Comments CommentsPerhaps in part due to the warmer afternoon temperatures, Titcomb had the best conditions of the three Maine ski areas I visited today; generally loose granular and a slight softening into spring snow.

Initially all three lifts were running, however they shut down the #1 T-Bar (skier's right) at 3 PM. Basically four top to bottom runs open thanks to snowmaking: Cougar into Otter Slide, Upper Fox into The Main (the middle portion of the main slope, between Otter Slide and The Main, was barren due to being too far to reach for the guns), Upper Bunny into Lower Bunny, and Beagle into Young's Way.

All open trails skied well. Not a ghost town, but generally no waiting for either T-Bar. #1 T-Bar's lift line probably can't sustain another thaw, but the other side has some snowmaking base that should get them into March (hearing maybe two more weeks?). Nice intermediate terrain (the steeper expert trails beyond the #1 T-Bar are natural snow and thus not open, though there is a little bit of base if we get snow on top). Sort of feels like what Veteran's Memorial in Franklin, NH could be with a little TLC and a small snowmaking system.
