Saddleback Mountain

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 follows 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.
  • At 4,120 ft elevation, Saddleback is one of only seven ski mountains in New England with a top lift elevation over 4,000 feet. Our 2,000 ft vertical drop 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 
  • Our terrain is naturally segmented by degree of difficulty.  (Click for Trail Map).
  • With more trails per lift capacity, there are less people on each trail, providing a relaxing experience with better snow conditions. 
  • Lowest prices of any large resort makes skiing affordable.  
  • Unique post & beam base lodge with all services, caring staff, huge fieldstone fireplace, great views, low-key environment and no commercialization.
  • Ski and ride school has the lowest student to instructor ratio in North America.  Beginners receive one-on-one instruction and group classes are limited to five. 
  • Best beginner terrain in New England -- four miles of gentle trails and slopes located below the base lodge and away from the rest of the mountain.
  • All lodging on the mountain has ski-in/ski-out access.

Saddleback and the Rangeley Lakes Region are the wild, unspoiled Maine -- where wilderness and recreation meet. Someone described the Rangeley area like going to Alaska ...only closer.
