RANGELEY, Maine - On Dec. 31, Maine State Representative Tom Saviello presented the Berry family with a proclamation signed by Governor John E. Baldacci declaring Dec. 31, 2010, Saddleback Day in the State of Maine in recognition of Saddleback's 50th anniversary.
"Our family is proud to be a part of Saddleback's 50 year history," said Bill Berry, owner of Saddleback Maine. "The resort started operations on December 31, 1960 with just two T-bars and has now grown into a year-round destination providing genuine Maine hospitality, and affordable skiing and riding for everyone. We are touched that Governor Baldacci has honored the resort with this proclamation."
On New Year's Eve, Saddleback celebrated the 50th anniversary with a marshmallow roast and fireworks display.
Saddleback Maine, one of New England's finest family ski resorts, is located in the legendary Rangeley Lakes Region of the Western Mountains of Maine. With a 2000' vertical drop, over 4000' top elevation and 66 trails and glades, Saddleback offers New England's best big mountain value and unspoiled, rustic beauty amidst the largest concentration of 4000 foot peaks in Maine. Saddleback is committed to carefully crafting its growth with an environmental focus and support of community.
