Resort Guide:

Just because it is September doesn’t mean you can’t get in the winter spirit. Check out our Guide to Saddleback. You’ll find all the information you need such as Travel Information, Lift Opening/Closing Times for weekends and weekdays, Mountain Stats, and Detailed Trail Descriptions including my favorites. Click the link below to learn all about our home mountain!

Scenic Lift Rides:

Catch a ride up Sunday River’s Chondola to North Peak before it is too late. The Chondola is dog, kid, and grandparent-friendly, so you’ll want to pack up your whole family for this scenic adventure. Lift rides are available from 10AM-4PM on Saturdays and Sundays from early July to mid-October. You can buy tickets online in advance, but will need to pick up your tickets upon arrival. You can also purchase tickets on-site at South Ridge Lodge. Lift tickets will be issued until 3:30PM or until capacity is reached. If you plan to ride the lift back to the bottom, please load before 4PM. For more information, visit the link below.
