At Saddleback, we've taken a different road from other large resorts. 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.

Although more difficult to get to than other areas in Maine, Saddleback is well worth the trip. There is an extensive beginner area with a very gentle grade that is served by its own quad. There are many good blue groomers served by the (slow) Rangeley double and great steeps and glades served by the Kennebago quad. The ski school... More

There are so many great things I could say about this mountain. Saddleback has a classic old school ski vibe with the attractions of some newer resorts. Their slogan is "Bigger than you think, different from the rest" and that is very accurate. It's a huge mountain at 4,280 ft tall with over sixty unique trails. The lifties are always... More

Saddleback has been my family's ski destination for 25 years. My sons learned to ski there and it is practically the only mountain they ever ski. This winter brought a bounty of natural snow to the mountain and once in warmed up enough to enjoy the slopes, the ski conditions were fantastic. When conditions are great and its not crowded...

Saddleback is a great ski mountain with terrain for all levels! The lodge is beautiful and the restaurant is great! Everyone who works here is so friendly and the lesson instructors are extremely knowledgeable and great at teaching! The glades are the best in Maine!

The weather was perfect, the snow better than you can imagine, no lineups and great ski resort personnel. What a fantastic hideaway ski place! The wind really picked up near closing but there were still several people going against the wind and blowing snow for the last run of the day. They have a warmup cabin at the top -... More

Great layout of trails, excellent grooming, and tremendous variety. This is one of our favorite slopes to enjoy downhill skiing. Because of its location, winter days can be extreme (high winds or occasional blizzards). All lifts are of the older variety, so don't expect to get to the top quickly. It's still worth the trip, and by all means, go... More

Pros: Well cut trails, steeps and Glades. Variety of terrain. Scenic. Clean Classic Lodge. Independent, local, and unique in feel. Remote, non commercial access road. Friendly Maine staff, and courteous safe skiers.Would like to borrow/copy "ski rule" safety signs from steel lattice fixed double chair lift poles and repost them in Bethel. Too far to day trip from South of... More

First time trying out Saddleback. We liked it very much! Beautiful condos, friendly staff, nice trails! Smaller and less busy compared to the other "big ones". The double chair is really the only minor setback, as well as the hike uphill to get to a few of the black trails and glades. We had two days of great skiing here.... More
