10 Mar Mountain Madness Returns to Titus in Celebration of the 2014-2015 Ski Season
MALONE — Titus Mountain Family Ski Center is proud to announce the return of Mountain Madness this Saturday, March 14. Mountain Madness, an end-of-season celebration that has been going on for over 10 years, includes live music, pond skimming, ski competitions, a torchlight parade and fireworks.
The 2014-2015 ski season has been one filled with record-breaking snow throughout the country and Titus Mountain plans on using the snow to its full advantage. “Mountain Madness usually signifies the tail end of the ski season but this year we’re looking to ski right into April,” Christopher Monette, an owner of the mountain, said regarding the snowfall. “It seemed every week we had snow this season. Our base is phenomenal.”
Despite the extended ski season, Mountain Madness will continue on with the celebration. Pond skimming, a torchlight parade, and a fireworks display have been a staple at the event for years and will continue at this year’s event. “It really is quite a show,” said Dene Savage, IT director and conditions reporter for Titus Mountain. “Any skier or snowboarder can participate in the pond skimming and those 18+ can participate in the torchlight parade. But watching the events is a treat in itself.”
Titus Mountain will also have sugar shack tours of their slopeside Maple Syrup business, live music by “Glass Onion” and “Northbound,” racing and terrain park competitions, kids’ activities and face painting, a cardboard sled race, and much more. “Each year we try and add more activities for everyone to enjoy, skiers or nonskiers, kids or adults, families or friends. We want everyone to be able to have fun on the mountain,” Monette added in regards to the lineup of events.
Activities are scheduled throughout the day with the fireworks show slated for 8:30 p.m. and live music will play into the night. There is free admission for spectators and most competitions are free to enter with a valid lift ticket or season pass. More information can be found on Titus Mountain’s website or Facebook page.
