Hundreds of junior skiers have participated in the Cross Country Ski Headquarters' Annual Muffin Races for Kids. And of course Big Bob (Cross Country Ski HQ’s owner Bob Frye) is a champion promoter of cross country skiing, the driving force behind the Great Lakes Nordic Ski Council and when it comes to kids, he has the biggest heart of ALL. Big Bob and his staff will host some quality events and a fantastic pig roast this Sunday.
