“Helpful and Kind”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

The owners are really helpful and want you to enjoy the sport of cross country and are willing to take the time to talk with you. Everything is priced reasonable. Enjoy the snow you won't regret the choice.

“Lapland Lake XC Ski Resort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

facilities and views are great. Don't bend over backwards for season pass holders (Little

precipitation last year and did nothing to heal the blow). Expensive.

We wish you had held off on this comment until we were able to pull all of our winter programming together. It is, after all, only mid-September and we are family-operated, not corporate owned. As such, some things take time. As a 2011-12 Season Pass Member you will be receiving two email notifications within the next 10 days. The 2011-12 winter was a very poor snow year throughout the country. At Lapland Lake we were open for skiing only 65+ days. We recognize this short season had an impact on our season pass members and hope everyone who purchased passes last winter will be pleased with what we are offering.

“Lapland Lake Rocks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

I have cross country skied at many venues in North America and I would rate Lapland Lake in the top three in terms of consistency of the grooming, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, and quality of the amenities. Lapland Lake Rocks.

“Winter getaway wounderland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Simply the best. Skiing on the well groomed trails is wounderfull. We bring our family back year after year. For folks who live in an urban environment Lapland is an easy way to get the kids out into the woods for some old fashioned exercise.

Thank you so much! Winter sports are so much fun - cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing for kids and ice-skating may all be found here at Lapland Lake. As I frequently remind those considering taking up a winter sport: if you are going to live in the Northeast, don't wish away the winter. Find a winter sport you love, and you will eagerly anticipate all of the snow Mother Nature delivers to us!

“Lapland Lake always delivers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

As season pass holders, our family has seen many days at Lapland Lake. When other ski areas are patchy or bare, Olavi always seems to work his magic and provide us with fabulous conditions. It doesn't hurt that both he, his wife Ann, and the rest of the staff are so friendly.

Thank you for this! Olavi's 35 years of grooming experience does serve him well, and he seems to be able to work his special magic whenever it is needed. Our staff is terrific, and we appreciate their consistent efforts at making our guests feel warmly welcomed. We are all looking forward to the upcoming winter!
