The Lapham Peak Friends, in cooperation with the DNR and community businesses, have embarked on an ambitious project to bring snow-making capabilities to the ski trails at Lapham Peak Unit of the Southern Kettle Moraine State Forest. When completed, the application of man-made snow will extend the ski season and improve the quality of the snow base for the trail users.
During the winter, when snow is present, Lapham Peak is one of the busiest, if not the busiest, park in the Wisconsin State Park System. Known for its challenging terrain and excellent ski trail grooming, the park enjoys a regional reputation that draws large numbers of skiers from the Milwaukee and Madison metro areas, as well as from Chicago and northern Illinois. The park is the only unit in the state park system to offer lighted ski trails.
The Lapham Peak Friends have plans to complete this project in four phases.
Phase 1 - Completed
Phase 2- Completed
1.2 Kilometers of Trail
Phase 3 - In Progress
Add 2 Kilometers of Trial
* Includes $100,000 Snow Cat
Phase 4 - Future
Add another 2 Kilometers of Trial
Total Estimated Cost: $855,000
Total Tail Distance: 5 Kilometers
A special fund has been established for the snowmaking project within the Lapham Peak Friends organization. The initial fundraising goal for this project is $500,000. A donation of any amount is appreciated. Special recognition will be given to donors who meet these levels:
Avalanche $10,000 & up
Blizzard $1,000 & up
Snowman $500 & up
