Mainely Skiing Weekly Email (May 6, 2022)

Welcome to the first Mainely Skiing Summer Email! This email will be sent straight to your inbox whenever we release new emails. In this email, we will highlight all the summer activities in or around the Rangeley Area!

Summer Activities:

Now that all the Maine ski resorts are closed, it’s time to start thinking about summer. After all, the Maine Warden Service declared official ice-out on Rangeley Lake on May 5, at 5:00am. Here at Mainely Skiing, we have your summer bucket list all ready to go and we’re confident you will have a great off-season. Click the link below to read all the various summer activities available in the greater Rangeley area.


Have you ever wanted to try fishing? If yes, boy do we have a summer activity for you! Try out fly fishing with our man, Steve Kidder. Steve is the Supervisor of Lift Operators at Saddleback, Maine. You’ve probably seen him running around the Rangeley Lift at some point this past season. With guided outdoor tourism on the rise, get ahead of the crowd and book a reasonably priced guided fly fishing trip today! This is definitely on my summer bucket list! Check out his website below.

Quill Hill:

Have you ever wanted a 360-degree view of a sunset in the Western Maine mountains? Take a trip up to the summit of Quill Hill. With picnic tables at the top, even lunch up there is spectacular! For more information, click on their website!

Mountain Biking:

If you’ve visited Saddleback this year you’ve probably seen the Rangeley Lakes Trails Center Yurt. This is a perfect all-season activity with Biking and Hiking trails in the summer months and XC-Skiing in the winter. Every Sunday morning, they host Dirt Church, a great way to get outdoors and onto a mountain bike with your friends. Every Sunday is different and never the same! Visit their website today!

Saddleback Mountain Biking:

Last summer, Saddleback opened up its own mountain biking trails on the mountain. This summer they are back with lift-serviced downhill mountain biking accessed via the South Branch Quad. Saddleback officials say they expect the lift to start spinning around late July. For more information, click the link below.


What a nice week to be outside in Maine. This weekend is looking to be more of the same great weather across the state. Plan ahead and get outside. Both Saturday and Sunday look like pure sun and almost no winds.
