Saddleback Maine's Armed Forces Day Held on January 10

All Present and Past Members of the Armed Forces Ski Free

Randeley, ME - All U.S. Military veterans who have served in the armed forces from WWII to the present can ski at Saddleback for free on Saddleback's Armed Forces Day, Sunday, January 10, 2010. Military ID or DD214 will be required. There will be a ceremony at noon at the Base Lodge with Major General John "Bill" Libby of the Maine National Guard acting as MC, a live band from Mt. Blue High School in Farmington and bagpipes as well. This is Saddleback's way of showing the men and women who have served in the armed forces their appreciation.
"We are offering this day as a token of our appreciation to the men and women who have served our country," said Warren Cook, CEO and general manager of Saddleback. "All of our staff are looking forward to sharing our mountain with our troops this Sunday."
Saddleback is offering a special lodging package as well. All veterans can reserve a Ski & Stay package for $49.00 per day/night (at max occupancy). Other non-veteran occupants would pay only $69.00 each. Reservations can be made by calling 877-864-5441.
Saddleback also has a Learn to Ski or Ride Special for only $49.00 for veterans, which includes rental of either ski or snowboard equipment and a 2-hour lesson. Veterans that don't know how to ski can still take advantage of this special day. Veterans who choose to come again this season may purchase two days for only $118 and receive a third day free. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting the Ski and Ride School at 877-864-5441 ext 139.

  1. Sugar Bowl Ski Resort , which is among the few remaining privately owned resorts in Lake Tahoe area, was the first ski area in California to have a chairlift and also the first in the United States to install a gondola lift.
