Crews at Pico cleanup after strong winds damage condo complexSeptember 03,2014By Bryanna Allen
KILLINGTON—Powerful winds swept through Pico ski resort around 9:45 p.m. Tuesday during a rainstorm, causing damage to two of the condominium buildings, the base lodge and surrounding trees and signs.
Parts of the condo roofs were torn off, windows were broken and several metal chimney caps—weighing a couple hundred pounds each—were tossed into the parking lot, according to Pico property manager Tom Rock.
Of the combined 60 rooms in the two buildings, only 10 of them were occupied and everyone was evacuated without injury and sent to the Killington Grand Resort Hotel for the time being.
The storm damage in Killington was isolated to the Pico resort area.
“It’s all very strange,” Rock said Wednesday morning. “It was just around here, no damage anywhere else.”
Rock said there is no estimated cost of the repairs as of yet and no next step has been planned.
“We’re just trying to clean up still,” Rock said.
