XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 11/07

We received about 3 inches of snow throughout the day yesterday. It is plenty enough for dogs and babies to enjoy (see below), and may even allow some diehards the opportunity to scratch the skiing itch (rock skis recommended), but there are still parts of the trail that lack full snow coverage, and the snow we do have is still thin. So, expect to "find" some leaves and dirt if you do go, and know that you may also find a lot of fun!

Ginzu Dana will be rolling all the trails this morning in an effort to begin establishing a base – we do not expect good conditions to come of the rolling; it is more of an effort to push the snow into the ground.

It’s looking nice and cold in the 10 day forecast, is promising for snow-making in the near future… stay tuned πŸ™‚

With all this November snow, it’s definitely time to get your ski kit fully ready!! We are open every day, and the Pre-Season Sale is in full swing. Shop our deep selection of winter and XC clothing, and cross country skis and packages, all on sale!

FYI, the Stone Turtle Cafe will open in early December, but until then, we do have a couple tables set up for BYO picnic lunches in the Day Lodge. Or, enjoy your post-rock-ski snack in the new outdoor Ice Dome Igloo (pictured with Donnie above).

We hope to see you soon!

-Mariah, Stu, Lynne, Bob, Erin, Missy, Gill, Ethan, Krista and the crew

Mount Snow is nearly finished! This photo was taken May 19th. Stay tuned for the official melt date, and subsequent contest winners, undoubtedly coming very soon. ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Mother’s Day from the crew at #xcskihq! Mother Nature gifted us with a thick blanket of snow this morning... a surprising but beautiful sight (also the perfect consistency for making a snowman!). Cheers to all you moms out there - you truly make the world go round, and you are so, so loved!! @ Cross Country Ski Headquarters ... See MoreSee Less

Forty some years ago an old timer in the UP swore he’d once skied on the 4th of July. Who can say it can’t happen again!

Unbelievable! Looks awesome! 😍

This crew enjoyed some great spring skiing on the #xcskibq trails yesterday! Take a break from the news and the noise and head to the woods for a refreshing dose of normalcy. Rock skis recommended, and we have some to borrow if you need. Open every day until March 31st. ... See MoreSee Less
