Roger Page Ski & Ride School at Saddleback


Gone Skiing & Snowboarding


Saddleback Mountain, in the western mountains of Maine, will always be a family-oriented resort, with a commitment to treat you like a part of our family. The Roger Page Ski and Ride School, a PSIA/AASI Member School, is headed by a team who is committed to sharing the fun and joy of skiing and riding at Saddleback with our guests. The South Branch area at Saddleback is home to four miles of gentle sloping beginner terrain that does not mix with advanced trails, so you can perfect your turns in a safe learning environment. We also have a new moving carpet this season on lower Smelt Streamer. Don’t miss the Molly Chunkamunk Moving Carpet!




This season, space is limited, and we expect demand to be high, so reservations are strongly recommended for lessons and can be booked in advance through our website or by calling the Ski & Ride School desk at 207.864.5671 ext. 139. The Ski School Desk is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m.
