Titus Mountain Family Ski Center
Titus Mountain Family Ski Center is located in upstate New York in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. The center is just south of Malone along SR-25. The ski resort covers three peaks across 143 skiable acres, making it a medium sized resort for New York. There are 47 total trails with a difficulty mix of 16 easy, 17 intermediate, 10 advanced, and 4 expert runs. There are 3 terrain parks and 1 snow tubing area as well. Titus offers night skiing across 11 trails and 2 terrain parks. With a base elevation of 825 feet, Titus has an unexpected 1350-foot vertical.
10 lifts service the mountains; eight are accessible from the main base and peak, and the other two service the upper mountain. From the Main Base Lodge, Lift IV provides a straight shot up to the primary peak, leading to a series of intermediate glades to the left and a long easy cruiser to the right. Going down the middle means braving a triplet of double black diamond glades or one screamer of a steep. To explore the other two peaks means heading a short jaunt over to Lift VI. This leads to the middle peak where beginner and intermediate runs lead to the Upper Mountain Lodge. Lift VIII will take you to the highest peak, towering over the resort at 2025 feet. From there, you can hit the easy cruiser, Riverview or brave the mogul-filled ungroomed advanced runs of the Outer Edge or David’s Delight.
The Bottom Line
When they bill Titus as a Family Ski Center, they mean it. There is a dedicated learning center for people just getting comfortable on their skis, and plenty of easy runs to help you with your pizza turns. Skiers with more experience under their belt aren’t going to be bored however, with glade skiing and some ungroomed areas to keep it exciting. The après-ski scene isn’t what people come here for (which is good, because there really isn’t one), they’re coming for the family-friendly skiing (which Titus has in spades). Titus gets about 120-inches of snow annually, and they have snow making coverage over 11-miles worth of trails. If you’re looking for a great place to ski in the scenic Adirondacks, you could do a lot worse.
