Saddleback Reopened for Skiing April 21 for Employee Ski Day

RANGELEY, ME — Although April 15th was the official end of the 2011-2012 Saddleback ski season, the mountain reopened its main lift Saturday, April 21st so staff could ski and ride as part of its annual end of season employee party. The skiing and riding was top to bottom off the Rangeley Chairlift.
Recognized for their service to Saddleback were Bill Jones, Hack Spiller and
Neil Stewart, all of Rangeley, who announced their retirement.
