Whether you’re shopping for an entry-level skier or an experienced racer these picks from our staff are sure to be a hit. From apparel and gear to great last-minute stocking stuffers, we’ve got you covered.

1) Toko Profi Glove | $45

The Toko Profi is a lightweight yet warm glove that’s a favorite for racers in mid- to warm-weather. The box-construction fingers have ventilating mesh on the sides making it a very versatile glove that’s great for racing in down to 15F or rollersking. SHOP HERE.

2) Darn Tough Captain Stripe Over-the-Calf Cushion Sock | $24

These socks are so much more than a stocking stuffer. The Captain goes big on comfort and cushioning with patriotism and pride. Just like every single pair of Darn Tough socks, these are made in Northfield, Vermont, USA. SHOP HERE.

3) Skigo HF 4-pack | $30

SkiGo HF Kick Waxes offer an incredibly broad range and are very useful in difficult conditions and especially when conditions on the course are highly variable. We have found these to be incredible alone or covered to speed them up. SHOP HERE.

4) Madshus Terrasonic Intelligrip Classic Skis | $349

A must-have ski for the classic skier in your life who wants to train or race without dealing with kick wax. Like all of the Madshus skin skis the Terrasonic is the same ski as the waxable version, with Intelligrip mohair insert under the kickzone in lieu of kick wax or fish scales. The durable 70/30 mohair/nylon insert provides a strong, positive kick and a surprising amount of glide. SHOP HERE.

5) Airtrim Cold Air Mask | $65

Aerobic activities in cold weather can make it challenging for many to breath. The Cold Air Mask from Airtrim is a comfortable, easy-to-use solution. With many different filter options that warm the air and allow for different amounts of airflow, the Cold Air Mask can fit a variety of activities. For those suffering from asthma, a dedicated filter helps to warm the air as much as possible. In racing situations, other filters can be used that maximize airflow. SHOP HERE.

6) Fischer Drinkbelt Professional| $35

A great way to carry water on cold training days. The Fischer Drinkbelt Professional had an 1L bottle capacity with thermo insulation, a padded back panel and plenty of storage for kick wax and snacks. It has an adjustable waist belt and reflective piping for increased visibility at night. We have many different kinds of insulated drink belts from SkiGo, Holmenkol, Madshus, Rossignol, Daehlie and others! SHOP HERE.

7) Rossignol X-ium Skate Skis | $450

A fantastic all-around ski for performance-minded fitness skiers or anyone looking for a great value. The new Rossignol X-ium is a great second-tier ski with a price that’s equally impressive. We were also able to hand-pick these skis at Rossignol this season, allowing us to choose great flex profiles. With Turnamic binding plate.SHOP HERE.

8) Swix Quantum 2 Poles | $220 with strap

The Quantum 2 delivers huge performance for racers on a budget. This new pole from Swix has the unenviable task of replacing the Swix star, probably the most successful racing pole of all time. Weight and stiffness are fantastic for a pole that is half the price of the top racing poles. Call BNS to order.

9) Craft Active Gunde Short Wind Brief | $40

A must-have for any male who is active outdoors in cold weather. Featuring the remarkable moisture management that Craft is famous for, the Gunde short’s defining feature is the GORE Windstopper® that provides critical protection in cold and windy conditions. A perfect gift to show him that you care! SHOP HERE.

10) Kari Traa Rett Half-Zip Top & Pant | Top: $110, Pant: $100

Stylish and cozy these highly-functional baselayers from Kari Traa wick moisture away and dry quickly. With body mapping construction, the Rett Half-Zip top and pant both come with strategic ventilation zones, flatlock seams for reduced chafing and flattering ergonomically cut lines. Super comfy! SHOP TOP HERE and SHOP BOTTOM HERE.

11 ) Hestra Women’s XC primaloft Mitt | $50

Because skiers always appreciate the serious warmth of mittens on those extra cold days. These cross-country specific mittens are filled with Primaloft insulation to keep hands warm no matter what the weather dishes up. SHOP HERE.

12) Madshus Nano Carbon Skate | $450 Skate

The new Nano Carbon Skate boot from Madshus is an upgraded version of one of our favorites. With a new split sole and integrated footbed, it’s now even closer in performance to the race-level Madshus Super Nano without the cost of all that carbon fiber. SHOP HERE.

13) Madshus Nano Carbon Classic Boots | $320 Classic

The Madshus Nano Carbon classic boots are another favorite boot of ours that has been gently upgraded for the 2018-2019 season. It’s still a great, universally fitting boot with Xcelerator sole and the new upper is more breathable. SHOP HERE.
