*phone was dead, no pics, sorry* What a freakin day. Pico has all the terrain open and it was awesome. There was some thin cover up top, but for those brave enough to venture out in the cold stashes were to be found. There was a lot of ungroomed terrain available to rip. Going off the peak upper pike, upper KA, and fourty niner were all skiing decent. A little thin with some dirt and rocks sticking out but enough of the soft stuff around to be playful. You weren’t simply scraping your way down the hill. If you made your way to the sunset glades there were plenty of powder still available. I personally, stumbled on it by accident and made 2 failed attempts to find it again stubbornly ignoring all trail maps. Now for the goods, outpost was open. It must have been closed since the Christmas storm because I was getting untracked powder after lunch at the outpost. Every trail on that side was better than the next. If you have the ability to head over, and the conditions hold, I highly recommend it. They kept it open for an extra hour. I must have gone non stop for 3 hrs up and down the lift. No lines and great conditions! What a day. For the other MAX passers like me, Pico often does not get the respect it deserves. Mostly because it is seen as Killington’s red-headed-stepchild. However, they keep the advanced terrain mostly ungroomed and have great natural terrain separation for different skill levels. If you are thinking about heading there, I highly recommend it. It has more soul than the other ski areas on the max pass, that’s for sure. Shout out to@weatherman. He constantly pushes the gains that can be had from a ski club. As a result I joined a ski club that has a lodge strategically located within 45 min of the 4 MAX pass mountains and only cost $27 a night. I have stayed over twice already this season and have already recouped my membership fee. It is a great way to get the most out of your pass.
