FARMINGTON - Titcomb Mountain is preparing to open for the 2019-20 ski season, with a series of events scheduled for this weekend.

On Friday night, Titcomb will host a movie watch party to get people ready for the new season. A live poll is currently active on the Titcomb Facebook page; would-be movie watcher will be able to choose either Romance by Level 1 or Face of Winter by Warren Miller as Friday's movie. All ages will be welcome.

The winning film will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Titcomb Mountain lodge, with prize giveaways and concessions available during the movie. Tickets are $5. Also, the mountain's new Freestyle Program will be unveiled Friday evening.

Opening day events will begin Saturday, Dec. 14, at 8 a.m. with the traditional pancake breakfast running until 10 a.m. The cost is $5 for kids ages 10 and under; $7 for 10 and older; and $20 for a family of four. Lifts will begin running at 9 a.m., until 4 p.m. Season passes will be available for pickup and the store will be open for Titcomb-themed merchandise for the holidays.

Saturday night will feature the SnowDance, with all proceeds benefiting the Titcomb Ski Educational Foundation. The foundation supports children and families that apply for learn-to-ski program scholarships or middle school/high school athletes entering additional races during the season.

The SnowDance is another family-friendly event that will run from 7 to 10 p.m. Live music will be performed by the band Nuclear Salad at the lodge, with a beer garden featuring Tumbledown Brewing and the Titcomb commissary available for use. The cost is $5 for children and college students; $10 for adults; with a $25 maximum for any family. From 7 to 9 p.m., a rail jam will take place on the beach outside of the lodge.

  1. Is it really necessary to serve alcohol at this family friendly SnowDance? Wonder how many would not attend if there was no "Beer Garden". Do parents/adults typically take children with them when they go out to a bar to drink and dance?
