We have been blogging the last few days about the transformation of the ski conditions on the trails and glades but have not discussed the park.Yesterday afternoon the park was reshape and groomed and it is in fantastic condition. We now have 14 elements including a new Saddleback half wall which is shown in the photo. The wall will open tomorrow after it sets in place for another night. As you can see, riders are enjoying the uprail next to the wall. Other elements include 3 huge jumps, up rail, a flat down rail, a double barrel rail and two flat boxes.

If you didn't ski today, you are missing a beauty. The winds from last night have diminished, we have wall to wall sunshine and the temperatures continue to nudge up and it is now zero at the base. I expect temperatures to rise to near 10 degrees by this afternoon. Our skiers are raving about the snow surfaces and are having a great time. Tomorrow is expected to be a similar day but warmer with temperatures in the high teens. Tomorrow is ski with the management day. Meet us at the Rangeley Double at 7:30 AM and ski with some of the Saddleback management before the lifts officially open at 8:30.
