XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 01/24


Join us tomorrow for the Team Ski Time Trial from 2:00-4:00pm! Grab your team of three and compete for awesome prizes! Free entry, and you can enter as many times as you want with as many teams as you want. All part of the Bavarian Ski Festival at XC Ski HQ!

We received additional snow throughout the day yesterday and last night, and after Groomer Butch set tracks yesterday, conditions were absolutely excellent. Conditions are fantastic again today, and Groomer Mike is snowcombing the skating lanes and resetting tracks where needed on all trails across the street this morning. There is 6 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!

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!

See you at HQ!

-Mariah, Stu, Bob, Lynne, Erin, Matt, Missy, Gill, Krista, Ethan, Andrew, Will, Katrina, Brenna, Mike, Butch, Tony, Donnie and the crew
