Boulder Nordic Sport ships via UPS and US Postal Service (USPS).  Other carriers can be arranged.  We generally ship via USPS Priority Mail or UPS 2-day to Alaska.

Packaging & The Environment

BNS is concerned about the environment.  We recycle boxes and packing materials to save the earth and reduce your costs.  If you would prefer virgin packaging, please note this during checkout.

Oversize Items

An oversized item surcharge is added for large items such as skis and poles.  We make every effort to make our real-time shipping estimates reliable, but in general, expect shipping for large items in the lower 48 to cost:
Skis: $35 for first pair, $10/pair after.
Poles: $20 for up to three pairs, $5/pair after.

International Shipping and Alaska/Hawaii

Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and Internationally is available.  Recipient is responsible for all brokerage fees, duties, taxes and fees for international shipments.  BNS cannot ship items as "gifts", so please don't ask.  For International shipments, we generally use US Postal Service Priority Mail.

Australia Note: US Postal Service has a limit of 42 inches (107cm) for packages to Australia, so poles and skis must be shipped by UPS, Fedex or DHL to Australia.

Order Processing & Shipping Times

We make our best effort to ship orders the same day they are received.  Service work such as binding mounting, pole cutting, and stone grinding increases lead time. Most product is shipped from our Boulder, Colorado headquarters, but occasionally we ship out of our Portland, Maine store.

Delivery time maps for UPS ground are below.  If you need your order on a specific time schedule, please contact us to ensure that we choose the right method to make it happen.
