Pioneer Midwest will be offering Birkie Race waxing service again for 2020. Leave your waxing kit at home and forget about the nervous worrying over snow conditions. We will spend hours and hows on snow and carefully selecting each layer of wax so you can have the fastest skis on course. Last season we had more skiers move up to the elite wave than ever before.
This year the dropoff deadline is by 8pm on Tuesday, February 18th in-store. Skis will be transported the same day up to Hayward, which will allow us to do testing/waxing on site.
Again this year, skate pick up will be at the Birkie start line under the Pioneer Midwest tent. The skis will be sorted by racer wave. We will be testing various kick wax options and giving recommendations as well as selling kick products for you to apply. Note-We will not be applying kick wax race morning, but will have both top coat and kickwax for sale.
