Saddleback ‘Needs’ $3M or Resort Won’t Open

Resort general manager says Saddleback needs the money in 2 weeks to secure its future.

The folks at Saddleback ski area in Rangeley, Maine announced that unless the resort receives $3 million to fund a new lift, it won’t open for the 2015-16 ski season.

The resort’s General Manager Chris Farmer says the push for a new lift, which would replace the 1964-built Rangeley Double Chair, is crucial to the mountain’s future. However, Farmer says the current chair is still safe and fully operational—just not the most ideal ride to the top.

"NASTAR is where most ski racers in America, including myself, were introduced to the thrill of going fast and competing on skis," says Ted Ligety, and that's what the partnership is designed to do.

The U.S. Ski Team is taking over operations of Nastar, one of the country's most well-known recreational ski racing programs. As part of the agreement, the U.S. Ski Team will assume day-to-day responsability of Nastar in an effort to capitalize on the success of U.S. Ski Team athletes and bring more awareness to ski racing.

Nastar, which was created by SKI Magazine, began more than 45 years ago and is now at 115 ski areas throughout the country with more than 165,000 racer days per year.
