Cross Country Ski Headquarters

"Virtual" Fundraiser Sale of Michael Seaman's ski equipment. All proceeds go to the Michael Seamen Memorial Scholarship Fund. Check out the link to the list of gear, and call us at 800-832-2663 to purchase or for more info. Let's honor this unforgettable guy by putting his skis to good use, and donating to this awesome cause!

Ski Sale Fundraiser - Michael Seamen Memorial Scholarship FundJul 14, 2:00pmCross Country Ski HeadquartersWith the sudden and unexpected passing of Mike Seaman on June 27th, the Michigan cross country skiing community lost a dear friend who will be greatly missed. For anyone who knew Mike, they know that he was an avid sportsman, gear-head, and educator. He took a lot of pride in his 27 years teaching at Montcalm Community College, a rural CC in the central Michigan area. Mike’s father, Jim, is in the process of creating the “Michael Seaman Memorial Scholarship Fund” to help provide assistance to students in financial need. To help fund the Scholarship, nearly all of Mike’s sports gear is being offered for purchase/donation. Mike’s older and more used equipment is being donated directly to youth programs.

Having ski raced for years, Mike left behind several high-end sets of skis, boots, bindings and poles. We are hopeful that many skiers will be able to put this equipment to use via a purchase/donation to the Scholarship Fund. For those who remember Mike fondly, you will also be able to ‘have a little piece of Mike' in your ski quiver.

This is a great opportunity to make a difference in honor of someone who meant a lot to the cross country skiing community.

Please click the "Find Tickets" link to view the gear.

***NOTE: We are only open "by appointment" throughout the summer, and are not keeping regular store hours. If you are interested in a purchasing some of Mike's equipment, or if you have any questions, please call 1.800.832.2663 or email us at infocrosscountryski.com.***

Any purchased equipment can be held at XC Ski HQ for pickup, or be shipped to you for a nominal fee. All the gear listed is in Good to Excellent Condition (Mike treated his gear with care!). All purchases/donations will be made to “Friends of Mike Seaman” until the Scholarship Fund is legally created in the very near future.

For anyone simply wishing to make a donation, please make checks payable to “Friends of Mike Seaman” and mail to: Isabella Community Credit Union, 2400 S. Isabella Rd, Mt Pleasant, MI 48858.
