Cross Country Ski Headquarters

You thought we forgot about the Mount Snow Challenge, didn’t you??! Truthfully, we did NOT forget to note the melt date (May 24th), but because we do such a thorough digital detox in the spring, we are just now getting around to posting the contest results (we take the words “off-season” pretty seriously).
Anyway, you’re not going to believe this, but out of nearly 200 guesses, NO ONE guessed the correct date!! How is this possible?? We are in shock. If you did in fact guess May 24th and we somehow missed it, comment here and we will get you your prize. For all the rest of you, the trails are beautiful and open for hiking, biking, dog walking, and child walking all summer long. Stop in and shop, too, just call ahead to make sure we’re there. Be well and see you at the Labor Day Weekend Sale! ✌️ @ Cross Country Ski Headquarters

I was off by 3 weeks 😂 although the husky enjoyed every second of a late spring snow roll

Are the trails open regardless if you’re there or certain hours

What was the closest guess?

Mount Snow is nearly finished! This photo was taken May 19th. Stay tuned for the official melt date, and subsequent contest winners, undoubtedly coming very soon. ...

Happy Mother’s Day from the crew at #xcskihq! Mother Nature gifted us with a thick blanket of snow this morning... a surprising but beautiful sight (also the perfect consistency for making a snowman!). Cheers to all you moms out there - you truly make the world go round, and you are so, so loved!! @ Cross Country Ski Headquarters ...

Forty some years ago an old timer in the UP swore he’d once skied on the 4th of July. Who can say it can’t happen again!

Unbelievable! Looks awesome! 😍

Do you need me back at work?? 😂

This crew enjoyed some great spring skiing on the #xcskibq trails yesterday! Take a break from the news and the noise and head to the woods for a refreshing dose of normalcy. Rock skis recommended, and we have some to borrow if you need. Open every day until March 31st. ...
