One thing we love about Maine is the change of the seasons and summer in Maine is awesome. There is a reason this state is called “Vacationland”. Our skiing family is truly blessed to be able to work, live and play in the state of Maine all year round.
Our favorite ski area Saddleback Mountain has been BUSY this summer. If you follow them at all on social media you can tell things are cranking right now to provide new fun warm weather activities while also working hard to get ready for the upcoming ski season. Based on social media posts and information provided directly from the friendly staff at Saddleback, here are 5 cool Saddleback Summer Happenings on (or about) the mountain that you should know about.
1. Saddleback Adventures
|Snowmaking Pump Station Work Ongoing|
3. New T-Bar Installation
|New T-Bar Base Terminal Foundation|
4. Maine Outdoor Film FestivalMaine Mountain Media film about Saddleback is a featured selection of the 2021 Maine Outdoor Film Festival. Their film More than a Mountain will be shown the evening of July 30 in Portland, Maine as part of the film festival programming. The Maine Ski Family crew was proud to be interviewed for this feature and the entire film is a great story about Saddleback and the far reaching impact it has. Get your tickets here and let's pack the Portland showing with Saddleback fans!
5. Pub Open for Summer
Facebook page for the Mountain Music Series featuring local music artists performing at the pub. And I dare say show me another mountain in the east with as good of views as what can be had from the Saddleback pub. The reviews of the food have been great and we are looking forward to getting up there later this summer to check out the new menu. Good times are ahead!
And this list does not even cover the solar farm, magic carpet lift, employee housing, A-Frame development (see updated picture from September 2021 below), more parking and the mid-mountain lodge all under development this summer. Saddleback is working hard to become a true 4 season destination. Get out there and enjoy it!
