Saddleback is Enjoying a Record February Vacation Week

We are on the home stretch of the school vacation week with just two more days to go. So far, it has been a fabulous experience, both for management and our guests. It is also shaping up to possibly be a record breaking week for us. That we will not know until all of the accounting is done early next week. Every day this week has produced a similar number of skiers & riders. From all of the comments from our guests, their expectations were more than met.

This morning we experienced a big day in the rental shop. It was observed that many of the renters were wearing some sort of snowmobile garb. One may theorize that with the snowmobile trails in less than ideal shape, some… Read More >>

Excellent Snow Surfaces Prevail!

The Class B High School Ski Racing Championships are now history. Falmouth won the overall combined Alpine & Nordic Boys. The overall Alpine & Nordic combined girls was won by Yarmouth. The awards were presented on the lodge deck this afternoon as pictured here. Congratulations to ski Meisters Sean Daigle of Maranacook & Rebecca Bell of Yarmouth!

The Grey Ghost trail was taken back from the racers and given back to the skiing public this morning. Before opening this morning, the groomers totally rebuilt that trail. They tilled up the entire base, redistributed the snow and then laid out the smooth corduroy packed powder surface. It skied as though it had received fresh… Read More >>

Presidents Week in Full Swing with Lots of Activities!

No day off this week, so I have time to throw in a quick Wednesday blog your way. Well, we missed another snow storm! I am beginning to take it personally. It would have been nice, but the ski conditions remain remarkably good here at Saddleback. We are now halfway through the President's vacation week and the snow is holding up very well. The nightly grooming efforts put the trails back into the same packed powder corduroy each morning. The base is not hard so the packed powder stays with us throughout the day. We do have mountain snow showers in the forecast into Saturday, we hope!

Business has been very strong this week and we are making lots of people happy. We have the… Read More >>

Seth Wescott, High School Championships & News From Casablanca!

First, a big shout out and congratulations to Seth Wescott for his second Olympic gold medal! If you don’t know, Seth grew up in Farmington Maine, just 50 minutes down the road from Saddleback. As a kid, Seth learned to ski here at Saddleback and later started snowboarding here before going to school at Carrabassett Valley Academy and riding Sugarloaf. Seth still enjoys days here at Saddleback when he can.

Today, we hosted the 2010 Maine Principal’s Association Class B GS Championships on the Grey Ghost. It was a gorgeous sunny & mild day, perfect weather to be outside and on the mountain. There were 12 high school teams consisting of about 112 racers. The… Read More >>

The Word Is Out - Saddleback Snow Surfaces Are Superior!

The past three days of operating our ski resort has proved to be a very rewarding experience! It is fun when you know that the skiing product is in great shape and that our guests are having a genuinely good time.  The accolades and thank yous have been amazing!

Obviously, the holiday weekend brings a lot of new skiers & riders to the mountain. It is also a time when other resort season pass holders with pass blackout dates will visit us for the discount that we offer. New skiers and these other resort pass holders can’t help but make comparisons. The commentary has been overwhelming that Saddleback snow surfaces are currently the best in Maine!
