FARMINGTON – The Titcomb Mountain Holiday Auction will be held on Friday, Dec. 1, at the Granary Restaurant. The auction, sponsored by the Farmington Ski Club and the Titcomb Ski Education Foundation, is in its 11th year.

A variety of items has been donated by club members and local businesses and craftsmen. Articles include handcrafted items, junior skis from Ski Depot, golf and ski passes, Longaberger Christmas basket, pottery and other pieces of art, gift certificates and specialty baked goods.

A handcrafted maple and cherry rocking chair from W.A. Mitchell is a raffle item. The chair will be the first Titcomb Mountain commemorative chair from W.A. Mitchell. A limited number of $10 raffle tickets will be available at the auction.

Proceeds raised from prior auctions have supported many capital projects, including snowmaking equipment, snowgrooming equipment, a tractor and lift upgrades.

Funds from this year’s auction will be used to reduce the debt from the large capital improvements. Continued improvements are essential for Titcomb Mountain to better serve the children and families of the community and surrounding area. Each season more than 400 children participate in organized winter recreation programs at Titcomb Mountain.
