Boulder Nordic Sport Shipping Policy

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. Real-time rates are used to calculate shipping costs on the web site, including international and Alaska/Hawaii. In the event of a significant discrepancy between quoted shipping rates and reality, you will be contacted.

Shipping Quotes

Our web site provides detailed shipping rate quotes for all available shipping options, including international shipments. Create an account with your address and you can get shipping quotes as you place items in the shopping cart.  You can also get a complete rate quote by beginning the checkout process.  Step 3 of checkout will provide you with shipping options and quotes before you enter billing information.  You can also visit USPS.com to get a rate quote and shipping time estimate.

Oversize Items

An oversize 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: $25 for first pair, $10/pair after.
Poles: $15 for first pair, $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.  We do not ship US International Mail due to unreliability.

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.

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.

Order Processing & Shipping Times

We make our best effort to ship orders the same day they are received and do a good job at this.  Most orders are shipped within a day of receipt. Service work such as binding mount, pole cutting and stone grinding will increase 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.
