Latest News

Details on our big sale running noon Thursday through Sunday.  Updates on wax predictions for Owl Creek....   Read More...

This weekend is going to be a big one as we have the Owl Creek Chase and a huge sale that we have been planning for a few weeks.  In addition to a great selection of skis, boots, poles, wax and other new inventory, we will be selling a large demo fleet of Salomon boots and skis at big discounts.  The sale begins Thursday and will go through the weekend.

We also have early reports for the Owl Creek Chase in Aspen inside...


There is a lot going on this weekend and once again it will be COLD.  Really Cold.  Check out our wax and grind recommendations inside.  We have added SkiGo to our wax lines and there are a lot of great waxes to add to the aresenal.  The packaging may be from 1971, but the wax is fast.

Don't miss our big sale we have planned for Feb 8-11.  Each day will have a specific theme with 30% off with sales of many other items at 20-25%.  We will post more info on-line and in the store.


Cold again, but this time for real...

We'll be at the Devil's Thumb Pursuit with our test fleet of stone grinds and we will be demoing the skis after the race, so come by the Swix tent and try some out...


Exciting things happening this week.  We received the last of the 2006-7 production of Fischer Carbonlites, we have six pairs of the completely redesigned 2008 Salomon skis to test out and lots is going on at the shop as well as on the race scene.



The Boulder Training Group will meet at North Boulder Park on Tuesday morning at 6:45.  We will focus on skate technique.  6:45 AM at the park

On Wednesday, we will go up to Eldora and focus on classical.  If there are skaters, we will have one coach there for skating, otherwise we'll all do classic.  6:45 AM at the lodge, 7AM, warmed up and ready to go at four corners intersection


The weather is not going as expected in Fraser/Winter Park.  Current conditions as of 3PM Friday were 34F and partly cloudy.  It looks like the cold and snow are not materializing and so it may be advisable to have a second pair with Swix LF7 and be prepared for some warm wax.


It's going to be cold and snowy this weekend, so we've got a lot of info and special sales to keep you warm, toasty and gliding fast.  Thursday's wax clinic topic is Classical technique followed by open wax night where we have benches, irons, tools and expert advice to help you wax your skis and get ready for what is shaping up to be another snowy weekend.

We will be running a 15% off sale on all Swix base layer, outerwear and gloves through Sunday.  Cold waxes are 20%, see store for details.

The Snow Mountain Classic is Saturday, with the Winter Triathlon taking place Sunday at Devil's Thumb Ranch.  Check the details of this news item for wax recommendations from Boulder Nordic Sport, Swix and Toko.

We are also running a special race waxing special for the weekend.  See inside for details.


It should be easy to hit a wax that works well for this weekend's Colorado Cup races, but a little bit tougher to find the absolute perfect wax.  Low overnight temps combined with rapid warming make it difficult to predict the snow conditions.  We have some feedback from DU coaches and grind recommendations inside.   Read More...

We have a final update for the 2006-2007 Colorado Cup.  Check it out.  A great series with a lot of fun racing...
