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!

Join us Saturday for too much fun!!

Stretch & Slide: Yoga Ski Retreat!Jan 20, 10:00amCross Country Ski HeadquartersStretch and Slide combines two fabulous activities: yoga and cross country skiing!

Stretch & Slide begins with a yoga class at 10:00am (meets at the Gerrish Township Municipal Building, 1 mile south of XC Ski HQ), and continues with an awesome day on the snow! After yoga, head to XC Ski HQ to get your ski or snowshoe rental and facilities pass, and join in a private group lesson with a PISA certified ski instructor (at approx 11:45am). After the lesson, refuel with a delicious chili lunch (classic or vegetarian) at the Stone Turtle Day Lodge Café at Cross Country Ski Headquarters. Spend the rest of the day enjoying the serenity of the beautiful Michigan winter forests on the pristinely groomed Headquarters ski trails, or relaxing with a mug of hot cocoa by the Stone Turtle Day Lodge fireplace!

All are invited to participate, including novices to yoga, skiing or both. Over a $65 value for $45 ($35 if you have your own equipment). There will be an opportunity to change from yoga clothes into ski clothes before the ski lesson, and XC Ski Headquarters has a great selection of ski clothing if you need to get outfitted before the lesson! To pre-register (recommended but not required), email info@crosscountryski.com or call 800-832-2663.
