Ex Titus Mountain Ski Center Manager, Zachary White admitted has that he stole electrical service from National Grid to run the ski lifts and snow-making machinery at Titus Mountain Ski Center.  All in all he admitted to 14 counts.

Two of the counts include felonies:  second-degree grand larceny and failing to obtain a sewage-discharge permit.

The others were four counts of second-degree criminal tampering, four of theft of services and one count each of fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, operating a sewage system without a permit, failure to register a fuel tank and disposal of waste against state regulations.

White remains free on $15,000 cash bail.

White, 45, reportedly powered up ski lifts and snowmaking gear after bypassing National Grid meters from August 2005 until mid-March 2008.

One of the outages lasted 39 days.
