Saddleback opens Saturday


Long a sleeper in western Maine, this season, Saddleback unveils the new Kennebago quad chairlift to the summit, replacing (finally!) the ancient T-bar, a black-diamond tow if there ever was one. Also new are four trails (three black diamond beauties from the summit; the fourth a greenie in the beginner area). And Sunday is Maine Day, with tickets just $25 for Maine residents (reason enough to  move here).
