Titus Mountain has six double chairlifts, two triple chairlifts, and two hand-tows serving 42 trails and two terrain parks. The mountain has a history around skiing that started in the late 1940s when a local man built a rope tow on his property and powered it with an old Buick sedan. Neighbors and friends enjoyed the simple ski hill until it officially opened as a ski center in the early sixties as Moon Valley.
The Lodge at Titus Family Ski Center has been enlarged!
The downstairs fireplace remains the same but there is now more picnic-style seating and storage
There are lots of hooks and cubbies available to store gear
Upstairs is another seating area overlooking the mountain with a restaurant in the back.
Don't forget night skiing is available Thursdays - Saturdays. All day tickets purchased on those days are automatically extended to include night skiing! The elevation is 2025-ft with a vertical drop of 1200 ft. with the mountain’s longest run being 3.5 miles.
