VENUE

Otis Mountain is an old-time ski hill sitting above Elizabethtown, New York, a small community in the Adirondacks that welcomes friends, strangers and family alike.

Boasting tall pines, meandering rivers, little or no cell-service, handbuilt stages and mossy-wooded campgrounds scattered with relics of the past, Otis is a true hidden gem of the Champlain Valley.

 

 

 

 

GETTING THERE

You have to get here to get down!    

Otis is easily accessible from every corner of New England and beyond. Plan ahead, cell service is limited in our neck of the woods.

Carpooling is important. Check our Ride Share Page and enjoy the ride with good company.

 

ART + FOOD

Otis is a celebration of grassroots efforts and the music is just the beginning—expect amazing local food, craft vendors and work from area artists.

Otis Mountain is as much a meeting place as it is a space to experiment and create. So don’t be surprised when you stumble upon works of art, architecture and creativity in the woods.

HISTORYHISTORY

HISTORY

The story begins in the 1950’s when the mountain operated as a locally-owned ski hill.

It remained open until the late 1970’s, but closed as many other small New England ski hills did, due to expensive insurance costs and low snow winters. The property changed hands in 1994, and has served the community as an open access, privately owned rope tow and recreation area.

Beginning in 2002 the site played host to an annual bluegrass festival that showcased some of the genre’s finest acts. The festival ran until 2009. After 4 years of dormition it was revived with a new direction by the next generation of friends and family at Otis, and continues to keep the mountain’s legacy of community, good music, and good times alive.
