Titcomb Mountain 12/1/2018

Today was one of Titcomb's earliest openings ever, if not the earliest. T-Bar 2 and the Pony Tow opened at 1:00, serving 3 officially open groomed runs on natural snow. A few other trails were not officially open, but were skiable and not roped off. Cover was generally good, with some thin spots showing through. There was a sizable crowd, which created a short line for the T-bar at times. Around 3:00, the clutch cable on the T-bar snapped, which shut the lift down. As of 3:40, when I left, the lift was still down and they didn't know how long it would take to fix. Although a rough start, it was good to get the crowd out there, and to get issues ironed out before the season kicks into full gear.

  • Is Dave fully recovered from getting run over?
  • Bet that's been 5 years at least

    It will open as the season progresses and terrain on that side can be opened.

  • Yeah, I later realized it was only about 25% open
