Mother Nature hasn’t paid Pico the snowy visits we’d like. That said, our Mountain Operations team has endured, and we’ve had great skiing and riding ever since our December opening day. Even given the conditions of one of the warmest winters in recent years, Pico’s snowmakers have carried on without hesitation, and they were able to lay down the many feet of snow they’d been planning for Pico’s trails despite the difficult temperatures.
In any normal winter season, most resorts have either completed snowmaking production or have dropped to minimal snowmaking; snowfall has kicked in and Mother Nature has covered the trails. Historically, by this time of year, the natural snowfall has been significant, and the groomers can take over and maintain the slopes for the remainder of the season.
Thankfully, our mountain ops team has been able to build a solid base on our open trails and we will continue to provide good surface conditions as we head into one of the snowiest months of the year, March. Our groomers are standing at the ready, armed with years of experience and various tools and implements, prepared to keep our trails in top shape no matter the weather.
Rest assured, when the snow arrives, the ropes will drop on additional terrain. We plan to continue skiing and riding through April 1, conditions permitting.
