Join XC Ski Headquarters for a day of delicious craft beer on the ski trails! A favorite local brewery will bring their hops to the snow at Trapper’s Cabin, where skiers and snow-shoers can taste some of Michigan’s most excellent craft beer and wine, and also enjoy live music from the Whittington Boys Band! The Beer Trail Pass costs $25 and includes 4 beer tokens. Additional beer tokens may be purchased separately. A Facilities Pass is complimentary for all Beer Trail Pass holders, and a gourmet barbecue lunch will be available for purchase at Trapper’s Cabin. Ski and snowshoe rentals are available on a first come, first served basis, and free mini ski lessons are available upon request.
Plus, stick around to meet the Michigan Search and Rescue team! Michigan Search and Rescue provides services for missing persons response, specifically canine search teams, at no cost. The team is composed of 50 volunteers and 30 dogs, and all the dogs have canine good citizen certification, so are people- and kid-friendly. There will also be dog demos, where the dogs will find missing people (someone hiding in the woods – Airscent Wilderness Dog), and/or find hidden bones (HRD Dog). These demos will take place at 12:00pm, 1:30pm, and 3:00pm on the sun deck/practice area.
