Saddleback 2023-24 Season Preview - 5 Things to Know

The countdown is on for the opening day of the ski season at Saddleback Maine! Saddleback is targeting to spin the lifts December 2nd but that is all dependent on getting enough cold weather for Saddleback's awesome snowmaking team to cover the trails in white gold.  Keep doing your cold and snow dances and we will be shredding the slopes soon! Keep an eye on their Facebook, Instagram and the Website Mountain Report feeds for opening day announcements.

Saddleback has been busy once again this off-season. While not all of these projects directly impact the on-snow experience, they are all key in driving the mission of Saddleback forward to be a sustainable business positively benefiting their customers, mountain staff and the Rangeley area as a whole.

Here are 5 things to know for the upcoming 2023-24 winter season at Saddleback Maine.

Grooming Improvements

Saddleback took delivery of two Pisten Bully 600 E+ eco groomers to lay down that awesome cord and be more eco-friendly at the same time. Great addition to the fleet that provides some of the best snow surfaces around.

Snowmaking Improvements

Saddleback took delivery of an array of snowmaking equipment including Super Puma snow guns, pole cats and Low-E stick guns. We have already noticed this equipment in-position on the trails and ready to go!

Uphill New England Collective Pass

Saddleback has joined the Uphill New England Collective Pass, offering access to Saddleback's dedicated uphill trail as well as 11 other uphill systems across New England.

Employee Housing

Saddleback cut the ribbon on opening the Saddleback House, an employee housing facility offering 43 rooms, laundry facilities, dining area and direct ski in / ski out access to the slopes. The building will provide housing to up to 60-70 Saddleback employees and also potentially house employees of other Rangeley area businesses. This is a fantastic project supporting the entire Rangeley region.

Another milestone for the mountain! “This project has been a huge undertaking for Saddleback, our property maintenance...

Solar Farm

Partnering with Nexamp, the Saddleback solar farm is now online providing to the electric grid twice the power needed to run the resort. Tucked away in the northeast corner of the Saddleback property, this is another step forward in Saddleback's sustainability commitment.

And we expect to hear winter operation news about the new Mid-Mountain Restaurant soon! What we know is that it is targeted for a December 15, 2023 opening. Located at 3,620 feet at the top of the Rangeley chair, the building will feature ski-up food and beverage kiosk, bathrooms, merchandise area and space for indoor and outdoor immersive dining. 

There are lots of other services, amenities and on-snow experiences that the Saddleback team works hard at delivering each winter season. To that end, check out our First-Timer's Guide to Saddleback Ski Area to get the most out of your visit to Saddleback. See you on the slopes!
