The Michigan Cup
Cross Country Ski Racing Series

More than 20 Michigan Cup races are scheduled from October through March throughout Michigan at many different XC ski resorts and trails. Skiers can race a variety of distances and races of varying difficulty, with a mix of interval and mass starts. All ages and abilities are welcome.

The Michigan Cup is for all levels of cross country skiers

A little nervous?

You don't have to be an expert skier to race the Michigan Cup. We even have a "Fun Series" of easier, shorter races.
