PEAK Day At Saddleback!

Today was PEAK Day at Saddleback and was it ever fun! PEAK stands for Promoting Education & Activities for Kids. Simply put, any Maine student up through 12th grade who makes the honor roll may purchase a Saddleback seasons pass for $49. We announced the program in September with Governor Baldacci and Survivor winner Bob Crowley. Since that time we have had close to 2,000 passes sold to honor roll students. Today was a day to celebrate their success!

Over 200 honor kids showed up to sign up for a raffle to win skis or a snowboard. They had a great day for skiing and riding. At 2:00 PM Survivor Bob Crowley was introduced to the kids on the sun deck and he spoke and… Read More >>

The Skiing Weatherman At Saddleback Aired Last Night In 33 US Markets

If you recall Monday’s blog, we spoke of our visit from the skiing weatherman, Herb Stevens. He was producing this week’s ski report at Saddleback. The ski report aired throughout the United States in 33 markets last night. I must say that it came out very well. Here is a link to view it. Remember this was shot Monday after we had received a bit of snow overnight. http://snocountry.com/index.php/videos.html?task=videodirectlink&id=56

So, as you could see from the clip, we have very good coverage and we are ready for the weekend. The headwalls of Tight Line and Supervisor will… Read More >>

A Promising Weekend Ahead

It looks to be a promising weekend ahead with lots of things to see and do at Saddleback and in Rangeley. First, the weather outlook is fantastic with good temperatures, sunshine and calm winds. The snow surfaces are groomed and ready and even the steep headwalls of Supervisor and Tight Line will be in the best possible shape. Even our local weather people are announcing that "this is a weekend to get outside and play". 

This will be a very active weekend for the Rangeley area. Saturday is PEAK Day, a day for honor roll students with Saddleback PEAK Passes to get together for a group photo and camaraderie. Bob Crowley, of survivor fame, will be here as well. Bob was our… Read More >>

Snowmaking Moves To Tight Line

Late yesterday the snowmaking crew fired up the guns on Supervisor, Artula & Firefly. The cold temperatures and the diminished winds allowed the snowmaking crew to put down huge amounts of snow in a relatively short period of time. The snowmaking plan was to stay on Supervisor for a couple of days before moving to Tight Line. Upon inspection of the snowmaking progress, the plan quickly changed. Because of the amount of snow produced, we decided to save a day of snowmaking and to start pulling guns from Supervisor and relocate them to Tight Line. We are still in the process of moving, but very soon we will have all of Tight Line lit up top to bottom as pictured here from an earlier… Read More >>

The Skiing Weatherman, Herb Stevens visits Saddleback Today

Today we had a scheduled visit by The Skiing Weatherman, Herb Stevens. For those of you not familiar with Herb, he visits a different ski resort each Monday to produce his skiing weather forecast for the upcoming weekend. Herb's show is aired on major network TV channels in 11 different metropolitan markets including Portland ME, Manchester NH, Boston MA, Providence RI, & New York City. This was our week. Steve Prince organized a group of ski & snowboard models for the shoot. The group was made up of Saddleback employees Ian, Crissy, Bouf and Holland. We were fortunate to pick up an inch of snow overnight and the skies have turned into a bluebird day! The group ventured over… Read More >>
