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.

Returned again and was met with 6i of fluffy snow, great trails, friendly staff. I just love the place. Ann and Olavi may be moving on (a bit), but it's hard to beat a day on the trails, skiing or snowshoeing.

Its well worth the drive to greater Metropolitan Northville for the great skiing, and warm hospitality at Lapland Lake. The trails are very well maintained, and the Finnish ethos permeates the enviornment. For those looking for an alternative to glitzy, overbuilt down hill ski resorts, this wilderness and sense of peace here is the perfect tonic. You can ski out... More

We went up to Lapland Lake for Thanksgiving, and we got the added bonus of over a foot of snow to ski on! Having the holiday dinner in our tupa was perfect - it was peaceful and cozy, and our surroundings were beautiful, all covered in snow. It gave us time to be together as a couple without the stress... More

We visited Lapland Lake ski area for years but have not stayed in the tupas till this March. The experience was amazing. The tupa was very comfortable, with plenty of amenities. And it was really great that ski tracks started just near your door! We were lucky to get fresh snow, so everything around looked gorgeous. Alex and Maria V.

I've heard about this Nordic skiing destination for years, and somehow never got a chance to get out there until this year. What a great place! Very warm welcome by the proprietor Ann, absolutely perfect skiing conditions and fabulously maintained trails. I went with my teen-aged son, and we couldn't believe how often we felt like we had the these... More
