To Our Canadian Friends,
Happy 150th birthday Canada! We hope that you enjoy your holiday weekend and this milestone celebration.
In upstate New York, we have a strong orientation overall to the north vs. to the south. Many times, as we explain to our stateside friends where Malone, NY is, “near Canada” usually always enters the description. We have a bi-national bond here that can be seen daily, whether through familial ties to the north or Canadian tourism in our region.
Three local athletes will be participating in the upcoming Slopestyle and Big Air Events at Titus Mountain as part of the 37th Annual Empire State Winter Games. Daniel Badgley, Tucker Lawrence, and Jason Stepnoski will all represent Titus Mountain Family Ski Center this Friday for the Big Air competition and Saturday for the Slopestyle competition.
“We are a family mountain who exists because of support from our local community,” said Zachary White, general manager of Titus Mountain. “It feels good to give back to some of the members of our community who have called Titus Mountain their home for years.”
At Titus Mountain Family Ski Center, we have always prided ourselves on being a family friendly mountain. That means a little something for everyone, including terrain parks. We have been lucky enough to have terrain park crews that, over the past 4 years, have raised the bar for not only mountains our size, but for the industry in general.
Inspired by the International Olympic Games, the inaugural Empire State Games took place at Syracuse University in 1978. The competitive events mirrored those of the Olympic Summer Games and NY was the first state to organize & hold such a competition.
The Empire State Winter Games came into being not long afterwards and benefited from the marvelous facilities created in the Lake Placid area for the 1980 Winter Olympic Games.
A new brand, new events, new logo, new website. Welcome to the 2016 Empire State Winter Games (ESWG), set for February 4-7 in the Adirondack region.
Event organizers met at Titus Mountain in Malone, N.Y., a new ESWG venue, on Tuesday, December 1 to unveil plans that have been in discussion for several years and marks a significant turning point in what is already the largest community-supported collection of athletic games in the nation.
As a ski resort, there are plenty of things to love about certain times of the year. February is great because there always seems to be fresh powder and time to ski. December is lovely because we are getting right into the swing of all things snow related. At Titus Mountain, we even look forward to months such as July for our music festival and September for our Mud & Mucker.
But you know what month really gets us going? October. October is awesome. And we’re going to tell you why.
What makes someone a veteran Mucker? Because of the obstacles on the course, the accomplishment of the finish, and the comradery between runners, a veteran Mucker is anyone who has completed at least one Mud Run at Titus Mountain! We decided to interview one of those veterans to give newbies (and other veterans) a different perspective than our own. After all, we might be a little biased over our race!
