About the Ski Resort

Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center is tucked away in the quiet, peaceful south-central region of New York's famed six-million acre Adirondack Forest Preserve. Founded in 1978 by former U.S. Olympic cross country skier Olavi Hirvonen, this unique Finnish-flavored resort is situated on hundreds of carefully managed acres. Its mountain setting, combined with the cozy, comfortable surroundings and warm hospitality of the Hirvonen family, create an idyllic setting for recreation and relaxation every season of the year.

Abundant natural snowfalls combined with impeccable grooming performed with state-of-the-art snowcats ensures cross country skiers a superb winter experience. Expertly designed trails appeal to all skiers from the novice to the expert, using classical or skating techniques. Visitors also delight in snowshoeing, ice skating, sledding, kicksledding, tubing and a full calendar of events from November into April.

70-acre spring fed Woods Lake boasts a sandy beach with superb swimming, canoeing, rowboating and fishing. The absence of motors and virtually undeveloped shorelines provide a tranquil setting inviting to loons, ducks, beaver, herons and the like. Forests of hardwood and pine, mountain streams and wildlife sightings offer guests a unique opportunity to interact with our natural environment. Biking and hiking are popular pursuits. Crisp autumn temperatures create spectacular foliage displays and presage winter's return.

A full range of rental equipment is available, including skate ski/classic, snowshoes, pulks and ice skates. If that's not enough, Lapland Lake also has real live reindeer.
