Skiied Saddleback with my family over Christmas. I am now 22 and my first time skiing ever was at Saddleback when I was 10 years old -- but I haf not been back until now. I was absoluely breathtaken when we arrived.. it has changed so much and it looks amazing. This may be repititious, but the T-Bars must go. (I have a bruise to prove my inexperience with them!!).
We had such a blast in the new SouthRidge condominiums, too. We were a few of the first people to stay there and we enjoyed it to the fullest. Beautiful view of Rangely and the lakes!
I agree that it's a hard place to go for a day trip, especially in snowy weather. Route 4 is not pleasant traveling in a storm.
