Cross Country Ski Headquarters to host Yoga for Skiers, Ski Walking Clinic, and Giant Closeout Sale over Labor Day Weekend
Summer going by too fast for you? Wondering how fall weather could possibly be right around the corner? Well, we’ve got news. The weather is always perfect… as long as you’re wearing the right clothes. Stay outside all fall and winter by stocking up on your favorite cool-weather brands at our annual Labor Day Weekend Super Sale! Also, get your stretch on at our Yoga for Skiers demo, and learn the art of Nordic Ski Walking from the godfather of ski walking himself, Pete Edwards!
Join us for three days of ridiculously good deals on XC skis from Fischer, Salomon, Atomic, Rossignol, Alpina, and Madshus, plus boots from Fischer, Salomon, Rossignol, Atomic and Alpina. Our massive selection of poles from Yoko, Leki, Swix, One Way, and Exel is on sale too. How ridiculously good are these deals, you ask? We’re talking 33% – 50% off last year’s skis, boots and poles. Save $200 on 2011-12 Fischer RCS Carbon Skate Skis (list $599, sale price $399). If you’re not even a little bit stoked about winter by now, there is something seriously wrong with you.
We have plenty of this year’s inventory, so if you’re looking for the latest and greatest from top XC ski manufacturers, we have it at prices that will make you grin like Gabby Douglas.
And don’t even get us started on clothing. The Stone Turtle Day Lodge is full of last year’s Columbia winter jackets, marked down to 50% off! Knit sweaters from Woolrich, Alps, and Columbia are also 50% off. Looking for something sporty? Check out our huge selection of lightweight jackets, wicking tops, base layers, and pants from Brooks, Swix, Sporthill, Salomon, Rossignol, Under Armour, Louis Garneau, Yoko, Columbia, and more. Get 40% off last year’s models!
This is also you’re chance to be the first to own this year’s hottest styles from The North Face, Columbia, Woolrich, and new this season… Patagonia! Stock up on favorites from this supercool brand, including Capaline base layer, down sweaters, R2 jackets and more. No other store is stocked this fully for winter yet, so come on over and get that worm, you early bird.
In case you’re still reading this and haven’t started planning your trip over here already, here are two more reasons for you to come see us this Labor Day weekend. Certified Yoga Instructor and 2012 Michigan Cup gold medalist for the 20-29 age division, Mariah Frye, will lead a Yoga for Skiers demonstration Saturday at 4pm on the practice field. All levels welcome!
On Sunday, Northern Michigan ski walking legend and all around great dude, Pete Edwards, is going to show you how to burn 40% more calories while walking. That’s right. Come to our free Nordic Ski Walking clinic on Sunday from 2pm – 5pm, and get personalized instruction on what is becoming a very popular sport in the US. He’ll also have 200 pairs of Ski Walking poles for the clinic, so no need to pre-register.
As you can see, it’s shaping up to be a pretty sweet Labor Day Weekend here at XC Ski HQ. Mark your calendars and don’t miss out on the fun!
All the best,
Lynne, Bob, Fran, Mariah, Stu, and the rest of the XC Ski HQ crew
