Today is Ribs and Blues Sunday, featuring live music of the Higgins Lake Blues Duo and our famous Sweet Baby Ray’s slow cooked barbequed ribs. Kick back to the tunes of these talented blues musicians while feasting on succulent ribs, scalloped potatoes, and cole slaw. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for kids 8 and younger. We will start serving the Ribs about 1:30 and the band will start about 2.

The usual menu will also be available starting at 11AM.

We are a Demo and Race Center for Fischer, Salomon and Atomic skis and boots. We are also a Rossignol and Alpina Demo/Touring center. We strive to maintain a good inventory so even in March we have a great selection of skis, boots, poles and winter outdoor aerobic clothing all part of the “Let it Snow, Price Match Guarantee Plus Better Service Sale”

This looks to be a Pure Michigan day for X-C Skiing and eating!
