Today was everything that we thought it would be. Beautiful weather, great snow and lots of skiers! As I write this, the base lodge deck is full of sun worshipers soaking up the sun's rays, the mountain's splendor and a margarita or other delicious beverage. The Kennebago Station (AKA the Yurt) is also very popular today. We hauled a bunch of picnic tables up there and set up an outdoor beer garden. I am told that it is jamming! It is also a very entertaining place to be as you have full view of our machine made mogul field and big air jump on Tight Line.

Although the base temperature is 38 degrees, the very dry air along with the cold of the snow is keeping snow surfaces very winter-like and remains packed powder. There is still plenty of soft loose snow in Casablanca and on natural snow trails such as Black Beauty & Frostbite. The forecast calls for a duplicate day tomorrow. So if you missed today, no worries. We get to do this all over again tomorrow.

Tomorrow is Sunday, which also means that it is ski with management day. Meet us at the Rangeley Chair prior to 7:30 am and ski with us for an hour prior to the lift's official opening. Tomorrow is also Maine Day. Maine residents with proof of residency ski for just $35, another great reason to visit Saddleback tomorrow.
