Birkie Race Wax Service

Gear WestFebruary 10, 2016

Gear West Premier Race Wax Service

(Press release)

Training for a Cross Country Ski Marathon is hard enough.  Save time and reduce stress by having your skis precision glide waxed by the best in the business! Race wax service is available for the 2016 American Birkebeiner. The service includes an LF base layer, HF race layer, 100% Fluoro top-coat, and hand structuring. Testing and waxing will be done on site to ensure the best possible skis for you.

The service is available for both classical and skate skis. It is important to note, however, that for classical skis only binder wax will be applied to the kick pocket. We will provide recommendations for kick and an area to apply wax at ski pickup, but due to the wide variance in the amount of kick preferred, we do NOT APPLY KICK WAX for you.

Please note for the American Birkebeiner.  All skis will be picked up at the Birkie Start Line.  This provides the allotted time for the best possible wax service for you.

We highly recommended that if you are not dropping off your skis at Gear West the week before the Birkie, that you ship your skis to Gear West ahead of time.  See shipping address below.  

If you drop your skis off Friday at the Birkie Expo, you will be charged a Friday Drop Off Charge: $104.99 for skating & $114.99 for classic. Again, we recommend shipping your skis ahead of time to Gear West.

Further information about the 2016 Marathon Race Services is available HERE. If you have any questions, please call us at 877-473-4327 or email

Ship your skis ahead of time to this address:
