Warm Up to Winter in Delafield
There's no reason to stay indoors when the snow flies! Bundle up and come to Delafield, which is hosting a number of lively events and activities this winter.
Things to do in Wisconsin when there is snow on the ground...
Wide-open spaces in the heart of pristine nature make Delafield an ideal launching point for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The 17-miles of Lapham Peak's cross-country ski trails are a popular wintertime destination. Lapham Peak is the only state park that has a lit trail (2.5-miles) and snow making equipment to help preserve the ski trail for season-long enjoyment. The groomed trails can accommodate for all abilities. Beginners can try out the special 0.4-mile loop made just with them in mind. Ski rentals are available on weekends. The quiet woods of Naga-Waukee Park and the level Glacial Drumlin State Trail are open to cross-country skiers throughout the winter.

Candlelight Skiing - January/February
Ski by the glow of candlelight during these January/February events, which draw skiers from the entire region. Enjoy dinner in the crisp winter air... pre-lit charcoal grills and an inviting bonfire is provided! Don't ski? Enjoy the smooth ice on the skating pond instead! Sponsored by Friends of Lapham Peak. Call 262-646-3025 for more information.
Snowshoe enthusiasts are welcome on many of the trails, with Lapham Peak carving out a special 5-mile trail for this brand of winter fun.
When snow covers the Glacial Drumlin State Trail, it's your chance to take in the best of winter on your snowmobile. The 40-mile trail also connects to other county snowmobile trail systems.
In addition to the outdoor skating pond in Lapham Peak, Delafield has added a new outdoor skating rink! The Grand Opening of the Oakwood Park Ice Skating Rink was December 21, 2013. Oakwood Community Park is a 39-acre park located on the northwest corner of STH 83 and Oakwood Road. Entrance to the rink is free, however remember to bring your skates!
