I head up to Saddleback in early March every year with a group of people. This group has been together for 30 years and we've skied all over New England. After years of staying at Sugarloaf, we switched to Saddleback 5 years ago. The change has been extremely positive in many ways. The lodging is terrific and in great shape. The lifts are slow, however, because they are slow, the trails are NEVER crowded and the snow on the last run of the day is just as good as it is on the first run of the day. The people are very friendly and welcoming. The only downside is that it takes a while to drive up there, but from the time you arrive to the time you leave, the drive is well worth it. Lift ticket prices are very reasonable. The terrain is as challenging as you want it to be, but if you just want to cruise, you can do that. The ski school instructors all seem to be enjoying what they do and the kids that are taking lessons appear to really be enjoying themselves. The lodge is fantastic and is about the best in all of New England.
