About Pico Mountain:
In 1937 on Thanksgiving morning, a legend was born: Pico Mountain Ski Resort. Although it was humbly equipped with only a 1,200’ rope tow powered by a Hudson motor car engine, skiers – true skiers – loved it. No other big mountain has so much quaint charm. Since then a lot has changed. But the love that began over seventy-five years ago for this mountain still lives today, and it’s as strong as ever. Skiing traditionalists now enjoy 57 trails and the Triple Slope Terrain Park serviced by seven lifts, including two high-speed detachable quads. www.PicoMountain.com.
