Each February for the past five years, we have joined four or five five other couples for a delightful winter weekend at Maplelag, enjoying all the resort has to offer. Among us are those who cross-country ski morning, noon, and night and those who never step foot on a trail. Playing cards, eating, visiting, eating, putting together jigsaw puzzles, eating, taking the Polar Plunge, eating, baking in the sauna, eating, relaxing in the giant hot tub---and more eating--- occupy time off the trails. A few strike out on the snow shoe paths as well. The food is plentiful and superb; the Richards family and staff are attentive and clearly enjoy running the resort. Once our weekend is over, we book for the next year and begin looking forward to our return.
