Here is a selection of top photos from over years at Maplelag.
Beautiful summer weather this week. Cooling down nicely at nights, low humidity and dew points and temps in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s with dry conditions. A passing shower on Friday evening leaving a few hundreths of an inch of moisture behind. Work continues on the course for the Laddies Loppet mountain bike weekend and things are looking great. We have been riding the course almost daily and conditions are fast. The deer flies haven’t been to much of an issue and the cooler nights seem to be slowing them down. We are working on the areas that are brushed over on the singletrack and have been mowing on ski trail portions of the course. We will begin mowing the other ski trails in a few weeks to prepare them for the winter. The trails are open for riding. Please drop us a note. if you have questions about riding. There is no trail fee to use the trails and no services available at the lodge with the language camps in session. The trail starts behind the Great Northern building and is marked from that point for beginner loop and intermediate/expert loop. We have taken a break from working on the new singletrack by Twin Lakes since we have been working on the Laddies Loppet course. We are hoping to make a 3-4 mile loop with completion date set for September/October. Lots of critters and insects in the woods and a nice variety of wildflowers.

Closing banquet at the Maplelag “parilla” for the first session of the Portuguese language camp, “Mar E Florista”. This was the first year Portuguese was offered through the Concordia Language Villages. Rooms still available for the Laddies Loppet mountain bike weekend. Trail report on the trails page.
