Saddleback GM elected to the Maine Ski Hall of Fame's class of 2022 

Jim Quimby, general manager of Saddleback, is a member of the 2022 Maine Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame.

Jim Quimby, general manager of Saddleback ski resort in Rangeley, was inducted into the Maine Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame along with six others at a Nov. 5 ceremony at Sugarloaf.
Quimby's history at Saddleback began when he started skiing at the mountain as a child in the mid-1960s. After serving with the Air Force he returned to the slopes in 1998, and has held various roles since, primarily focusing on mountain operations.
He was a caretaker of the property, facilities and equipment while Saddleback closed in 2015. After the mountain was purchased and reopened in 2020, he was promoted to senior vice president of mountain operations and was an influential part of Saddleback’s rebirth and revitalization. In June 2022, Quimby was promoted to general manager.     
“Ultimately, my primary focus and responsibility are to the staff at Saddleback and to our local communities,” he said. “Saddleback is more than a business to us. The mountain, the community, and the guests are all part of our family.”

Saddleback Mountain was founded in 1960 and, at 4,120 feet of elevation and 2,000 feet of vertical, is Maine’s third-largest mountain and the largest independently owned ski resort in the East. 

The Maine Ski & Snowboard Museum Hall of Fame was established to recognize those who are dedicated to Maine’s skiing and snowboarding industry. 

Quimby is one of seven inductees in the 2022 class that includes:

  • Scott Broomhall of Rumford, a cross-country ski coach with the US Ski Team and assistant XC coach with Harvard University
  • Robert “Bud” Fisher of Brooksville, a cross-country ski coach at the national level and in Norway
  • Meredith Elcome of South Portland, who dedicated 40 years to adaptive skiing in Maine.
  • Roxanne Nash-Marc, who coached both boys and girls to nine state championships at Mt. Abram
  • Peter Howard, a Hull's Cove resident instrumental to the growth of Professional Ski Instructors of America
  • Russell Currier, a Stockholm cross-country skier who competed around the world, including five world championships and two Olympics
