Maplelag Fire Update October 24th

As we move closer to the winter season, final preparations on the ski trails are occurring like a normal fall. We are clearing leaves, sticks, branches and any deadfall. Having the trails as cleared as possible helps us to open up select trails on minimal snow. The ski trails will be open for day skiing this winter (more below)

Fall grooming on Sap Run, October 21st, 2022.

With the loss of the main lodge on October 10th, we obviously will not be able to feed guests this year and provide the amenities offered from the lodge.

With this situation and other circumstances, we have made the decision to not be open for lodging only. The fire of 1999, we were closed that following winter then opened up for lodging with limited meal service out of the “cat house” building the following winter. At this point, this is not an option considering all the circumstances.

Many of you have already reached out regarding the deposit. We are deeply touched for those reservations that have donated back the deposit. Thank you so very much. For those that wish to have a deposit returned, we will do that, as soon as we are able. The best way to reach us is through email at [email protected]

At this time, we will not plan to carry deposits forward to future reservations with the uncertainty of the lodge being built.

Trails will be open for day skiing on the the ski, snowshoe and fat bike trails. Similar to the COVID season, there will be no services available. Parking in the far lot with portable bathrooms. Click here for ski trail reports.

Ski trail season passes can be purchased on our website. Purchasing season pass now helps with operating and maintenance costs to prepare the trails, equipment repairs to the grooming equipment and property taxes.

Mountain bike trails will be open until November 1st. Click here for trail report. 

Regarding the rebuild, there are still many complex factors to sort out before we make a decision on rebuilding. We appreciate the ideas, the encouragement to rebuild and offers of antique items. Making a decision will take some time. We want to make sure it is the right decision for us, as we always want our guests to have the best experience possible.

Thanks again for all the support of prayers, thoughts, good vibes, financial gifts and our amazing local community of food items. We are at a loss of words and deeply touched.
