Cross-country ski trail conditions for Kettle Moraine State Forest - Lapham Peak Unit

Kettle Moraine State Forest - Lapham Peak Unit

Kettle Moraine State Forest - Lapham Peak Unit trails

Trails are groomed for skate and classic cross-country skiing and were groomed (corduroy/levelled) on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 10:00 PM  More...

Comments: The man made loop was groomed Saturday night and is in good shape. The base is extremely firm and icy. The quarter inch of snow we received Saturday was mixed in and skiers should be able to catch an edge. Temperatures are predicted to hit 40 degrees Sunday. Conditions will soften as the day goes on. The classical track was not reset due to the firm base. There is a single track set around the entire loop except for Summer Stage hill, which was still too firm to cut in a new track. We will continue to monitor the conditions over the next few days. Rain is predicted for Monday. We will not be grooming if it is raining or above freezing.

Cross-country ski trails

Get Outdoors and go skiing!

Wisconsin's state parks and forests take on a special beauty during winter. Enjoy the winter scenery, get healthy exercise and have some fun by cross-country skiing on hundreds of miles of trails. Some trails are tracked for traditional skiing, some groomed for skate-style skiing and many are wide enough to accommodate both styles. There are also numerous miles of ungroomed trail for skiers to explore.

State Trail Pass

Most properties require a vehicle admission sticker to park at the property. Several properties also require a state trail pass for all skiers age 16 and older. These fees go directly to support the operation of the Wisconsin State Park System.

Groomed Trails

Wisconsin's state park trails are maintained by department staff and volunteer groomers. Ski trail conditions are subject to change and may be closed if snow conditions are poor. Click on the link for the property where you are interested in skiing for more information.

Hiking, snowshoeing and pets

To keep ski trails in the best condition possible, once the trails are snow-covered, hiking, snowshoeing, pets and other uses are not permitted on the ski trails. Other property trails are designated for these uses. Skijoring and dog-sledding are also not allowed on groomed ski trails. For more information about these activities on DNR lands, see:
