Due to the weather-related changes at the 2017 Birkie, we have made changes to the BNS Race Wax Service. Please see this blog post for more information. Call us at 720.227.9400 to sign up for the service.

2017 BNS American Birkebeiner Race Wax Service

BNS is excited to announce improvements to its American Birkebeiner Race Wax Service for 2017. We have re-structured our race wax service to make it more convenient, improve efficiency of drop-off and pick-up, and provide a Saturday morning race ski pickup at the start line.  We also have a few changes to our drop-off schedule and early-bird price incentives; see below for details.  We will have a presence at the Birkie Expo for 2017 as well as at our partner shop for SkiGo and Holmenkol, Riverbrook Bike & Ski. 

Treat yourself to a full race wax application by our pro service team so you can relax and focus on your race, or just drop by our BNS Midwest location, our booth at the Hayward Birkie Expo, or Riverbrook Bike & Ski to find out what wax is running fastest and stock up on whatever wax, tools and gloves you need. We will be testing all brands of waxes to find the fastest solution.  BNS will post wax updates to Facebook (bouldernordic),, and at our BNS Midwest location.

Changes to our Birkie ski service for 2017

Our expert staff will be on-hand at our BNS Midwest location and at our Ski*Go booth at the Hayward expo to answer questions before the event. We will not be set-up at River Brook Bike and Ski this year for Race Wax Service.  Skis can be dropped off until Thursday by 8PM at BNS Midwest in Bloomington or at our Ski*Go Expo booth. We encourage racers to drop skis by Wednesday in Bloomington and will provide incentives to those that do – see below for details.  Classic skis will be ready for pickup Friday afternoon at BNS Midwest and Friday evening at the Hayward expo.  Skate skis will be ready for pickup at the start-line Saturday morning.


Our race service is $125 and includes base prep, LF & HF paraffins and pure fluoro topcoats.  For classic skis, we will iron in a binder layer in the kick zone you designate for a $25 fee, but we will not wax with the final kick wax layers. You will want to apply those race morning to achieve the best results.  We will test kick waxes, provide recommendations, and sell you kick wax if you need it, but you will have to apply it yourself race morning for the best results.

$115 if you sign-up before February 1st. Enter coupon code "Birkie" on checkout.

Receive a $20 BNS gift card if you drop skis off at our BNS Midwest location before 6PM Wednesday.

Ski Drop Off

Please get your skis to BNS Midwest as early as possible in order to allow us to do base prep and deliver your skis on time and without stress.  It is very helpful for us to get skis as early as possible, so please drop off skis at BNS Midwest in Bloomington, Minnesota as early as possible. BNS Midwest is located at 8929 Penn Ave S; Bloomington 55431.

*** Please note there will be no Friday drop-off this year, skis must be dropped off at the Birkebeiner Expo by Thursday 8pm or at our BNS Midwest Location by Thursday 8pm to be waxed for the race.

***We encourage all racers to drop off skis at our BNS Midwest location by Wednesday.  You will receive a $20 BNS gift card if skis are dropped off by 6pm Wednesday.

Please deliver skis to us clean and scraped with ski ties on.  Print out your receipt and bring a copy with you to drop-off.  Make sure skis are labeled with name, cell phone number, and the event/distance you are doing along with wave number.
