Cross Country Ski Headquarters – Ski the Beer Trail with Michigan Search & Rescue! – February 2, 2019

Cross Country Ski Headquarters - Ski the Beer Trail
Join us for a day of delicious craft beer on the ski trails! A favorite local brewery will bring their hops to the snow at Trapper’s Cabin, where skiers and snow-shoers can taste some of Michigan’s most excellent craft beer and wine, and also enjoy live music from the Whittington Boys Band! The Beer Trail Pass costs $25 and includes 4 beer tokens. Additional beer tokens may be purchased separately. A Facilities Pass is complimentary for all Beer Trail Pass holders, and a gourmet barbecue lunch will be available for purchase at Trapper’s Cabin. Ski and snowshoe rentals are available on a first come, first served basis, and free mini ski lessons are available upon request.

Plus, stick around to meet the Michigan Search and Rescue team! Michigan Search and Rescue provides services for missing persons response, specifically canine search teams, at no cost. The team is composed of 50 volunteers and 30 dogs, and all the dogs have canine good citizen certification, so are people- and kid-friendly. There will also be dog demos, where the dogs will find missing people (someone hiding in the woods – Airscent Wilderness Dog), and/or find hidden bones (HRD Dog). These demos will take place at 12:00pm, 1:30pm, and 3:00pm on the sun deck/practice area.

February 2nd, 2019 – Saturday, 11:00am – 4:00pm

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
