Maplelag is proud to be a supporter of the growing and expanding high school Nordic ski racing in Minnesota. We provide scholarships and donations for many teams in Minnesota. We were disappointed to have to cancel last weekends ski camp but appreciate the teams coming this weekend and look forward to all the ski teams coming the remainder of the season.
We caught the action at the Grand Rapids Invite yesterday and photos and results are posted on skinnyski.com

We missed out on the big snow that hit central MN yesterday but well below sub freezing temps the past 4 days has resulted in ice on the area ponds and even smaller lakes around Maplelag allowing for early season family skating on the smaller ponds. Latest trail and snow report on the trail report page.

Incredible fall weather this week as the poplar and tamarack trees are in their peak of fall color. Even though the days have been warm, we have had frost the past 6 days, cooling down the soil nicely as we continue to prepare for the winter months.
We hit our peak of fall colors around September 23rd at Maplelag but there is some still great autumn scenes deep in the woods on the ski trails and the swamps and sloughs with tamaracks are most colorful.

The fall color around Maplelag is becoming more colorful each day with still a nice background of greens. At Maplelag we feel this is the best time of year to take in the change of seasons. Be sure to check back for early fall color photos later this week and watch live on the webcam on the trail report page!
