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!
