About The Mountain
One of Pico’s best aspects is that guests can enjoy the experience of a large mountain with the personal touch of a smaller ski area.
Pike, Pico’s longest trail, begins at the summit and ends outside the base lodge. From the summit, skiers and riders can also try the blue square 49er, or winding and narrow black diamond trails like Summit Glades, Upper KA and Sunset 71. More experienced skiers and riders can take a shot at the mountain’s steepest trail, Giant Killer - a double black diamond. For the glade skiing and riding enthusiasts, Pico offers tree skiing on Doozie and Birch Woods.
First-time skiers and snowboarders can enjoy their own chairlift and handle tow, serving two gentle learning trails at the Bonanza area. For cruising and carving, check out the green circle and blue square trails off the Golden Express Quad, including Fool’s Gold, Prospector and Gold Rush. Riders and skiers working on their freestyle skills will be right at home in our Triple Slope Terrain Park.
