Cross Country Ski Headquarters: XC Ski Outfitters, Ski Area, Rentals and Day Lodge

Our Story

In the winter of 1974, Bob Frye opened a small cross country ski rental operation out of the shed of a Higgins Lake snowmobile repair shop. Thirty-eight years and multiple expansions later, Bob and his wife Lynne are still committed to the same goal with which they started: make cross country skiing fun and affordable for everyone.

The Cross Country Ski Headquarters is in the heart of Michigan’s cross country skiing mecca, with beautiful trails not just onsite, but all around us. This location, combined with Bob and Lynne’s decades of XC-ski knowledge and experience, makes the XC Ski HQ your premier resource for top-of-the-line service, equipment, clothing, and facilities. The business has grown from its humble beginnings to a vast retail store, a sprawling, meticulously maintained trail network, a large rental and demo facility, and a full-service café and day lodge – all completely dedicated to cross country skiing and, more recently, snowshoeing. We encourage our skiers to “try before you buy” when it comes to skis, boots, poles, and snowshoes, and we promise to help our customers create the best cross country skiing experience possible.

Come see why people from across Michigan and the Midwest return year after year to experience winter in a truly unique and memorable way. Our friendly and experienced staff, broad selection of equipment and apparel, and accommodating facilities make Cross Country Ski Headquarters a perfect getaway that is not only fun, but affordable.

So what are you waiting for? Come Ski With Us!

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
