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 just finished our week of skiing at Saddleback. We got our kids the Peak Pass. $149 for the season pass. The trails were awesome! The snow was great too! The issue I had this week was with the lifts. The mountain has a quad that goes to the top of the mountain. In fact, it is the only way... More

Saddleback has some truly awesome trails and glades, well maintained, cozy mountain feel. The only negative is the SLOW lifts. Mountain food/bar was pretty good too.

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.
