Michigan Cup Champions XC Ski HQ

Cross Country Ski Report – Monday, March 8th

What a fabulous Michigan Cup Relays we had yesterday! Twenty-nine, 3-person relay teams competed on an outstanding, 6km course and enjoyed lunch, beer and awards afterwards under sunny skies. It was an awesome day of skiing and camaraderie, and the icing on the cake was that Team XC Ski HQ defended the Michigan Cup title and were declared champions of the 2020-21 race season. Hats off to all the racers!

The trails are in excellent spring skiing shape after a tremendous snow-moving and grooming effort by Butch, Mike and Tony. There are some thin/icy spots and debris on some of the open trails, but each marginal spot is easy to ski through or over. Trails were groomed yesterday late afternoon, and should be in great shape today.

The Stone Turtle Cafe is open for outdoor dining, as well as 50% capacity indoor dining. Have fun out there and enjoy it while it lasts!

All the best,
