$29 MAINE DAY IS SUNDAY, MARCH 2ND 

     Another $29 Maine Day for Maine residents this Sunday, March 2nd. Imagine... you can ski for the entire weekend at Saddleback for what it costs for one day at other large resorts. This year we made 38% more snow than last year; that deep base of man-made snow bodes well for great spring skiing and riding right through Easter. The conditions have been fantastic this year despite less than average natural snow fall.

     The March Calendar of Events is full of exciting on-the-snow Spring skiing events. We're ready to roll the barbecue out to the sundeck of the Base Lodge. How about you?
