SAVE THE DATE: PSEF DINNER & SILENT AUCTION FUNDRAISER, Saturday, February 16, 2019
PSEF and Pico Ski Club Leadership are in the early stages of their newest campaign; the Junior Racing Development Venue on Little Pico. With the goal of advancing all of the PSC Race Program's preferred training and race venues, significant improvements are planned... All made possible by PSEF fundraising efforts and a generous grant received from the Killington World Cup Committee.
Trail modifications will improve the quality of training and racing terrain. Significant improvements to B-Slope for the 2018-2019 ski season are under way. To date: the chute has been cleared, the start relocated, the top of B-Slope widened and recontoured to adjust fall line and improve course sets. Stay tuned for the latest updates.
Each year Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum presents The Vermont Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame which honors athletes, pioneers and special contributors of Vermont skiing and snowboarding who promoted and/or contributed to the sport of skiing or riding in Vermont. This year, Pico Peak founders Janet and Brad Mead are amongst those being recognized for their accomplishments.
Killington will again be hosting another Women's FIS World Cup. On November 24th, Pico athletes along with hundreds of other children from ski programs all over Vermont, will be taking part in the Opening Ceremonies by participating in the VARA Parade of Athletes. SWIX and Killington will be providing each participant with a “special edition” Killington World Cup hat. What an honor to take part in this very prestigious event!!
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, ages 5 to 20, to become successful individuals and to achieve their personal goals through their participation in ski racing. Registration for the 2018-2019 Season is now open.

The sculpture was created with the collaborative support of The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center, Green Mountain Power's Rutland Blooms initiative, MKF Properties. Vermont Quarries and John and Sue Casella.
