You know it's spring...  

 

I know it's spring...  

 

but with 8 inches of new snow this week it still feels like winter. This is it the last weekend of the season. :(   If you haven't reached your quota of ski runs for the year, take heart. The base is deep, the snow is soft and there is plenty of terrain. Jared anticipates the trail count will remain high, between 58-66 trails.  

     On Saturday, get an aerial view of our terrain in a helicopter with Acadia Seaplanes. Saddleback Mountain is even more amazing from the air.

     Easter Sunday, our last day of the season, 

is packed with events; Buffet Breakfast at 8:30am; Easter Service at 10am; Easter Egg Hunt with the Easter Bunny at 11am; and find the elusive Golden Egg worth a 2014-15 Season Pass. Hope to see you, Happy Easter.
