Amazing February Conditions Again at Saddleback

The view at Saddleback never gets old!
We finished off one of the better February's in memory with a great ski day at Saddleback Maine.
Temps were in the lower teens, very light winds with bright sunshine and zero clouds. A spectacular winter Maine ski day.

Overall the conditions were excellent. The groomers are skiing absolutely beautifully. Ghost, Coachman, the Devils, Silver Doctor all were awesome and the upper mountain Tight Line and Supervisor were super as well. Perfect corduroy in the morning with a deep base so conditions held up all day. We thought the gladed trails, notably Intimidator and Thrombosis were spot-on. Even though they had been skied plenty they held soft snow that held an edge well when you needed it. The upper section of Peachy's Peril held perfect Old Man bumps. Us powder hounds are looking forward to some more snow in the Western Maine mountains, but overall we certainly can't complain about our ski day!

A telemark group from Bowdoin College outing club was there wearing all kinds of crazy outfits. Loads of fun. Nice crowd on the mountain but lift lines were manageable to ski right on. Doesn't get any better than that.

Today (March 1st)  is $39 Maine day at Saddleback. Temps should get into the 20's - it should be an awesome day! Here is our video edit from our day.
