Monday, March 10, 2014 - Ski Trail
We celebrated a great winter season at Maplelag with some fun crust cruising this morning on area lakes and jibskating yesterday afternoon. Thanks to everyone who came to Maplelag this past season! We appreciate your visit very much!
Grooming plans: Even though we are closing for the season with no services available, we will be grooming skaters waltz from time to time for personal skate skiing. Please contact us directly about limited spring skiing options.
To ensure skiing at Maplelag in the future, please do not use the trails this spring without contacting us first. Thanks!
Total snowfall this season at 54″.
