Mountain Profile

Big Mountain Skiing, Small Mountain Charm.

Only here can you experience the thrill of a large mountain with the personal touch of a small ski area. 

Pico Classic Picks

  • At more than one mile long, Pike, Pico’s longest trail, begins at the summit and ends at the base lodge.
  • Skiers and riders can also try the blue square 49er or winding black diamond trails like Summit Glades, Upper KA and Sunset 71 straight from the summit.
  • More experienced skiers and riders can take a shot at the mountain’s steepest trail, Giant Killer – a double-black diamond.
  • For gladed skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts, Pico offers classic tree skiing on Doozie, Outlaw and Birch Woods to name a few.
  • First-time skiers and snowboarders can take advantage of their own chairlift and rope tow, serving two gentle learning trails at the Bonanza Learning 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 the Triple Slope Terrain Park.
