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.

Fantastic!

Couldn’t make it today (but your deck and food is always the bomb on sunny days!). Crust skiing was fabulous here in Traverse City, this morning. Get out and ski nordic fans, it’s incredible.

What a great bunch of people! You all do such a wonderful job of making our area a premier X-Country Ski destination.

You don't look so "bottomless" in this photo Lj Kanaby! Looks to be a fabulous spring day of skiing! Who doesn't love some corn kernel snow to ski In! Be careful in that thick stuff...tore my ACL in that kind of snow!

NICE!!!

Congrats!

“If you choose not to find joy in the snow, you will have less joy in your life but still the same amount of snow.” Trails are awesome. Enjoy! #xcskiinglife #skiwhenyoucan ... See MoreSee Less
