From our natural terrain and our wilderness environment to how the mountain was developed and is operated, almost everything about Saddleback is different.It's a magnificent mountain with genuine values and a gentle soul. It's the way Alpine skiing and riding used to be. Classic New England ski terrain with trails that follow the contours. Snow-covered conifers over most of the mountain create a different feel with rime-frosted trees at the lower elevations and snow ghosts at the upper. High elevation alpine experience with snowfields. At 4120 ft elevation, Saddleback is only one of seven ski mountains in New England with atop lift elevation over 4000 feet. Our vertical is greater than several well-known big mountain resorts. Kennebago Steeps! is the largest steep skiing and riding facility in the East. Saddleback has extensive glades like other ski areas but only Saddleback has Casablanca Glades & Chutes which provide endless ways down through Paradise. « less

The terrain is super good, and the place has really cheap lift tickets ($45), but the drops aren't too heart-pumping for a snowboarder. I ski, too, and I like the skiing there, because I'm not looking for the excitement of a serious slide. But, the grooming is super careful and the crowd that goes there is very friendly and helpful.

Saddleback mountain, is the most friendly and experienced ski area in he world. It is full of life, with wonderful views but most of all, the friendly people. I have been going there for years and grooming is always perfect, snow is always good late-season and the food is good. The queues are always very small and the Casablanca glades,... More

Saddleback Maine is big mountain skiing for small mountain prices with some of the best glades and mogul in the East. It is wicked family friendly, with plenty of blue and green terrain, too. It sports a civil community of skiers where people actually talk to each other (to strangers) on the lifts, in the line and in the lodge.... More

Big mountain skiing, Unpretentious atmosphere. Great snow, even late in the season. Down-home, friendly service by every staff member, from ticket sellers, lift operators to food service and bartenders. This place has become my absolute favorite ski area in the East! I only wished it was closer to home, then I'd be there every day!

I love this mountain so maybe I hope no one else will come ski here so I can have it alllllllllll to myself! If you like to ski in the quiet beautiful mountains, see the occasional passing moose on the trail, and ride one of the last historic T-bars in the WORLD, come here and don't ever tell anyone else...

We just spent a few days up at Saddleback Mountain, our first visit ever. We are hooked! Stayed in a wonderful trailside condo, tastefully furnished, beautiful view. We could not believe how uncrowded it was and the slopes were in perfect condition. So few people skiing that the corduroy never got worn off!! All of the staff and workers were... More

If you're tired of crowded, corporate ski operations, but you want to ski a big mountain (big for the East, anyway), Saddleback is the best. I was there for two mid-week powder days and had the mountain pretty much to myself! There's no loud music, no cheesy lodge scene, no posturing -- just great skiing, friendly people, and a surprising... More

From greating you at the drop off with smiles and friendly assistance to great staff on the lifts they provide and all around great skiing experience. I didn't give them 5 stars only... More

Well groomed & friendly lift attendants!! Beautiful view! Skiing & riding for all experience levels. A great place for a day trip but mountain & trails are interesting enough for multiple days
