September welcomes the Autumn season with some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the country, while bountiful game including moose, deer and upland birds beckon the advent of the hunting season. By November, snow blankets the region, signaling the start to alpine ski season and the opening of Rangeley’s Saddleback Ski area.
