Awesome!!!

Yayyy!

Right back in form!

This reminds me of a story that happened there some 38 years ago. We were skiing with cousins there and on the one hill; my cousin wiped out at the bottom. Out of nowhere, from the woods; a dog ran up to him; pulled his hat off his head and ran away. Never to be seen again. The dog and his hat. lol

So jeaous!!!!

Cross Country Ski Headquarters – Roscommon

Cross Country Ski HeadquartersLocated in Higgins Lake, Michigan. Cross Country Ski Headquarters is a Pure Michigan premier destination for cross country skiing in Michigan and the Midwest. It is the best source for cross country skis, equipment, clothing, cross country ski packages, and expertise. Located at 9435 N. Cut Rd., Roscommon, MI 48653.

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!

Your Best Source for Everything Cross Country

Cross Country Skiing is all we do. When the snow melts for good, we shut our doors and start planning for next winter. We eat, sleep, and breathe cross country skiing all spring, summer, fall, and winter, which is why we are truly the cross country skiing experts.

Skiers across the country and around the world have come to rely on our unbeatable customer service, excellent prices, and extensive selection from top brands including Salomon, Fischer, Rossignol, Atomic, Madshus and Alpina. We also offer a wide variety of carefully selected apparel, including items from North Face, Patagonia, Under Armour, Columbia, Sporthill, Brooks, Salomon, Swix, and more.

Whether you’re an elite racer, a novice, or somewhere in between, the expert crew at Cross Country Ski Headquarters will help you fulfill your XC skiing needs at the lowest price possible.

Awesome!!!

Yayyy!

Right back in form!

This reminds me of a story that happened there some 38 years ago. We were skiing with cousins there and on the one hill; my cousin wiped out at the bottom. Out of nowhere, from the woods; a dog ran up to him; pulled his hat off his head and ran away. Never to be seen again. The dog and his hat. lol

So jeaous!!!!

What’s New This Year for the Cross Country Ski Trails at Hanson Hills

Hanson Hills Cross Country SkiingWe are pleased to announce a few exciting changes to our Nordic Operations for the 2017-18 Season.

1.CLASSIC ONLY- We have added 5 kilometers to our Wilderness Trail making it a looped classic only adventure trail. With fun section names including Wanderlust, PB&J, Sunset Ridge and the soon to be famous Buck Snort!

2. SHORTCUT – We have opened a Service trail that could serve as a shortcut between the Red and the Green Trail to help our groomer/ski patrollers easily navigate trails without having to ride the whole system.

3. IN MEMORY OF –There will be a newer waxing bench added to our main lodge, the bench was donated from Michael Seaman’s Trust, this was his personal bench, that he prepped many ski’s on! We are honored to have this in memory of Mike and we hope you remember his athletic spirit as you prep your skis! We will also have envelopes for Mike’s Scholarship fund available in the lodge for all those who wish to donate!

4. GROOMER LOVE- We are adding an additional Bear Cat Groomer Special to our grooming fleet!

5. GOING THE DISTANCE-
You will notice on our redesigned maps, point to point distances between colors!! Look for a new Trail Head (Coming Soon) signboard as well!
