XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 01/10


Skate lanes are turning out great this morning!

More snow is here!! We received about 4-5 inches of snow in the last 36 hours, which has set up nicely on top of our base. It continues to snow, and Groomers Mike and Bob are Ginzu snow-combing the skate lanes and setting classic tracks this morning. We expect great, mid-winter conditions on all trails for classic and skating by 11am this morning! With the pleasantly cold temps in the forecast, conditions should stay great for the foreseeable future!

Today’s Stone Turtle Yoga lunch special is the Classic Hammy Sammy! Sliced honey baked ham, Swiss cheese, tomato, and stone ground mustard on a Swiss bun, grilled to melty perfection. Served with Great Lakes Chips and a pickle!

Now that conditions are so good, it’s time to take some demo skis out on the trails! Try some new skate or classic skis from Fischer, Salomon, Rossignol, Alpina and Atomic, free of charge. All skis, boots and ski packages are on sale!!

Join us this weekend for some great events! Our weekly Free Ski Lesson is Saturday at 10:30am, followed by Fire Grilled Pizzas on the sun deck from noon to 3pm. Sunday, join us for a major culinary event: Paella cooked over open flame in a giant cast iron pan on our outdoor BBQ pit! Seatings at 1pm and 3pm.

The snow is here, the skiing is great, the chili is on, and Donnie can’t wait to see you! See you at HQ!!

Wasn’t there a p-tex on the side skate ski in the late 80s? Nice graphics on the ski...

Whoa! Do we have to wax the sidewalls? :D

I’m in the market for new skate skis, so would like to try them out!

Sunset on the Manitou trail. When you can end the day with a sunset ski, you know that life is pretty darn good. ❄️#sunsetski #manitoutrail #perspective #puremichigan ... See MoreSee Less
