Club Opening/Pico Opening Day

Snowmaking has kicked off for the 2017-2018 winter season! The guns have been blasting on 49er/Gold Rush/Lower Pike over the last few days and the snowcapped mountain builds the excitement for opening day which is slated for December 15, 2017 (weather conditions permitting).

In addition, the Pico Ski Club will be opening on December 16th.

See you there!

Volunteerism is the key to a successful Pico Ski Club

The Pico Ski Club has been a successful organization for more than 60 years because members volunteer for numerous activities and events, such as the annual Ski Swap, Social Activities, Club Maintenance, Race Crew, etc.

Additionally, membership dues are affordable because everyone is pitching in. Every year when you renew your membership, you’re asked to indicate which event and/or activities you would be willing to assist. Unfortunately though, many members have failed to fulfill their volunteer commitments when called upon by the various committee chairs. The failure of the membership to lend a hand increases the time commitment and pressure for those that do volunteer on a regular basis. 

Without volunteer support from the membership, the Pico Ski Club may ultimately have to reduce the benefits afforded to the membership. This could mean fewer Social Events, overall reduction in Ski Swap hours and dates, and deferred maintenance projects that in the long run could end up costing the club thousands of dollars. 

Race Program

Race Registration OPEN!

Located at the base of Pico Mountain in the central Green Mountains of Vermont, the Pico Ski Club's mission is to provide an opportunity for youth to become successful individuals and to achieve their personal goals through their participation in ski racing. Participants need not be members of the Pico Ski Club. 

The Pico Ski Club is dedicated to providing an athletic environment which ensures each participant is given the opportunity to excel and pursue his/her dreams in alpine ski racing. Coaches will help educate athletes in proper athlete management, goal setting, mental skills training, dryland preparation, on-snow training, race preparation and summer planning. 

The Pico Ski Club's programs are offered for kids age 5 to 20, and no previous racing experience is required. However, U14+ participants should be very strong all-moutain skiers. All program participants must be comfortable skiing all types of terrain and must be able to safely load, ride, and pull the safety bar down and unload the chairlift by themselves.
