Top-notch XC Ski Center. When they say immaculately groomed trails, they're absolutely correct! Overnight cabins/tupas are nice, warm, comfortable and conveniently located a few steps away from the main lodge with a wood-fueled sauna available for overnighters. Can ski out/in to your own cabin/tupa. There's a wax shop open w/free US-long distance phone available 24/7. Tasty Finnish meals. Warm and... More

We've never had a bad time at Lapland Lakes. The place is always welcoming and well cared for. The rates are reasonable and the trails are quite scenic as they wind through the woodland of the southern Adirondacks. It's always been a favorite place to spend a winter day and this day was no exception. It was a Monday morning,... More

Lapland Lakes is our favorite family vacation place for many reasons. First of all, the trails are expertly groomed and meticulously maintained. Once you ski here, other places will not measure up. Secondly, we love to unplug - in the cottages, there is no TV, phone, cell service or internet (you can get internet in the lodge if you need... More

Admittedly, we had great conditions, but it wouldn't change my opinion -- this place is GREAT! Way off the beaten path, this is a series of perfectly groomed, well laid out trails through woods, mild hills, around the lake, over stream, you could ski for hours without hitting the same trail twice (well maybe just me, I'm slow). Seriously every... More

We are a outdoor club and this is our 2nd year staying at Lapland Lakes Ski Center. We totally enjoy our visit there because we just ski out the door; there are beautiful snowshoe trails available and we enjoy them all. Several of the group totally enjoy the sauna while others must take part in night skiing and tubing. There... More

The variety of terrain, meticulously groomed trails (along with backcountry trails for those who prefer this), and the warm, inviting facilities with superb cooking (Finnish specialties and savory, homemade soups, chilis and baked goods) all combine to make Lapland Lake a treasure.

My husband and I recently spent three days at Lapland. My husband is more the "winter type" and I prefer the beach. I have cross-country skiied in the past, and if and when I return to Lapland Lake, I will enjoy skiing again! The trails and the snow are so much better than at home, and the beauty of going...

A friend and I just spent 4 days skiing and snowshoeing at Lapland Lake Cross Country Ski Center. Even though it snowed 12 inches while we were there, the skiing was great. There was also tubing and ice skating which we did not use. Had a tasty lunch at the Tuulan Tupa Grille one day. Everyone is friendly and helpful.

Great cross country skiing less than four hours from NYC. Terrific trails for all levels including on a frozen lake, in a beautiful and secluded Adirondacks setting. Excellent staff, good food, fantastic snow and great workout

Lapland Lake nordic ski resort is the greatest. In addition to cross country skiing on impeccably groomed trails, there is also snow-shoe trails and a few small tubing hills. If you don't have your own equipment, they rent all kinds of gear. Also, I recommend staying there at their Tupas (cottages), right on the trails.
