snowmaking pictureThis was the ninth season of snowmaking at Lapham Peak.  Planning and design of the snowmaking system began in 2005, with the pond and pumphouse completed in late 2006, and a 0.6 kilometer loop of manmade snow created in January of 2007.  The system has been expanded and improved since then to the current system, which is capable of providing a thick layer of manmade snow on about 1.5 kilometers of trail.  The manmade snow loop at Lapham Peak has, on many occasions during those nine years of operation, been the only skiable snow in southeast Wisconsin.


The reliability of the manmade snow has resulted in the development and growth of several programs, including the Peak Nordic Kids, and the Tuesday Night Lessons, that were not previously viable, due to the sporadic nature of natural snow on the trails.

As of September 2015, $450,000 has been raised. But we are presently in need of more donations to expand the manmade section to include the above additions. You can help keep the “snowball” rolling. A donation of any amount is appreciated.  Special recognition will be given to donors who meet these levels:

  • Avalanche $10,000 & Up
  • Glacier     $5,000
  • Blizzard   $1,000
  • Snowman $500
  • Snowball $100
