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.
You don't have to be an expert skier to race the Michigan Cup. We even have a "Fun Series" of easier, shorter races.
We have skiers from age 7 to over 80 years old. Age is not a barrier to having fun or challenging yourself.
We also have long hard hilly technical races for the experienced skier looking for a big challenge.
You don't have to be on a team to race in a Michigan Cup, but it's a lot more fun to be cheered on by your comrades! There are teams throughout the Michigan's Lower Peninsula. Race for yourself, race for your team. Find a team.
Long races, short races, hard races, easy races, classic races, skate races, flat races, hilly races, mass starts, intervals starts, team relays and time trials. We have them all! Find a race.
Learn from your teammates...and from other teams. We're actually a friendly bunch of people, happy to help you be a better skier.
