Cross Country Ski Headquarters – Bob Frye Inducted to Michigan Ski Hall of Fame!

Bob FryeWe are honored to announce that Bob Frye, after 42 years in the cross country skiing industry, has been inducted to the Michigan Ski Hall of Fame!

The induction took place on Monday, August 22nd, at the Michigan Snowsports Industries Association annual meeting and dinner. Bob, founder of Cross Country Ski Headquarters, was honored for his “major contributions in areas of organization, promotion, or development of the skiing industry in Michigan.”

During his acceptance speech, Bob thanked all the people who have believed in the mission of Cross Country Ski Headquarters: help people have fun on the snow. He made a special thanks to his wife, Lynne, who joined him early on in the business, and without whom XC Ski HQ would not be what it is today. The ceremony was attended by many members of the Michigan and Midwest ski industry, as well as Lynne, his children, and other family members.

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

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. ...

Hard to believe it is still there after all the rain yesterday😊😊

My guess is May 20th
