It looks great but I miss the old style. The old style felt more like a ski lodge.

I LOVE it! Looks so much better! I never was a huge fan of the red wood. Always looked beat down to me🤷.

Great job! Love it!

Looks awesome.

Nice. I'm excited to see it in person.

Oh....I miss the red!

This was the first place I went snowboarding in 8th grade. Nearly ran into the lodge because I was still learning how to stop!

It looked much better with the wood style. That style fit in with the ski area. I don't think this fits at all. Wayyyyyyy to modern yo

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.

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!

It looks great but I miss the old style. The old style felt more like a ski lodge.

I LOVE it! Looks so much better! I never was a huge fan of the red wood. Always looked beat down to me🤷.

Great job! Love it!

Looks awesome.

Looks great!

Nice. I'm excited to see it in person.

Oh....I miss the red!

This was the first place I went snowboarding in 8th grade. Nearly ran into the lodge because I was still learning how to stop!

It looked much better with the wood style. That style fit in with the ski area. I don't think this fits at all. Wayyyyyyy to modern yo

It looks so modern now 😔 I miss the red wood.

Looks very nice

Miss the red color too

Looks like storage unit

A huge THANK YOU to our friends at Chemical Bank! Donating their holiday day off to put in new trails at Hanson Hills. Today they designed and cleared a trail on the north side of the pond that will now be known as "HALMANAC TRAIL" ...

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. If you’d like to read Bob’s story that was featured in the ceremony program, click here:

Let’s Celebrate!

Come say hello to Bob and the crew at the Labor Day Weekend Sale, Friday, September 2nd through Monday, September 5th! Sale hours are Friday and Saturday 9:00am to 6:00pm, Sunday 10:00am to 5:00pm, and Monday 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Also, stay tuned for a special reception to be planned for later in the season, so that we can celebrate when there’s snow on the ground.

Thanks to everyone for your support, and here’s to a great upcoming ski season!
