Saddleback Mountain is located in the heart of Maine's Appalachian Mountain Range. The broad shouldered, mile-long summit ridge rises to a 4,116-foot summit. Saddleback's proximity to its well-known neighbor, Sugarloaf, has caused some to overlook the mountain, but more and more skiers are looking for an alternative to the crowds and are discovering this area. Saddleback's reputation is one of providing uncrowded, big mountain skiing. With a vertical drop of 1,830 feet, and a base lodge at 2,286 feet above sea level, Saddleback is a big mountain for New England. The ski area trail network covers an area three miles wide and offers ski terrain for every ability level.
