Saddleback Ski Lodge

In Rangeley, Maine, check out the Saddleback Ski Lodge both before and after your day on the hill.

Skiers may love the snow, but most of us do not love the cold. Soup and Chili are the perfect answers to these problems at the end of a day of frostbitten noses and numb toes. If it's been a really good day, you'll be able to feel the warm liquid move down your throat and fill your belly. If it's a really, really good day, the soup or chili came in a bread bowl. There's nothing quite as genius as edible dishes.
Where to Find: The Goat, Keystone, CO. The title on the outside of the building says it all: "The Goat: Soup and Whiskey."
Follow it With: Whiskey

If you’ve ever wanted to splice a smelt-fishing experience into a ski trip, Rangeley, Maine, would be the place to do it. Here’s the step-by-step plan: (1) Grab a Sidewinder breakfast sandwich (fried egg and meat on a butter-toasted bagel) at the coffee bar in Saddleback’s post-and-beam ski lodge. (2) Ski Saddleback’s twisty New England–style runs and new Casablanca Glades all morning. (3) Grab a lunch of award-winning chili in the lodge cafeteria. (4) Drive to nearby Rangeley, knock on an ice-shack on the lake to see if the local who answers will show you how to set a smelt trap. (5) Head to the Smelt ‘n’ Swig Pub upstairs in the lodge for live music and a few Maine microbrews. []
