AUGUST 31 UPDATE ON SADDLEBACK SKI AREA
A Family Skiing in Maine had a phone conversation with Peter Stein today. Peter is the lead organizer behind the community based effort to reopen Saddleback. Peter indicated there is a narrow but viable path to open the ski area this year. As with any transaction of this type, there are a lot of moving parts and challenges... but Peter is cautiously optimistic he will be skiing down Royal Tiger with his 2 year old grandson this season.
Peter is working towards a near term goal for the organization to start collecting funds to purchase the ski area. When this happens, we all need to carefully consider and react quickly to this fundraising effort to make skiing Saddleback again this winter a reality. I will certainly post more information when I receive it.
This is an actual photo of a snowmaking rainbow on Blue Devil. Collectively, we can fund that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and bring back lift serviced skiing to Saddleback!
