Wat je gaat doen

Over the course of two hours, we will explore and enjoy a Northern Michigan's cross-country skiing treasure in the vicinity of Petoskey and Harbor Springs. We will meet up, check equipment, go over what to expect, and review the basics of XC skiing as necessary. We will then set out on an unforgettable adventure through scenic Northern Michigan hardwood forests, traversing a variety of glacial landforms, dipping in and out of gullies, and gliding through glades. During our adventure, we will break to rest, rehydrate, eat, and talk about the natural world surrounding us. Optionally, depending on participants' experience and interest, we can mix it up and go off-trail for a unique back-country skiing experience. Upon completing our journey, I can provide advice regarding other locations for pursuing similar adventures, as well as local options for dining, drinking, etc.

Keep in mind that XC skiing in Northern Michigan may be more difficult and strenuous than you expect due to the topography. Our trek will include some big hill climbs, so being physically fit is very important. My goal is that you safely enjoy this special experience and expand your XC skiing horizons!

I am passionate about cross-country skiing. I have been on skis since childhood, spent the last 15 years exploring the immense and wonderful variety of XC skiing opportunities in Northern Michigan, and for a time commuted 6 miles/day on XC skis to work! For years I have been a guide to family and friends, teaching them the basics of XC skiing and sharing my favorite Northern Michigan backwoods treasures. Additionally, I share my knowledge of the natural world through which we ski, acquired from graduate school in natural resources and decades of work in aquatic and terrestrial ecology.

Always done downhill skiing and had a desire to try out Crosscountry Skiing (XC) but never found the time or place to do it. Kevin's adventure was exactly the type of opportunity to try it, even though we both had never done any XC Skiing we felt that we could get a great introduction to this amazing pastime. We met with Kevin at The Outfitters to get our gear, even though they opened later in the day, Kevin was very flexible with adjusting to our schedule. If you want to save time and start early, it's probably better to have your gear beforehand. Cost of the rental wasn't included in the experience but wasn't much. We headed out to a good starting point and Kevin took us through a scenic trip just as described. Kevin was very flexible in adjusting the route/pace to our fitness level. In our case, we ended up doing close to 5.5 miles and made it all the way to the top of Boyne Highlands because we pushed it to our limit. Doing XC in the Michigan forest is a pretty surreal experience, even while in a group it does feel like you are alone with nature, once you get in a rhythm it feels very meditative to be going through the still woods in the winter snow. I kinda wish we could've gone even farther but that's just me. Definitely recommend it as a first time XC Skier! If you're more experienced, Kevin is a great host that can talk plenty about the Michigan nature and wildlife, take you to other routes and locations to enjoy, and give you lots of local tips.
