A New Midweek One Night Two Day Ski & Stay Package Unveiled

The weather people blew the forecast today, calling for overcast with the chance of flurries. Instead, it was sunny with base temps near 38 degrees. The summit temperatures remain much cooler in the 20’s and that continues to keep the snow cold and dry. We will see a clear cold night and another sunny day for Tuesday. In fact, all of this week should be nice and this would be a great week to play hooky and ski Saddleback!

We have had a great success with our new 2 for 1 Wednesdays and have decided to sweeten the deal with a one night lodging offer with two days of skiing.  Now you will be able to stay in a ski-in & ski-out condo either Tuesday night… Read More >>

Great Weekend of Skiing & Record Attendance at Saddleback!

As a ski area operator, this was one weekend that we will cherish! If you could put in a frame and hang it on the wall, we would. I guess when you have 64 inches of new snow within 6 days and you follow that with picture-perfect weather, you are going to have a big weekend. Big it was! To date, it was the biggest weekend in Saddleback history. Previously, the biggest weekend was this year’s Martin Luther King weekend. President’s week was also the biggest holiday week ever. WE are delighted to have visited the record books three times this winter. Even skiing with management this morning was huge with over a hundred people showing up! We decide on the first run to split… Read More >>

Spring Weather and Winter Snow Surfaces Prevail at Saddleback

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… Read More >>

A Dream Day for a Ski Resort Marketing Director!

Today was one of those magical days at work for a ski resort Marketing Director. We had numerous marketing events and production activities going on simultaneously all show cased under ideal weather and snow conditions.  All of the stars aligned and magic happened here today.

First, we had some visiting trip planners from a ski club from New Brunswick, Cananda here scouting Saddleback for a 5-day ski week next year. My wife Lisa was kind to offer to tour them around the mountain and make sure that they learned how to make the most of Saddleback. They were impressed and we will likely book their trip.

Second, there was a photo shoot by our marketing… Read More >>

March Madness Begins this Weekend at Saddleback

This week we turned the page to March - the nicest month of the ski season in my opinion. The light is best, temperatures are pleasant, our BBQ’s are soon to get underway, then comes spring events like pond skimming & the cardboard box race. In general, people are more relaxed and yet they become more spirited. Some folks will even take off their shirts and ski in shorts. We will get a taste of spring this weekend! The photo here is a group of Eastern Ski Writers checking out the snow on Black Beauty this morning.

The forecast is calling for sunshine beginning tomorrow and lasting through the weekend. The mountain is in great shape from last week's huge snowfall and we… Read More >>
