City of Lakes Loppet Race Wax Service
With our new BNS location in Bloomington, MN, we are excited to once again be at the City of Lakes Loppet with a full service team providing wax sales and brand-neutral race waxing service. 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 the Expo to find out what wax is running fastest and stock up on whatever wax you need. We will be testing all brands of waxes to find the fastest solution. BNS will post wax updates to Facebook (bouldernordic) and bouldernordic.com as well as at the BNS Mobile and the Expo.
Our race service is $85 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, 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.
Ski Drop Off
Please get your skis to BNS as early as possible in order to allow us to do base prep and deliver your skis on time and without stress. Please deliver skis to us cleaned of both glide and kick wax. It is important that you use a solvent in the kick zone and it is our recommendation to use glide zone cleaner on the glide zones. 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 you are doing. Because of the multiple events over the weekend it especially important to indicate the event that you will be participating in when you label your skis.
Ski Drop Off Schedule:
Drop off skis at BNS Midwest, 8929 Penn Ave S, Bloomington, MN 55431 during our normal business hours.
Note: It is possible that skis that are dropped off on Wednesday and Thursday for the classic race can be ready for pickup on Friday. Skis for Sunday can be ready for pickup on Saturday afternoon if dropped off on Friday or before. Call for details.
Ski Pick Up
Skis will be available for pickup at BNS the night before your race.
NOTE: THIS IS NON-REFUNDABLE. BNS will refund if the race is cancelled before the wax service is started, or BNS has to cancel for any reason, but otherwise this is non-refundable. If the race wax service is performed and the race is cancelled after the service has been provided, no refunds will be given.
