“Best XC shop in the state.”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Very experienced and knowledgeable staff. Owners have been doing this longer than Bob wants me to mention. Many nice groomed trails for a small donation. Lessons and honest equipment discussions. Rentals too!

Thank you! After over 40 years in this business, we know that an honest approach to equipment outfitting is the only way to go. We still groom our trails every day that there's snow! Come see us again soon.

“Great Operation, Nice X-Country Skiing”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Hard to beat a lodge with a nice fire and x-country skiing through the woods. The trails could be more challenging but nice ambience for a weekend and very well maintained.

Paella back in the lodge cooked over the fire was fantastic! Shop has excellent prices for skis and accessories.

Thank you so much for the review! We do indeed have trails that lend themselves to beginner and intermediate skiers, and we work very hard to maintain them, so thank you! We still do our famous Paella over open flame on the sun deck a few times per season, so we hope to see you at one of them soon!

“Best of the best”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is just an excellent establishment. My wife and I have tried several cross country trails in Michigan and by far this is our favorite. There are flat trails for beginners and hilly trails for those wishing a little more challenge. The shops are full of gear at good prices and the staff are very knowledgeable of the sport. The trails loop through undeveloped wooded property of pines and hardwoods. This is a great ski vacation destination.
