Nestled in the northern Adirondack foothills, Titus Mountain is blessed with abundant natural snow and a sheltered, northeast-facing trail network. The mountain operates a total of 10 lifts: Two 3-Passenger Chairlifts, Six 2-Passenger Chairlifts and Two Handle-Tow Surface Lifts. These lifts service 44 trails and glades, 2 terrain parks, a Learning Center and Snow Tubing Park. Titus stretches across 3 mountains with over 200 acres open for skiing & snowboarding. Our 2025-ft. summit elevation provides folks with plenty of room to spread out. Lift lines are rare at Titus.
Upper and Lower Mountain lodges offer warmth, comfort, good food and refreshing beverages. The Lower Mountain Lodge was remodeled and expanded last year. This year Titus added a new stone patio area with firepits, a band-stand and outdoor seating. Ticket sales, customer service, equipment rental and repair, the retail store and our full-service Learning Center are located at the base of the Lower Mountain. Wireless internet access is also provided at no charge in our Lower Mountain base area. Fully staffed first aid stations are maintained on both the Upper and Lower Mountains. Parking is provided at the bases of both the Upper and Lower Mountains, and our Lower Mountain parking has been expanded for the coming season.
The Upper Mountain trail network is connected to the Middle & Lower Mountain network via a ski-through highway tunnel, as well as a ski-over highway overpass. The Upper Mountain lodge has been improved for 2013-2014, with the addition of a new roof, wall-to-wall carpeting & upgraded restroom facilities. 70% of terrain is serviced by snowmaking. New management is committed to a long-range project that will bring continuous improvement to both our grooming and snowmaking. Terrain ranges from green to double-black diamond. The Lower Mountain offers night skiing & snowboarding until 10pm on Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings.
Ready for a different kind of downhill? Check-out Titus Mountain’s Terrain Parks. Ride the rails and hit the jumps: there are lots of great features to explore with a Novice Park to learn in and an Advanced Park for more experienced riders. The Parks are open day & night. Helmets recommended.
Tubing is available weekends, holidays & Fri.-Sat. evenings. Group rates are offered, and large groups of 50 or more may reserve the Park for a one-of-a-kind private outing during off-hours. There is a warming station at the top for the comfort and convenience of both tubers and spectators. Food, beverages and rest facilities are conveniently located in the adjacent Lower Mountain lodge. You must be at least 42 inches tall to ride a Snow Tube.
Generations of skiers and boarders have started at Titus. The protected slope of the center is always kept carefully groomed and it features both a surface lift & chairlift designed with beginners in mind. Our teaching staff is competent with all ages and abilities, and is dedicated to continuous development under the guidance of the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors (AASI). Lesson plans are available for both groups & individuals. Public & private schools use facilities at Titus to provide instruction to their students.
MOON VALLEY MAPLE
Last season Titus built a sugarhouse right next to our Learning Center, put 6000 taps into operation & made 2000 gallons of maple syrup. This season, production will grow significantly. Late-season visitors to Titus can look forward to enjoying fresh-cooked pancakes & waffles, covered in syrup still warm from the evaporator while soaking-up the sunshine.
