Lapland Lake in the southern Adirondacks has been offering a unique winter experience to individuals, couples, and families for over 35 years with cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, lessons, equipment sales and rentals, and more.

A Cross-Country Skiing Trail System Like No Other

The trail system at Lapland Lake was designed by former US Olympic skier Olavi Hirvonen and is nestled amongst thousands of acres of pristine state forestland in the Adirondacks. The majority of the trails are one-way, which is uncommon in the cross-country skiing industry, and provides an incredibly peaceful woodland experience for guests.

An impressive 38 out of 50 of the kilometers of trails are trackset with skating lanes. Lake Trail is illuminated nightly exclusively for the use of overnight guests. 

Impeccably Groomed Trails & Top Notch Equipment

Grooming is a huge priority at Lapland Lake. Significant investments are made to ensure the grooming equipment is state-of-the-art and results in superbly groomed trails. Trails are groomed regularly with the utmost attention to detail to ensure the best possible cross-country skiing experience for everyone.

Backcountry Snowshoeing

The 12 kilometers of snowshoeing trails are ungroomed, marked, and mapped, to provide a different kind of wilderness experience. The snowshoeing terrain ranges from flat to rolling hills to steep grades as you make your way through thick forests.

Lapland Lake is also just minutes from the 133-mile, state-owned Northville-Lake Placid Trail which is excellent for both snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

Beginners are Welcome

Lapland Lake welcomes first-timers, experts, and everyone in between. Their PSIA-certified (Professional Ski Instructors of America) Ski School consists of 15 job-sharing Ski School instructors who offer the best instruction through private lessons, semi-private lessons, and group lessons to junior and adult skiers of all abilities. 

The Ski School instructors have 115 years of combined teaching experience among them, an average of more than seven years per person - and all of this experience is right at Lapland Lake. These individuals are not only excellent skiers but dedicated and patient teachers and communicators.

Even More Winter & Year-Round Fun

In addition to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, Lapland Lake also offers kids clubs, pulk sleds, kick-sledding, ice skating, snow tubing, and more. 

However, Lapland Lake is actually a full year-round destination for recreational activities, with hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and much more going on during the warmer months. 

They also offer prime dining and lodging.
