Maplelag is a destination cross-country ski resort and conference center located just 20 miles from Detroit Lakes in NW Minnesota. More than a dozen of their unique cabins, including a "switch yard" with two converted sleeping cabooses, stand within the maple-basswood climax forest next to Little Sugarbush Lake.

Following a fire in 1999, the main lodge has been rebuilt and is now open, again housing the famous bottomless cookie jars and stained glass windows. Meals are served family-style in the lodge dining hall, and special events such as the Saturday night variety show and dance are always a favorite. A feeling of community and warmth is created by the layout of the lodge and cabins. The new lodge also has several meeting rooms, making Maplelag an ideal conference center or reunion location.

Expertly groomed, private trails extend for 64km through the woods surrounding Maplelag, and guests can take advantage of a ski rental equipment as well as ski lessons. Other winter activities such as Kicksledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, and ice fishing are also available. Maplelag features the state's largest hot tub, along with saunas and steam rooms, and massage therapists are available after a day of play in the snow.
