Please share a story with us of a family who might need a little extra help this holiday. Tell us why they should be a finalist. Together, our sponsors will help make this a 'Heartwarming Holiday.'

Saddleback is bigger than you think...and different from the rest. Although they are one of New England's finest family ski resorts, they provide a high-elevation alpine experience with classic New England terrain and abundant snowfall. Saddleback's 2000 ft. vertical is greater than several well-known big resorts and their 4120 ft. mountain with summit snowfields is one of only 7 ski mountains in the New England that high. 66 trails and glades range from gentle beginner slopes to rugged double black diamonds in their Kennebago Steeps, the largest steep skiing and riding facility in the East. Saddleback is an honest alternative to today's large resorts. Voted #1 'Overall Favorite Resort' and the #1 'Favorite Resort for Grooming' by the 'Snow East 2012 Reader Survey.' Also, voted 'Top Adventure Mountain' in the East by 'SKI Magazine.' Plus, #1 'Value' and #2 in Overall Satisfaction and Character according to a 'SKI Magazine' Reader Survey.
