Winter is the season of FUN at Cross Country Ski Headquarters!
At Cross Country Ski Headquarters, getting people on the snow and having fun is our number one priority. This winter, we’re adding some new and bringing back some favorite special events to amplify the fun. Plus, visitors will also have the chance to learn and improve their XC ski technique at various learn-to-ski clinics, with options for everyone from raw beginners to experts. Finally, ongoing artisan food specials at the Stone Turtle Cafe are available virtually every weekend, as is live music on select weekends. Of course, our nationally-recognized cross country ski trails and specialty retail shop and service center are open seven days a week.
Join us for a taste of the Alps at our signature event, Bavarian Ski Festival, on Saturday, January 21st. Stein-holding contests, Team Ski Time Trials, a costume contest, plus German sausages and beer served by German Dave are not to be missed!
