Cross Country Ski Headquarters has teamed up with Michigan’s McDonalds restaurants to offer an exciting and very affordable introduction to the sport of Cross Country Skiing in Michigan. The program is designed to introduce a healthy outdoor winter activity to anyone with an interest in outdoor winter recreation.
The program includes a group lesson, ski equipment rental, and XC SKI HQ facilities pass for the day. The price for this Discover Michigan Skiing program is $20 for adults and children 6 years and older. The lesson covers basic maneuvering on skis, including classic technique, turning, controlling speed going downhill, and getting up from a fall. At the end of the program, participants receive a $20-off coupon valid at participating Michigan Ski Industries Association ski shops.
The Discover Michigan group lesson starts at 12:00pm on Saturdays throughout the month of January, but if you have a group of 4 or more, you may schedule a “private” group lesson most any day or time. In either case, sign in at the rental desk at least 15 minutes prior to the lesson time to get fitted for ski equipment. Please pre-register by calling 800.832.2663.
