Weather

 

Brisk morning temperatures and cloudy skies will be warming and clearing today as more mild air moves into the region.  Temperatures at the base will be in the mid teens with the lower teens towards the summit.  The next few days will be giving us a taste of spring, temperatures in the 20s and 30s are heading our way this week.  Winter conditions will be returning after this warm up but a little break from the cold will certainly be nice.  These winter days help preserve the snow for the warmer sunnier days ahead and with the most snow in Maine, it should be a long spring skiing season indeed.

Mountain Update

 

The mountain continues to surprise me, yesterday afternoon I had the chance to head out to the Kennebago for a few laps in the afternoon.  No matter how long I have known that Saddleback holds snow quality better than anyone, it still amazes me just how good it can be, even a couple days after the last snow.  While choosing my lines through Casablanca, I was blown away by just how soft the snow was.  So malleable and playful, it became clear you could not make a wrong decision about where to ski right now.  Edge to edge carvers off the Rangeley, soft trees and bumps off the Kennebago, it can be hard to choose; more time on the mountain is the only solution.  Thinking another ski break may be in order today.

 

Tip of the Day

 

Did you miss the premier of “More than a Mountain”? The full film is available on our YouTube page https://youtu.be/vB-h9Nrx2Xg.  If you have a few minutes away from work, or need some, here is your entertainment.

 

It’s racing day!  The lollipop races will be from 1-2:30pm on the Royal Tiger Slope.  Awards (and lollipops) will be on the deck at 2:30 at the conclusion of the races.  This is open to children 12 and under so if you know a young ripper with the need for speed, it’s time to get racing!  All ability levels always welcome!

 

Have an awesome Sunday Funday!

~ Nate
