Image: 2007-2008 BNS Training Groups and Closeout Sale

The Fall Season of Team BNS Training Group starts August 21.  We're excited to add a women's program.  Get fit, learn technique and have fun!

We just received 6 pallets of gear from Swix, Salomon and Rossignol.  It is time to get rid of all of our closeouts!

See inside for details.  

We have finished the move to 1717 15th St in downtown Boulder.  This will be our permanent home winter and summer.  We are up and running in the new location and will spend July and August buffing everything out for this winter.  Check back for more info.  Are hours are posted at the top of this page, but we are there a lot, so call if you have questions or need to pick something up and we are probably there.   

The garage is funky, but it's working as our temporary home.  By popular demand, we're adding hours to the garage sale.  Wed, Fri 4-7PM and Saturday 1-6PM.

THE BIG NEWS IS we're putting the remaining hand-selected ski inventory on sale plus we're offering special deals on our Fischer test fleet of 8 matched pairs of RCS.  We have a very limited selection of Carbonlites, RCS, Atomic World Cup left.  See inside for details....


We moved out of BCS after a great winter.  Thanks To BCS and all of our great customers who made it possible.  We're testing next year's equipment and using the down time to focus on some exciting new ideas that will improve our world-class service and equipment offerings.

We are currently re-arranging our new temporary space and will announce limited spring hours soon.  If you need anything, give us a call and we can schedule a time to help you out with service or equipment.  We are at our new location a lot, so it is usually pretty easy to schedule an appointment.

Steamboat wax recommendations for the 90km Coureur du Bois:

Stay tuned for a lot of info from our experiences waxing at Junior Nationals, testing equipment at Skiing magazine's gear test and our own long-term tests.  Pictures, too!


We're up at Snow Mountain Ranch testing in a blizzard.  We've tested pretty much every possible wax and the results are inside....   Read More...

Some snow info and the weather prediction revised slightly colder.  Join us for our Stampede Party wax night tonight.  More inside.


Winter has returned.  It snowed 3-4 inches during the 2 hours of our training group at Eldora this morning.  ZR1 will be the grind this weekend for skaters, ZR1XL or LL26 Classic.

Wax tips inside.

Conditions look great for this weekend's Snow Mountain Stampede.  We also had a customer bring in a pair of custom LUST racing ski boots to check out.


Leadville wax advice inside.  This time with the correct date. 
Birkie shortened to 23km, but officially still happening: details
First hand reports say no way.


A busy Monday - lots to cover so let's go Marty Hall style:

  • Birkie commentary, grind and wax recommendations
  • An article about skiing on the moon
  • US skier wins European Continental Cup Race
  • World Championships start this week in Sapporo - race and broadcast schedules
  • Snow Mountain Stampede specials!

Skiing is good at North Boulder Park with the new snow.  No tracks, but skating trail is good.  Take advantage while we have it as it looks to be getting warm again soon.

Our big sale continues through Sunday.  Come in and check out the amazing deals on boots, skis, poles and wax.  Almost everything in the store is on sale!

Swix and Toko have released their wax report for the Steamboat Catamount Marathon.  It looks like overnight should get down to about 7F with race start at 18F, daytime highs around freezing with relatively new snow and low humidity on the course.


Our sale has been going well, so we're going to keep it rolling until Sunday, February 18th.  Check out details in the next article...
