Pico needs investments, too

Dear Editor,

As a long-time Pico & Killington pass holder I am excited to learn of the millions of dollars being invested at Killington. But what are you doing for Pico?

I first skied PicoPeak in the winter of 1959 and have raised my children and now grandchildren on those slopes. They eventually moved over to the big mountain (Killington) but they always return to Pico. What’s missing at Pico is investment; it needs money and attention to continue to remain the amazing resort that we have known for all these decades.

A good start would be to replace the Glade Lift that was removed decades ago. This would be a huge benefit to Pico and its family of skiers. For years now investment for new lifts, lodges, snow- making and other improvements are being directed at Killington. WHY?  It is draining the blood out of Pico.

Please, Mike Solimano and Killington-Pico Resort, don’t neglect Pico!
