Sunshine, blue sky, no wind and great snow! Just another day in paradise at Saddleback Maine. The grooming was very extensive overnight as most major trails were groomed. The winch also groomed the headwalls of both Supervisor and Tight Line. Today's photo depicts the day well. That shot is of Bouf riding the snowfields on top of Saddleback.

Executive Director of Ski Maine, Greg Sweetser paid a visit to Saddleback today. He took advantage of this fine weather to get some scenic photos for future use by Ski Maine and possibly Maine Tourism. We had a good discussion about the state of Maine's ski business. All indications are that business is solid and that Maine skiers are getting out statewide. The bigger Maine resorts seem to be pulling in out-of-state skiers well, particularly during last week's MLK weekend.

Tomorrow should be another great day. The groomers will do their thing again tonight. There is still plenty of loose powdery snow in the glades. The day will start out with some sunshine but we will see increasing clouds by afternoon. Tomorrow is ski with the management day. Meet us at the Rangeley Double at 7:30 AM and ski with us until the lifts open at 8:30 AM. I hope that you can join us.
