Another Amazing Recovery at Saddleback!

If you have been reading my blog this week, you can imagine how bleak the outlook was for coming out of a three day rain event with good snow cover and good skiing. When doing the ski reports yesterday and again early this morning we were under the assumption that the glades would be lost as well as some of the lower natural snow trails. Hence our trail count was greatly reduced. Once the clouds lifted and we started making our way around the mountain this morning, we came to the realization that every trail and every glade would soon be open and most with exceptional coverage!

The groomers were able to get out and groom a dozen of our most major arteries, creating a corduroy wet… Read More >>

Saddleback To Re-Open Thursday at 9:00 AM

This is certainly depressing weather and it is cutting into our spring skiing. Currently it is about 39 degrees at the base with fog and drizzle obscuring the mountain. Things will begin to improve tomorrow, but not until later in the day. So, at today’s Directors meeting, we have decided to remain closed Wednesday and re-open for sure on Thursday. Thursday will be sunny and warm, a great day for some spring skiing.

Tomorrow afternoon Jared, Sean & Jimmy will get around the mountain to access conditions and put an accurate trail and glade count together for me so that I can let you know what to expect. If surfaces are too soft we will not be able to groom steep… Read More >>

We Are Looking Forward to the Return of Sunshine & Easter Weekend!

I am certainly glad that today is a Monday and not a weekend day! We have been very lucky to get this bad weather out of the way during the early mid-week days. Early this morning, we receive about 4 inches of wet snow before changing over to rain. We have steady rain currently and we have another low pressure which will bring another slug of rain in here tomorrow. It was a very easy decision not to be open today and tomorrow, as it would be miserable on a chairlift. I am sure no one would have shown up to ski anyway. We will take a wait and see approach to Wednesday’s operation.

The forecast calls for sun to return Thursday and it looks to be a very warm sunny weekend. We… Read More >>

PEAK Honor Pass Program to Continue Next Winter – Survivor Winner Bob Crowley to Continue as Celebrity Spokesperson

Yesterday we invited PEAK pass holders to another PEAK day at Saddleback. If you don’t know, PEAK stands for Promoting Education and Activities for Kids. Simply put, any Maine student up through grade 12 that makes the honor roll is eligible to have a Saddleback season's pass for only $49! Yesterday we put a raffle together to win 3 PEAK passes for next season and had a group photo with our celebrity spokesperson, survivor Bob Crowley. Pictured here are the lucky raffle winners with survivor Bob.

This PEAK program was extremely successful. It gave students great motivation to push themselves with their grades and made parents & teachers very happy. We have heard countless… Read More >>

Another fun filled Saturday at Saddleback

Another fun Saturday was had by all today as we were treated to another sunny day. Temperatures remained in the 20’s so we were skiing on winter-like conditions. These colder temps also made for a very fast Cardboard Box Race. This was the sixth annual Cardboard Box Race. Although called a race, we judges actually voted on creativity of the vehicle. This year's theme was cartoon characters. We had four age categories and one team category. The winners were Underdog (pictured here), Curious George, Scooby Doo, Elmer Fudd & Bugs Bunny & Cars. The course was so fast that we decided to move the start a bit down the course. There were some funny crashes at the… Read More >>
