Snow Report

Current Conditions

(as of Thursday, March 05, 2015)

It's Thursday again, Pico Fans, and that means time to head for Pico Mountain. Ladies save on Thursdays at Pico, with special Ladies Day pricing on tickets, rentals and lessons. Don't worry guys, you can save on Friday but, in the meantime, everyone can enjoy superb skiing and riding conditions at Pico.

Several inches of snow fell on Pico's off days, freshening packed powder surfaces and drifting into the glades. Pico groomers work through the night to make sure the conditions are top notch by first chair and today that means fresh corduroy on KA, 49er, Gold Rush, plus 15 other trails. Key lifts are scheduled from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

The winter season is going so well that we don't want it to end. That's right, we are staying open for an extra weekend, so join us on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday April 5 for the final lift-served Pico runs of the season and our closing festivities!

Our Uphill Travel program provides access to the summit every day of the week, but first take a look at the approved routes and be sure you have appropriate gear, including an Uphill Travel Pass.
