Lapham Peak Friends Snowmaking Project

Lapham Peak is Open Daily from 6am to 9pm

Lapham Peak Friends Snowmaking Committee

The Snowmaking Committee of the Friends of Lapham Peak raises money to fund snowmaking operations, maintenance, and capital improvements, by pursuing grants from public and private sources, and by hosting events such as the Summer Solstice, Fright Hike, the Lapham Loppet, and others throughout the year.  Most importantly, the Committee also receives donations directly from skiers and other supporters by mailed-in donations, or online.

Great News: we began making snow on December 6th, 2021!  By early January 2022, we had the full manmade trail system open for skiing! Keep an eye on the Trail Conditions page for the latest information.
