    • Lapham Peak Unit, Kettle Moraine State Forest; W329 N846 Cty C, Delafield, WI

    Lapham Peak is the No. 1 location for cross country skiing in Southeast Wisconsin for many reasons, including 5 kilometers of lighted trails, of which 2.1 kilometers are served by snowmaking. Weeknights at the Peak are alive with activity, with the Peak Nordic Kids on Monday, and adult and high school racing on Wednesday. This year, we are once again designating Tuesdays as NSCM Night beginning January 8th. 

    The event is very informal. Show up when you feel like, or set a time to meet your friends in the Evergreen Shelter or on the trail. Stride or skate a couple of loops around the lighted or snowmaking trails, and then around 8:00, come back to the Evergreen shelter building to have refreshments with the group. Bring something simple to share – your beverage of choice, and an easy snack. No advanced sign-up is required, but if you have questions or suggestions, contact John McCarthy at, or call 414-412-0331 - but you should expect to leave a message, because he’ll probably be out at Lapham, skiing.
