XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 01/23


Mariah, Stu, Bob, Lynne, and visiting family had a blast on awesome conditions on the Mason Tract yesterday. Join us for the Mason Tract Rendezvous on Feb 8th!

We received an inch of snow yesterday, which will freshen up the trails nicely for today. Great conditions abound on the XC Ski HQ trail system. Groomer Mike will be out early rolling, snow combing the skate lanes, and re-setting tracks where needed. All trails across the street have classic tracks and snowcombed skate lanes. There is 5 to 8 inches of snow packed on the trails, and 8 to 12 inches in the woods. It’s another beautiful day to be out on snow!

THIS WEEKEND: Join us for Bavarian Ski Festival and Live Music!

When: Saturday, Jan 25th
What: German beer, giant commemorative beer steins, authentic German sausage and sauerkraut from Kern’s in Frankenmuth, games, costumes, prizes… and great skiing too! Dust off your Lederhosen and join us for a taste of the Alps, complete with Bavarian-themed games. Ski in unison with your team of three atop our giant pair of “Team Skis” in the Team Ski Time Trials, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Test your strength at Masskrugstemmen, with stein-holding contests for men and women starting at 4:00pm. We encourage all guests to dress in their best German attire for a costume contest at 4:30pm. Special guest German Dave will be serving the delicious Bavarian fare, including giant soft pretzels and German style potatoes! Don’t miss this celebration of heritage and winter fun!

Also, see the Half Wits perform live at the Stone Turtle Cafe on Sunday, Jan 26th! The Half Wits, featuring Wade Whittington and Patrick Harrison, perform live at the Stone Turtle Day Lodge from 1pm to 4pm. This dynamic duo specializes in a mix of classics and contemporary songs, with acoustic guitars, harmonica, and great singing. Grab a beverage, take a seat by the fire, and you’ll be singing along with these two in no time!

Dress for the snow! Shop our wide selection of winter and XC-ski-specific clothing, all on sale. Need a waterproof jacket that is also breathable, stretchy, and not "crunchy"? You won’t believe how well the Rab Kinetic Plus Waterproof Jacket works for keeping you dry when XC skiing in wet conditions. Need to freshen up your XC wardrobe? Work with a clothing expert to find just the right outfit for you. Plus, the XC demo center is open – try a new skate ski package today, like the Salomon RS8 Skate Ski Package for 33% OFF!

Have fun out there!
