Pico Mountain - 12/21/2014 Alba Adventures- Solstice - Season 2 ep 5

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

On solstice the Alba's decided to choose a home mountain for the season with that mountain being one of our favorites known as Pico Mountain.The snow this past weekend was needless to say amazing and it's only December.  There were many runs that had un-tracked snow and the glades offered some nice powder stashes that was fluffy and light.

 

Pico is owned by the same owners of Kilington (also known as "The Beast") but, that is only thing similar between these two mountains. Pico is smaller in that it has less runs but, it's actually in fact bigger in true vertical (http://mountainvertical.com/best-skiing-in-new-england.php).  This mountain has charm, incredible gladed and bump runs, and you can let your kids ski on their own without you worrying that much about their getting lost. Try that at Killington :). 

 

The people and the staff at Pico are willing to help and always have a smile. The lift lines are small and we believe the skiing to be better than that of it's big brother. 

 

There is no fancy lift line, gourmet meals or glitzy personalities here but, to be honest, I can do without that and hang with skiers and boarders that are there for the outdoors, to make turns and take laps at a great place in the East. 

 

Give Pico a try.  You might like it.

Great TR and video as always.  Your family is clearly taking full advantage of the early cold weather in the northeast this season.

 

Good to have the dates and "Alba Adventures" in the thread title.  I could add the dates to your other 2014 TR threads if you like.

Thank you! MarzNC. .That is a good idea. Harvey of NYSkiBlog.com suggest that and often changes my titles with the dates. If you could help. I hope to make turns with you this season.

Updated your TR thread titles from this season.

 

I'll let you know when I make plans to ski in the northeast on a weekend again. :)
