RANGELEY, ME – Saddleback Ski Resort in the legendary Rangeley Lakes Region will be open on Good Friday, April 22, offering $29 lift tickets to Maine residents. Non-resident lift tickets are $35. Saddleback has extended its season by operating Saturdays and Sundays into May as snow conditions warrant.

“Our cooler temperatures are sustaining the snow pack on the mountain. We have had over 265 inches of snow this season. It is a great opportunity to offer special pricing on Good Friday for Maine skiers to take advantage of an extra day of skiing,” according to Chris Farmer, Saddleback General Manager. “We expect our snow cover to last into May. We have a full schedule of Spring skiing events planned.”

Easter weekend events at Saddleback include an Easter Morning Service at the top of the Rangeley Chair at 9:30am with the Reverend Peter Panagore of Daily Devotions, an Easter Egg Hunt at 11:30am, an appearance by the Easter Bunny, and the hunt for the Golden Egg. Find the Golden Egg and win a Saddleback Season Pass for 2011-2012 which are now on sale at the lowest prices of the year.

Saddleback is offering a $10 gas voucher with the purchase of a 2-day lift ticket and a Spring Weekend Getaway package for $88 per person.
