XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 12/03

Greetings from the North Country! We received about an inch of snow last night. It’s amazing how just a little snow can really transform the outdoors into a beautiful winter scene! With temps looking to stay cold this week, we will plan to start making snow Tuesday night in preparation for this coming weekend. If all goes to plan, we will have great skiing on the practice area for demos and the Jordyn Ross Ski Clinic this Saturday, December 8th!

The trails will not be open for skiing this weekend unless we receive another few inches of natural snow. We will send out another report if that happens!


Join us this Saturday, December 8th, for the Jordyn Ross Ski Clinics and a FREE wax clinic!

Jordyn Ross, former NMU skier and one of the fastest female skiers in the Michigan Cup, will be returning to lead our annual season kick-off clinic this coming weekend. This is a great opportunity to get your ski season started off on the right… ski!

CLINIC OFFERING VIDEO FEEDBACK! One of the best ways to improve as a skier is to actually see yourself skiing. So, along with realtime coaching, Jordyn will have a pro videographer (Ernie Brumbaugh) film each participant throughout the clinic. Afterwards, Jordyn will provide personalized video feedback!

Clinic Schedule:
Level 1-2 Classic Clinic (beginner/intermediate): 9:30am – 10:45am
Level 2-3 Classic Clinic (beginner/intermediate): 11:15am – 12:30pm
Level 1-2 Skate Clinic (intermediate/advanced): 1:00pm – 2:15pm
Level 2-3 Skate Clinic (intermediate/advanced): 2:45pm – 4:00pm

Or call 800-832-2663 to sign up over the phone.

Stick around for a FREE wax clinic following the ski clinics (approx 4:30pm), as well as the XC Ski HQ Team Potluck Dinner at 6pm!

Remember, the time to shop for skis and ski clothing is NOW while we have a strong inventory. Our suppliers are already running out of certain size skis and boots! Call a ski expert at 800-832-2663 to get your needs met.

Keep doing your snow dance!

All the best,

Mariah, Stu, Bob, Lynne, Erin, Matt, Missy, Becca, Gillian, Crystal, and the rest of the crew
