But you know what month really gets us going? October. October is awesome. And we’re going to tell you why.
- Oktoberfest: You should have seen this one coming. Oktoberfest at Titus Mountain is only the best kick-off to Autumn and ski season that we at Titus Mountain could ever wish for. It’s a great time for everyone, not just skiers and snowboarders. We get to show off our mountain to anyone who wants to see it! We have chairlift rides and hayrides for those who want to get a good look at the landscape without a beautiful layer of snow on it. Our Ski Patrol has a delicious outdoor grill going on all day long serving Oktoberfest favorites such as hot dogs and sausages as well as other North Country favorites. Our bar is open serving wonderful Oktoberfest brews as well as your favorite go-to beverages. The Titus Teddy Kids’ Zone is filled with bounce house and games and live music rocks the mountain all day. We can go on and on and on, but we’ll have to stop ourselves… but not before mentioning FIREWORKS! Don’t forget the fireworks that ignite the sky for a culmination of one of the best days our mountain has off-season. See you this Saturday!
- Ski Shows: Working on a ski mountain, it’s kind of inherent that we love skiing and snowboarding and all things snow sports. However, there is something we love more than skiing and snowboarding, and that’s sharing our love for skiing and snowboarding with other snow enthusiasts! October is jam-packed with ski shows across the nation and we’re happy to be a participant in the Toronto Snow Show and the Ottawa Ski and Snowboard Expo. We love heading off to these shows and speaking with others who can’t wait for the snow to start flying. Some people we talk to consider Titus their home away from home and some people haven’t even heard of us. Some people have been skiing for 70+ years and some only slid down the snow for the first time last year. It doesn’t matter, we love it all! So if you’re headed to a ski show anytime soon, make sure you look us up and say hello!
- Season Pass Sale: Trail for trail, glade for glade, and mogul for mogul, Titus Mountain Season Passholders enjoy the best deal in the North Country. And October make that deal super wonderful because it gives you 30 more days to purchase a season pass at a discounted rate! Up until October 31st, our season passes are on sale at super discounted, limited inventory prices. And if you’re on the fence about your season pass, this year we added not one but TWO passholder appreciation days where you can enjoy discounted food and drinks and bring a friend for free! More information to come on the passholder appreciation days… but we also have a NEW Moon Valley Grill Loyalty Card this year. And October is a great month to lock in the savings.
- Sweater Weather: Boy, do we love sweater weather. October is the “official” month to break out the sweaters and sweatshirts and cuddle up in them as the days are still a bit warm and the evenings cool off. Sweaters remind us of ski season and we go through all of last year’s clothes and make sure they still fit for this year. And we’re not the only ones who love it. Heck, there was even a song written about sweater weather.
- Autumn Leaves: A lot of why we love October has to do with getting ready for a fun-filled ski season. But we’re not all just snow-junkie robots. While we do love the feeling of fresh powder under our feet and the cool, brisk air against our faces, we also can take the time to appreciate our mountain without the snow. And we have to say that our offices have some of the greatest views around. We can look out our window during October and see beautiful mist rising from the mountainside that clears and gives way to brilliant autumn colors in every direction. Every day we get to experience beautiful views of Titus Mountain, just the way Mother Nature intended. And while fluffy white is always on our mind, each day we take the time to appreciate the colors around us whether it’s the deep green sea of trees housing all types of woodland creatures, or brilliant displays of foliage that make New York State an Autumn destination. We sure are lucky.
