A Family-Friendly Winter Destination for Skiing
At Saddleback Mountain ski season is open from December through March. Those looking to make the most of winter fun will find themselves in the heart of a family-friendly snow sports resort where things are done with the concept of community always top of mind. Whether you’re arriving with teenagers in tow or little ones you’ll find that Saddleback Mountain is set up ideally for visitors of all ages to enjoy time outside. Those who arrive with small children will love that skiing here is accompanied by the use of a magic carpet. This makes getting back up to the top of the hill a breeze, and even a fun adventure in and of itself! If it’s your child’s first time on skis, not to worry. A trip to Saddleback Mountain offers the option of booking private, semi-private, or group lessons that range from hour-long experiences in the basics to 3-hour instruction periods so they’re ready to go when it’s time to glide down the slopes. The Horizons Ski Program at Saddleback is a great option for skiers with autism who are excited to make the most of snow sports but could use modified instruction to gain confidence on the snow. For those who don’t have their own winter sports gear upon arrival, Saddleback Ski School has you covered. Both ski and snowboard rentals are readily available upon request to make even more of the outdoor fun. The on-site retail shop is a great place to purchase winter wear for adventures outdoors as well.

Saddleback Mountain is often referred to as the friendliest mountain in the Northeast with good reason. Here, visitors are encouraged to expand their winter sports horizons at every turn. Whether you’re snowboarding at the snowboarding park or hiking up the mountain on an uphill trail to try something new, you’ll always be in good company. This leaves many visitors feeling that no matter what they’re trying out, they’re a valued part of this tight Rangeley community. From the updated lifts and amazing views to the option to fill a day with downhill and uphill fun alike, there’s no shortage of excitement when it comes to snow sports experienced on Saddleback Mountain.
Warm-Up in Saddleback Style
While many visitors to Saddleback Mountain will want to spend as much time as possible outside enjoying recreational opportunities, thawing out can be just as fun! The Saddleback Lodge provides guests with a beautiful post and beam aesthetic to enjoy when they need to relax and perhaps settle in for a hot cocoa and the view. The lodge itself enjoys a full wall of incredible windows facing the mountain so that even when you’re not out exploring, the beauty of the outdoors is brought right inside.
