Anyway - awesome day at Saddleback. Was able to finagle a day off and got up to ski with the family. Had everything open off the Rangeley. For those willing to hike the Northwest Pass - the upper Nightmare and Governor skied extremely well. Still a bit early season in that some of the natural un-groomed trails had some twigs etc but it certainly did not diminish the experience. The glades skied GREAT - by far the earliest we ever got in the woods.

More pics and a video report on my blog.http://maineskifamily.blogspot.com/2012/12/ski-trip-report-saddleback-maine.html

One other pic I didn't put on my blog. This is my last run down Upper Professor. I was still amazed at this point in the day how much snow there was on the trails. It was BURIED.

Am I too old to be adopted?

Looks AWESOME and like a lot of fun in the glades. Saddleback is high on my must-ski list.

This is actually a little gully you ski down then up to The Pass cross cut trail. So my son was on top of the trail, and I was skiing down the gully soon to ski up to where he was.
