"Largest steep skiing and riding facility in the East. 12 trails and glades including Casablanca chutes. Top to bottom black and double black diamond runs with no mixing with lower level trails. Served by Kennebago Quad Chair and Kennebago Station restaurant."
That is quite some claim. There certainly are steeper trails at other areas -- the Front Four at Stowe; Ovation, Outer Limits and Devil's Fiddle at Killington; White Heat at Sunday River; Jaws of Death at Mount Snow, among others.
And if you look at trail maps from ski areas in the East, you will see that some have 3-4, or even a half dozen, advanced runs serviced by one lift. Only Saddleback has 12.
You will also notice that advanced terrain at other areas often join with lower level trails or have lower level trails crossing. Many also have flat lead-ins or flat run outs. Most of the 12 Kennebago trails and glades provide top to bottom classic New England steep terrain with no mixing with lower level skiers and riders.
Kennnebago Steeps! is a self-contained advanced skiing complex with its own quad chairlift and food service . The top of the Kennebago Quad is located at 4000 ft in elevation at the start of the snowfields. It is one of only 7 ski lifts in New England that high and is truly a high-elevation alpine experience. From a viewing area at the top of the lift are breathtaking panoramic views of the Rangeley Lakes and the Western Maine Mountains.
Kennebago Station cafe is a yurt with sun deck located at the bottom of Casablanca Glades with great views up and down the mountain. Hot and cold food and beverages, snacks and sundries are available as well as portable restrooms.
Intermediates can use Kennebago Quad to access the America trail which runs along the mountain ridge in the opposite direction from the steep terrain.
