Access Road Construction Update

If you're headed up to the mountain, please be aware there is active road work on Saddleback Mountain Road. Crews are currently working on full-length culvert removal and installation. The plan is to start rock removal this week, weather permitting. Please drive slowly as the traffic control zone will be fluid and moving the entire length of the project.

Saddleback Mountain is excited to announce that broadband wireless internet is now available to homeowners on the mountain. Saddleback has teamed with locally based “Saddleback Technology” (SBT) an internet solutions provider, to bring Trail Runner broadband internet to the region.

“Reliability and speed have always been an issue in the past,” says Frank Murphy, CEO of SBT. “This partnership will provide a reliable internet connection with the latest technology. For those of us that live on or around Saddleback Mountain and have experienced a loss of internet connectivity, welcome to SBT." Service is available now. 

There's plenty of great riding as cooler days approach! Saddleback's Bike Park & Shop are open Labor Day weekend, Saturday - Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. but both will be closed on Labor Day.

Lift-Serviced Mountain Biking

They have an update on lift-serviced mountain biking. It's unfortunately not the update we want to deliver. Saddleback will not offer lift-serviced mountain biking this fall. We've made every effort to make this happen, but ultimately, material delays and a manufacturer's error resulted in their not being able to install the lift carriers this season. We're just as bummed as you are. Instead of focusing on this disappointing situation, they are focusing  energy on the snowmaking, lift, and lodging projects currently underway on the mountain to make the 22/23 season an incredible one.
