Titcomb Mountain 3/21/2018

edited March 22 in Trip Reports Posts: 2,349
Yesterday I visited UMaine Farmington and spent an hour and a half skiing Titcomb in the afternoon. I showed up just as it opened at 3:00 and it was obvious that there was a ton of snow there. There were no bare patches and nothing looked thin at all. All trails were open, but only the #2 T-Bar was running. This T-bar is a Constam, originally built in 1953 at Cannon and was a smooth ride. This meant that to access the trails on skier's right, you had to walk uphill a bit at the top and at the base to get back. It was relatively busy and there was sometimes a line to get on the lift. The snow was excellent packed powder with everything ungroomed being wet powder. The mountain has an excellent variety of terrain, more than what would be expected from a mountain of that size. There was a good terrain park, nice beginner terrain, fun glades, soft moguls on The Main, and some very steep and narrow stuff towards skier's right. The T-bar was fast and I was able to get in a good number of runs at this fun smaller area. It's very cheap and I recommend stopping in to anyone in the area.

    I skied there with my son on January 16th, 2016 with 4" of fresh powder. Sadly that was the best day of the season that awful year, even better than Sugarloaf the next day.

    I didn't see it, but they had a lot of features including a small cross course.

    Your the best Sam, if only Conrad would be so aggressive
    I know he has been there a few years back when he was in college but just does not post as aggressively, sorry Conrad I love you man

    Wow a Constam! How much older is the one Jeremy D rode in Quebec?

    Nice, UMF is my alma mater and I had a few good days there back during my old school days! Great little hill and love the old diesel powered lifts. This one certainly has some Hall parts incorporated too, but a classic old lift!

    I still haven't skied outside of New England. Our trip to Plattekill in February was cancelled because of rain.
