Learn to Ski - Discover Michigan Skiing


During January, ski areas across the state teamed up with Michigan McDonald’s restaurants to offer an affordable introduction to the sport of cross country skiing. The cost of $20 includes ski rental, beginner lesson, and a cross country ski trail pass.

The Cross Country Ski Headquarters in Roscommon is one of the venues. Says the Headquarter's Mariah Frye Colie,
