This about sums up our ski day experience on April 8th, 2024 at Saddleback Maine. As stated on WGBH.ORG.

Grant worked as an intern in at Quantrix, a company I worked for a while ago. He is on to big things at the Harvard and Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and vice president of the American Astronomical Society. He captured the experience in words exactly right.

And add viewing a total eclipse from the top of Saddleback mountain, with a 360 degree ring of orange on the horizon with the sun and moon merging as one giant cosmic object in the sky set in a beautiful shade of blue and gray sprinkled with the lights of Venus and Jupiter ... was utterly mind-blowing. We expected it to be a cool and awesome experience, but it far exceeded our expectations.

Saddleback had an A+ weekend. Deep Snow to Bright Spring Sunshine to Magical Eclipse Darkness. The management and staff pulled all the right levers to make it a top notch experience for all the guests. Well done.

Read this article on the BBC, where our family happened to be captured in one of the photos:

Check out this great article in the Rangeley Highlander highlighting the many eclipse events and experiences in the Rangeley area.

And this composite photo from Andy Gagne Photography of a skier skiing off the backside of Saddleback is stunning.

Image description from the photographer: This image is a composite photo composed from two images which allowed me to use some creative freedom in post production. One image is of the eclipse/sky and one of the skier/mountain. This allowing me to recompose the eclipse to appear larger and lower in the sky. I took both images from the same location during totality just moments apart from each other.

Eclipse euphoria is real! We live in an amazing world! We must take care of it! We are blessed.
