    Saddleback 1/13





    No friends on a powder day.



    Couldnt convince anyone to tag along with me, so I headed up to Maine solo.....
    Stayed at a friends place at sunday river -- but had free ticket to Saddleback that I couldn't see go to waste...

    Got to saddleback pretty late in the day, noon, but missed some mixed/wet conditions and it was snowing pretty good when I arrived.... They had a mid-day groomer on Green Weaver and I harvested some fresh cord....

    The main double was running, but the quad wasn't running yet-- so I just explored everything I could off of the double.... skiers right side of any trail had more wind-blown. Golden Smelt was a lot of fun, as were the Ghost, Doctor, and Devil.

    Saddleback is on my hit list for the Spring. I've made it up to the Loaf the last two Aprils. I did drive by Saddleback on my way home last year, looks like a fun mountain. I'd love to ski Maine in the Winter, just so many other options closer to home. I'm only tempted when they are the only ones open. Sugarloaf is a blast in the Spring, I'm sure Saddleback is too.

    Kudos to getting after it RJ,
    Anyday on the mountain is better than not being on the mountain.

    It was my favorite of the day I think! Classic saddleback winding trail.

    I pulled the data off of my little black box. (Qstarz Q1000P) Definately fun to see where I went at the end of the day, helps me see what I missed too... Too bad the Google Earth dataset for the area is 2002 vintage -- I think SB cut more trails since then.
