Join us in a point-to-point ski tour of the beloved local trail, the Mason Tract. This groomed (classic only) nine mile, intermediate level trail winds along an undeveloped stretch of the AuSable River. The scenery is pristine and beautiful, and skiing through it is a quintessential Northern Michigan winter experience.
We will meet at XC Ski HQ at 8:30am for check-in, then depart as a group to spot cars, and continue to the Mason Tract Trailhead to begin the adventure! Skiers can rest and refuel halfway through where a bonfire await. When finished, head back to XC Ski HQ for a celebratory beer or glass of wine. Cost is $45 and include car-spot service, bonfire and lunch along the trail, post-ski beverage of your choice, plus comemorative shirt.
*Participants must be able to complete this 9 mile trail before 5:00pm. Ski Rentals are not included. Lodging and dinner specials are available for participants at Gates Lodge and AuSable Riverview Resort, both located on the main branch of the Ausable River!
