XC Ski Headquarters Cross Country Ski Report – 03/18

Feeling cooped up? Get out and ski!

Bob and Lynne had a great ski yesterday on the Wild Turkey trail, even though they had to ski through some dirt sometimes. We consider these to be great spring conditions, understanding of course that when things warm up, some parts of the trail lose their snow.

The fresh snow we received this morning will help the trails and make it easier to slide over the bare spots! We spoke with others who have been skiing the trails the last couple days, too, and who have been having a lot of fun in the woods, skiing on rock skis, and breathing the fresh air. One skier had done the Manitou trail and said that despite bare spots, the majority of it is still great for spring skiing.

If you have skis that you don’t mind skiing across dirt with, come and have some fun on the HQ trails! If you would like to borrow some skis for this purpose, just let us know and we’ll loan you some.

The shop is open at least until March 31st. The Stone Turtle Cafe is closed, in accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order. We hope to see you soon!

I need to find the Mason Tract Pathway. I love cross country ski headquarters.

We love the Mason tract trail! It's 93° right now where I'm at and I can't wait till it snows again and we can get back to skiing!

Cross Country Ski Headquarters ... a true winter wonderland!

Might be a great mountain biking trail in the summer!

Did that pile of snow finish melting yet?

I can’t wait to purchase my first pair of skis in over 30 years!! I’m so excited

Just dreaming about it today! 🎿 ❄️ #lovemichigan

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

EVERY. DAY.

Yes! Can it wait!

YES

Now you can charge your EV or PHEV car at XCSKIHq with a 40 amp juice box

You thought we forgot about the Mount Snow Challenge, didn’t you??! Truthfully, we did NOT forget to note the melt date (May 24th), but because we do such a thorough digital detox in the spring, we are just now getting around to posting the contest results (we take the words “off-season” pretty seriously).
Anyway, you’re not going to believe this, but out of nearly 200 guesses, NO ONE guessed the correct date!! How is this possible?? We are in shock. If you did in fact guess May 24th and we somehow missed it, comment here and we will get you your prize. For all the rest of you, the trails are beautiful and open for hiking, biking, dog walking, and child walking all summer long. Stop in and shop, too, just call ahead to make sure we’re there. Be well and see you at the Labor Day Weekend Sale! ✌️ @ Cross Country Ski Headquarters

I was off by 3 weeks 😂 although the husky enjoyed every second of a late spring snow roll

What was the closest guess?

Are the trails open regardless if you’re there or certain hours
