While stuck in the K-Mart area, I finished early one day and wanted to ski more, but was sick of the rat race. As I drove back past Pico, on a whim, I figured the snow gods would provide me with parking if I was destined to check Pico out -> A space popped up in the second row, so I headed to their summit. I never skied Pico before, but they had nice powdery trails thru the woods (from the summit) that no one else seemed to notice. It was a beautiful afternoon, away from all the crowds and noise.
Their trails would not pose a particular challenge to most of you. But, I wanted to mention it, in case you are ever stuck in the K-Mart area, and want a tranquil, enjoyable experience - it was one of my best days this winter
