Hot Wax Services

Paraffin wax is applied with a waxing iron, allowed to cool, then scraped and brushed. Perfect for touring skis, recreational cross-country, or race training.

Basic (hydrocarbon wax): $20

Pro (low fluorocarbon wax): $29

Premium (high fluorocarbon wax): $45


Hotbox Service

Hotboxing is the perfect way to prep new skis and rejuvenates older skis that have been neglected.

Paraffin wax is applied to the bases and then the skis are placed in a custom-built convection oven that keeps a consistent temperature, allowing the ski bases to become saturated with wax. One BNS hotbox treatment is equal to roughly 15 wax jobs using a traditional wax iron.

Hotbox Service (two steps: saturation wax followed by low fluorocarbon hardener): $35

Summer Storage Hotbox Service (three steps: chemical clean, saturation wax, and hardening wax) $45
