Join our Race Team for more fun this winter!

The Cross Country Ski Headquarters Nordic Race Team WINS 2021 Michigan Cup and Brumbaugh Cup!!


The Cross Country Ski Headquarters Team is not only a force to be reckoned with in the Michigan Cup Race Series, it is also composed of the most fun-loving, friendly and passionate XC skiers you could imagine. Our team is made up of men and women of all ages, from junior skiers to racers who are still going strong into their 80’s. With over 150 team members from not just Michigan, but Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania, our team is just as diverse as it is welcoming. We greet new racers with open arms, and are a tight-knit, supportive group. There are no pre-qualifiers for joining Team XC Ski HQ, though we tend to attract fun people who love to ski, compete, and who enjoy a team environment.

Beginning in December, Michigan Cup races take place every weekend throughout the state, offering a variety of classic and freestyle races of various distances. The race atmosphere is fun and friendly, and with racers ranging from casual to competitive, skiers of ALL levels are welcome. We are not only the 2020 Michigan Cup Champions, but we have won the Michigan Cup 8 out of the past 11 years, and the Brumbaugh Cup in 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2020.  Every team member who participates in even one race contributes to our total points tally, so the more skiers, the better! We are also big on “team bonding”, so expect an invite to team dinners, wax clinics, ski clinics, and off-season training days.
