Cross Country Ski Headquarters – 27th Annual Junior Muffin Sprint Relay Race – March 3 , 2019


Due to the Blizzard Warning that went into effect this morning, we are postponing the Muffin Race to next Sunday, March 3rd. We believe it is in the best interest of all Muffin participants not to travel today, and are confident that conditions next Sunday will be much more agreeable for travel and racing. We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope to see you at HQ on March 3rd. Please call 800-832-2663 with any questions, and thank you for understanding.

<>

Join us for the longest standing juniors race in Michigan! The Muffin Race celebrates the fun of youth skiing with a Junior Girls & Boys 6km Team Sprint Relay race. Inspired by the Gold Medal victory by Jessie Diggins and Kikkan Randall in the 2018 Olympics, this freestyle relay race will feature two skiers per relay team. Each skier will ski a total of 3 laps around a 2km course, handing off to their teammate between each lap, totaling 6 laps per team. Registration begins at 9am on Sunday, and we will shoot for a 10:30am start. This is a Michigan Cup Junior Race. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in the girls division, boys division, and coed division, and awards will also be given for best costumes! After the Sprint Relay race, we will have the Mini Muffin Races starting at approximately 11:30am.

Mini Muffin Races:

We will hold three Mini Muffin freestyle races: Ages 6 years and under, 7 to 9 and 10 to 12. All racers 12 and under will be awarded a medal!

There is a $10 entry fee for Muffin Racers 13 and older, and it includes a Pig Roast Lunch. There is no entry fee for the Mini Muffin Racers.

The Pig Roast is $5 for anyone else who might be hungry too. All racers and family members who partake in the Pig Roast will also receive a complimentary 1-day XC SKI HQ facilities pass.

February 24th, 2019 – Sunday – Postponed to March 3, 2019

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.

Love that photo and those times too! This was March of 1992. Jimmy was turning 1 year old! Since he could walk, we knew he could ski! He had many wonderful sibling instructors to learn from... 😉

Oh my Lynn looks just like Mariah now!

That is the cutest!

Jimmy's face. Priceless.

omg....what a cute photo of the family.

Bob, look at all that dark hair!! 😍

Precious!

You look like Mariah in that picture, Lynne!

1993 was the year of my first visit to XCSKIHQ!

LOVE!

2016- sporting the fox head hat:

Priceless ❤❤❤ Beautiful family❤❤❤

Great photo!!

Conditions are soft but skiable! Grab your Hawaiian shirt and join us tomorrow (Saturday) for Spring Ski Fest and a Hawaiian BBQ!! 🥳 ...

Love that photo and those times too! This was March of 1992. Jimmy was turning 1 year old! Since he could walk, we knew he could ski! He had many wonderful sibling instructors to learn from... 😉

Oh my Lynn looks just like Mariah now!

That is the cutest!

Jimmy's face. Priceless.

omg....what a cute photo of the family.

Bob, look at all that dark hair!! 😍

Precious!

You look like Mariah in that picture, Lynne!

1993 was the year of my first visit to XCSKIHQ!

LOVE!

2016- sporting the fox head hat:

Priceless ❤❤❤ Beautiful family❤❤❤

Great photo!!

Classic George Frye
