I have been skiing at Lapland Lake since it opened 35 years ago. It remains my favorite cross country ski area in the Northeast. First, the trails are top quality and are excellently groomed. They have been laid out with much thought and are excellently adapted to the terrain. Lapland has trails for skiers of all abilities but my favorite is the 10 kilometer outer loop which has rolling terrain, excellent for skating and double-polling, and a series of challenging hills. Furthermore, Olavi is one of the best trail groomers around. Give him an inch of snow and he will make you smile in admiration of his skills. Finally, most of the trails are laid out in beautifully wooded areas that are a joy to ski in and offer protections from the elements when needed.
The facilities at Lapland are also first class. The lodge is spacious, clean, and very well-maintained. My favorite component is lovely changing room with a shower!!!. Many areas seem to assume that offering a bathroom stall to change in after a vigorous workout is sufficient. Lapland knows better and it is just one more example of the thought and care that goes in to making this a special place to ski.
