Owner description: 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.

We come back to a slope side condo every year from New Jersey. Some of the family are expert skiers and others bunny slope aficionados. We all love it!! Lots of snow, great staff and perfect mountain!!

My daughter and family ski Saddleback every weekend. It's a wonderful family area. The kids have taken lessons each Sat with great results. It's the kind of mountain that they can be on there own with friend. It is beautifully groomed and family friendly.

This is a great, slightly retro ski resort which is great for family ski trips. The chair lifts, and t-bar are a bit retro, but so fun to have your kids experience what we grew up on. There are never big crowds or long lines...The only issue is it is a colder mountain...much like Jay Peak in my opinion.

As vacation weeks arrive I know many are headed to the mountains of Northern NewEngland. Point your car to Rangeley, Maine where the whir of your busy life slows and you can escape the crowds. Saddleback ski area offer one of the best BIG mountain experiances to be had in the EAST. 4100 foot elevation brings skier and riders plenty... More

We went the perfect time of the year and had the place to ourselves almost. Jan 2013. Slopes were fun, great packages with lessons. Dylan was a great ski instructor. Even though I fell, broke my shoulder and had to get rescued by ski patrol I would go back here!

Snow day at school, took my son to the mtn for the day. Best powder skiing in years. Had lunch at the "Swig n' smelt" Great food just a little overpriced.

Ok so its east coast skiing, but this place is wicked. The scenic view from up top is amazing..looking down on the Rangely Lakes..WOW....ski runs are great with lots of variety and the snow was pretty darn nice..I was there in Feb/March 2014.....will get back there again one day, as well worth the visit.

Due to its steepness, the hike up and down Saddleback Mountain is difficult, even when using the ski trails. However, the views are tremendous throughout the hike and the real treasure is reaching the summit and then hiking the ridge. From the top, the views of the Rangeley Lake Region is incredible. Perhaps the best in the area.

Love, love, love this mountain. My kids love it as well. Great steeps, groomers and awesome glades. Mountain staff is awesome - super friendly. Real Mainers! The only thing I hope happens soon is that they get a new quad to replace the old double chair. That thing is brutal! :-)
