Spring XC Skiing at Lapland Lakes-Two-fers on Friday!

Tervetuloa! Greetings!

Please note: There is no food service; please bring along a lunch or stop along the way for a sub. Trails are open weekdays from 10am - 4:30pm and weekends from 9am - 4:30pm. We have a few private rooms and tupas (private housekeeping cottages) available this weekend (see rates and package information below.)

Skiing is good! 47km of trails are open for skiing and snowshoeing, and our junior tubing hills are open. The 3km loop directly on Woods Lake is closed (ice is thin) and the hill at the top of the third Karhu expert double diamond loop is closed (less than 1/4km). 35km of xc ski trails are nicely snowcat groomed with trackset and skating lanes.

Surface is a power-tilled mixture of corn snow and loose granular. 12km of pristine trails are also open for snowshoeing. We have a very solid snow base that is serving us nicely during these milder early spring days! Our compacted base averages two-and-a-half feet.

Today, Wednesday, is gorgeous - sunny with a high of 54. Thursday will be cloudy with showers likely by mid-afternoon, a high near 46. Overnight Thursday a mix of rain and snow showers are expected as temperatures fall below freezing. Sunshine returns for Friday (it's Two-fer Friday!) with a high in the mid-50's. Saturday looks good with clouds and a high in the low 50's.

Two-fer Fridays! Bring a friend for free any non-holiday Friday! Buy one pass at the regular price, receive the second pass for free. (Free pass must be of equal or lesser value; no other discounts apply)
