Pico Mountain Uphill Map

Pico Mountain is a popular spot for uphill training and for starting backcountry tours around Killington. The resort allows all-day uphill travel on this and one other route on Pico, granting some nice options for inbounds touring. This route follows some high-traffic runs, so it’s maybe best during off hours. Pico’s other uphill, the Glade route, is less direct but can offer more solitude.


To follow this main route to the summit of Pico, you’ll take Lower Pike tral and 49er trail, staying to climbers left the whole way up. It’s a rather sustained ascent on blue groomers, getting steepest on the upper mountain. From the top you could ski down any open run during operating hours, but when the resort is not open uphillers should descend the same way.

Before you go uphill at Killington, you will check their Uphill Travel info and secure the proper pass. As of 2021/2022 season, an uphill armband is required. You can then check current conditions and uphill status on their website as well.
