Ski and Ride #ThenBeer
It's a fact: beer just tastes better at the mountain. Nothing really beats a day of skiing and riding finished off with a cold beer. If you've visited Saddleback this season you probably noticed the not-so-traditional bar we have outside of the base lodge. We present to you, The Fat Tire Mountain Bar. From a recycled shipping container, we're serving up New Belgium Brewing beer, wine, coffee and hot chocolate, soups, sandwiches and snacks.
An Update from Andy
After years of working on reopening, December 15th was a big day for the Saddleback Family. It was exciting to welcome so many smiling faces back and see so many families reconnecting through the holiday, outside. We put a lot of thought into being able to provide a safe environment at the mountain and in the lodge and I want to personally thank the Saddleback family for your understanding and commitment to buying into those plans and wearing your masks while you are here.Read More
