It’s the day before Halloween and you are at a big box store staring helplessly at the ravaged shelves of what’s left for Halloween costumes. The only thing left to choose from is the ripped open bag for a pirate—but you did that last year—and the “Sexy Pizza Rat”—but it’s two sizes too small.
Never fear! There is nothing a little DIY, hot glue, and rummaging through your ski and snowboard closet can’t do to help you win the costume contest that you’ve just been *this close* to winning for the past 6 years. Put all that gear to use. Plus, it's a great way to make sure it all still fits before the snow starts flying!
Personally, for better or for worse, I’ve spent over half of a century of winters wearing ski boots. The boots (just like the sport) have changed remarkably through those years, but two things have always remained the same:
One of the most exciting times of year here at Titus Mountain is when we roll-out the snow guns and start building big piles of the stuff. I have a great view of this action from my office window and I can tell you that watching it never get’s old. As the piles grow higher, I can just feel the anticipation of the coming season get stronger & stronger. It’s great!
Ah, the smell of Autumn. It means lots of things in the ski industry… from the return of Old Man Winter to the literal “crunch” we can hear in our calendars as we prepare to get the lifts turning. But one of the best parts about Autumn before the snow starts to fly? Ski Show season! For Titus Mountain, it means heading out to Toronto, Ottawa, and Albany to meet up with some of our favorite fans to meeting new ones. With Toronto just around the corner, we thought it might be fun to give some of our fans who we plan on seeing at the ski shows some insider tips!
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.
