Cross Country Ski Headquarters – Ski the Beer Trail with Paddle Hard Brewery! & Michigan Search and Rescue! – March 4, 2017
Our favorite local brewery, Paddle Hard Brewing, will bring their hops to the snow at Trapper’s Cabin, where skiers and snow-shoers can try some of Michigan’s most excellent craft beer and enjoy a gourmet barbecue with locally made beer brats. The Beer Trail Pass includes a full day facilities pass, barbecue lunch at Trapper’s Cabin, and four beer tokens for $35. Additional beer tokens may be purchased separately. Ski and snowshoe rentals are available for a nominal fee on a first come, first served basis, and free mini ski lessons are available upon request.
Plus, stick around to meet our special event guests, Michigan Search and Rescue team! Michigan Search and Rescue provides services for missing persons response, specifically canine search teams, at no cost. The team is composed of 50 volunteers and 30 dogs, and all the dogs have canine good citizen certification so are people and kid friendly. There will also be dog demos, where the dogs will find missing people (someone hiding in the woods – Airscent Wilderness Dog), and/or find hidden bones (HRD Dog). These demos will take place at 1:00pm and 3:00pm on the sun deck/practice area.
*We have full confidence that the Liquor Control Commission will grant us a permit to host this event; however, on the minuscule chance that the permit is denied, we will still have a barbecue lunch and live music at Trapper’s Cabin, and our standard facilities pass and lunch rates will apply. We will have final approval from the LCC by the end of the day on Friday, March 3rd, and will notify participants immediately if the event is to be changed from the above description. Thanks and see you there!
