ProShop COVID Policy
This year we will be asking shoppers looking to purchase ski equipment to make an appointment. This will help us manage the people and space in our building better. Clothing, ski service or wax purchases don’t need an appointment and you can drop in for those items during our operating hours. Staff will be wearing gloves and we will ask customers to sanitize upon entering the shop and before trying on boots. We will ask you to follow the marked one way directional arrows in the shop to help with social distancing. You may try on clothing, although please keep in mind whatever you aren’t going to purchase will be put aside for 24hrs. We ask you only to try on those items you are seriously considering for purchase.
We encourage questions about equipment through emails and phone calls, but we will also have a drop in time for those looking to browse and the see the equipment beforehand. Please note we will not be able to test skis or try on boots during this time. Drop in hours are between 3PM to 4:30PM. As always, we are happy to answer any questions you may have and will continue to provide the knowledge and service that you have come to expect.
Appointments can be made online starting mid October.

DUST EM' OFF SKI SWAP
The Highlands Trailblazer Dust Em' Off Ski Swap is a go for this year! We are doing everything we can to keep customers, volunteers and staff safe. Which means that the Swap will operate a little differently this year. Please read through the notes you understand our limitations. A few key things to know:
- Swap Date: October 31st (10AM to 4PM) & November 1st (9AM to 2PM)
- You must wear a mask while in the Highlands Nordic building. Please respect this policy.
- All equipment being submitted into the Swap needs to be dropped of by Wednesday October 28th.
- You will need to book a time slot to enter the Swap. There will be a $10 charge to book your time slot, which will act as a credit towards your ski swap purchase.
- There will be an option to “drop in” on Saturday October 31st, 2020 between 1:45PM to 3:45PM. There is no charge to drop in, although we cannot guarantee when you will be able to enter the swap.
- Time slot booking will begin at the beginning of October.
- Due to the high demand of service needs during the ski swap, we are unable to provide binding installs, ski waxing and other in depth ski service “while you wait” during the ski swap. There will be service intake where we can sort out what you need. Any service equipment dropped off during the ski swap will be ready for pick up by Saturday November 7th, 2020.

Here is what we can offer you in Highlands Nordic Pro Shop
Skis and Poles
The Highlands Pro Shop offers a variety of classic and skate skis, ranging from introductory recreation equipment to top of the line race gear. Highlands sells both Fischer and Madshus skis, two of the top selling brands in the industry. We also offer a full range of poles from basic recreation poles to top of the line 100% carbon shaft poles. Brand names include Swix, Madshus, and Yoko.
Camber Testing and Much More...
When fitting you for equipment our staff first gathers information from you related to your skiing ability and the purpose you are buying the equipment for (examples: getting outside in winter, participating in a loppet, racing at the National Championships), as well as where you are planning to use the equipment. Next our staff picks out equipment for you based on height and more importantly, camber. You-and your new skis- will be put on a camber board to determine the stiffness of the ski as well as how the ski distributes your weight. This is important in both classic and skate skiing.
As important as picking out a well fitting ski is picking out a boot to fit your foot and your lifestyle. We provide Salomon, Fischer, and Alpina brand classic and skate boots in a variety of styles and price points. When fitting boots we ensure your heel is secure, but the toe box is comfortable.
We offer ski specific clothing including ski tights, jerseys, long underwear, warm ups, gloves, socks, and toques. We also offer a variety of clothing that is appropriate for skiing but can also be used for running and/or cycling. Brands include, Swix, Craft, Louis Garneau, Sugoi, Yoko, Auclair, Buff, Lorpen, and much more!
The Highlands Nordic Pro Shop also offers a variety of accessories, including Neos overboots, waterbottle holders, and Ryders sunglasses.
Wax and Waxing Accessories
Our staff can provide you with extensive waxing and ski care knowledge. We carry Swix, Ski Go, Rode, Vaughti, and Toko waxes and accessories. Accessories include ski forms, irons, rillers, and more. If we don't have what you want, we can likely get it.
