Pico Race Arena – Open Weekends
You’ve seen the pros compete for the gold – now learn what it takes to follow in their footsteps. At the Pico Race Arena on Lower Pike, guests can take runs through a timed race arena in an attempt to practice carving around gates, improve their time and practice control and stability. One run is only $2, but a full day of racing costs only $15. A real pro can shave a little time off each run – can you?
Ski & Stay Packages
There’s no better time to take advantage of Pico than mid-week, when lift lines are down and guests can score more time in the snow. With Pico Ski & Stay Packages ranging from two to seven days, guests can book lodging and tickets together to save big on both. Plus, for every adult mid-week ticket purchased, we’ll throw in a free mid-week youth ticket. Its value priced skiing and snowboarding for the whole family at one of the tallest mountains in New England!
About Pico Mountain:
With more vertical drop than 80% of New England mountains, Pico Mountain offers mogul trails, glades, groomed cruisers and the new Triple Slope Terrain Park, all of which lead back to one classically-styled Vermont base lodge. First-timers can enjoy gentle learning trails and a new tow-rope, while more advanced skiers and snowboarders will enjoy finding their way into the glades on a fresh powder day. Our 50 trails, 214 skiable acres and seven lifts (including two high-speed quads) mean our slopes are never crowded and our guests get the most out of their days.
