Jim Quimby
Jim is the Mountain Manager at Saddleback where he is also the former Ski Patrol Director. He has held these positions since the Berry family bought the mountain in 2003. He is responsible for snowmaking, lifts, grooming, trails, ski patrol, and equipment maintenance. Jim was born and raised in Rangeley. He has skied most his whole life at Saddleback; Jim calls Saddleback his baby sitter because his parents would let him ski the mountain alone from a young age. In the Air Force, he was certified in all three disciplines of the Professional Ski Instructors of America (Nordic, snowboard, and alpine). He is also certified as a Senior Ski Patroller. His first love is his family and his Quimby roots that run deep into the Rangeley Region.

Mark Robie: Mark is the Ski and Ride School Director. Mark oversees the operation of the school and all of the ski and snowboarding instructors. Mark has been in the Western Mountains of Maine for 25 seasons, teaching skiing and snowboarding to people of all ages and abilities. Also a Master Maine Guide, he has spent his summers sharing his passion and knowledge of the outdoors. He loves to tell stories and even knows a poem or two. He has a son Leon and lives in Rangeley.  Favorite breakfast: Eggs Benedict, but not every day.
