Cross Country Ski Headquarters – Ribs and Blues – March 3, 2018

A favorite tradition at Cross Country Ski Headquarters, Ribs & Blues celebrates live music from the West Side Blues Band, made up of local artists Don Mick and Dan McCullough.

Enjoy what is surely some of the best barbeque in all the land: German Dave’s famous slow cooked barbequed ribs, cooked over our outdoor fire pit by German Dave himself!

Kick back to the tunes of some truly talented blues musicians in a festive, outdoor atmosphere, while feasting on succulent ribs, scalloped potatoes, and cole slaw.

Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for kids 8 and younger.

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❤❤❤

Classic George Frye
