KILLINGTON, Vt. (Nov. 11, 2010) – Skiers and riders who plan ahead this season can enjoy significant savings over walk-up window rates at Vermont’s PicoMountain. From the Express Card to Vermonter and New Hampshire Days, U.S. Military and group discounts, skiers and riders are offered many value opportunities to hit the slopes.
“Fewer than one-in-four skiers actually pay the full one-day window ticket rate,” stated Tracy Taylor, PicoMountain’s Director of Operations. “For those skiers and riders who plan ahead and want to hit the mountain, especially on non-peak days, we offer a number of great deals this season at PicoMountain.”
Pico Express Card
For skiers and riders hitting the mountain as little as two or more days this season, the Pico Express Cardoffers outstanding value and direct-to-lift access. Available for just $39, the Pico Express Card offers midweek skiing for $29, and $39 tickets on weekends and *Peak days.
The Pico Express Card offers “pay-as-you-ski” flexibility and works like a season pass (with the skier/riders picture on it), and is linked to a credit card. The first time each day the Express Card is scanned at the lift, the credit card is automatically charged the discounted rate. Available online or at the PicoMountainsales office through Feb. 1.
Pico Super Express Card
The Pico Super Express Cardis preloaded with three days of skiing and riding valid any day of the season for just $99. From the fourth day on, the Super Express Card will offer all the benefits of the Express Card. Available online or at the PicoMountainsales office through Dec. 16.

About Pico Mountain:
With more vertical drop than 80 percent of New Englandmountains, PicoMountainoffers mogul trails, glades, groomed cruisers and the new TripleSlopeTerrainPark, all of which lead back to one classically-styled Vermontbase lodge. First-timers can enjoy gentle learning trails and a new tow-rope, while more advanced skiers and snowboarders will enjoy finding their way into the glades on a fresh powder day. Our 50 trails, 214 skiable acres and seven lifts (including two high-speed quads) mean our slopes are never crowded and our guests get the most out of their days. Starting Jan. 1, 2011, PicoMountainwill become Vermont’s only non-smoking resort. Pico – Big Mountain Skiing, SmallMountainCharm. www.PicoMountain.com.
