PSC Parking Policy

NEW Pico Mountian Parking Poilicy

Please note that Pico Mountain will be instituting a new parking policy for the lot in front of the Club and Little Pico Triple that directly impacts many of us.  Pico will be installing these signs in the near future along with many more Handicap Parking signs.  The new parking restrictions will be as follows:

 

  • Additional Handicap signs/spaces along the front of Triple.  This is in part to accommodate our good friends at Vermont Adaptive so please be respectful.  There should be no parking at all, even for drop-off.
  • There will be no parking allowed in the square lot outside the Club including along the condos on both ends.  Yes, this includes the east side along the snow banks.
  • Loading and unloading will be permitted where posted [see sample signs] and will be limited to 10 minutes.

 

Thank you for following this new policy of our host mountain, and ensuring all guests and friends who come to Pico do so as well.  If you have any questions please feel free to talk to a Board member.

NEW Parking Signs Will Be Posted This Weekend.

Thanks Volunteer Painters!

Painters

Thanks to the nine volunteers for the Pico Ski Club paint day on Saturday, June 7!

We accomplished a number of projects, including the front overhang as well as entrance ways, concrete walls, picnic table, wood racks, windows trimmed and touch up around the building. 

We still have approximately 30-40 hours of projects to be completed late summer/early fall, and will be announcing upcoming work days to accomplish these additional tasks.

Thanks to all the Social Committee Volunteers this season!

As we know, volunteers are what makes the Pico Ski Club tick.  Without people pitching in, giving their time, and helping to make events happen, it wouldn’t be the organization it is.

Helen Kinsman and Linda Lambert, Social Co-Chairs, would like to thank the following members for their willingness to volunteer their time during the Harvest Social, Wine and Cheeses, Pot Luck dinners, and the Spring Fling events held this season.

Volunteerism is the key to a successful Pico Ski Club

The Pico Ski Club has been a successful organization for more than 60 years because members volunteer for numerous activities and events, such as the annual Ski Swap, Social Activities, Club Maintenance, Race Crew, etc.

Additionally, membership dues are affordable because everyone is pitching in. Every year when you renew your membership, you’re asked to indicate which event and/or activities you would be willing to assist. Unfortunately though, many members have failed to fulfill their volunteer commitments when called upon by the various committee chairs. The failure of the membership to lend a hand increases the time commitment and pressure for those that do volunteer on a regular basis. 

Without volunteer support from the membership, the Pico Ski Club may ultimately have to reduce the benefits afforded to the membership. This could mean fewer Social Events, overall reduction in Ski Swap hours and dates, and deferred maintenance projects that in the long run could end up costing the club thousands of dollars.
