Momentum Northwest

We have partnered with Momentum Northwest to create a team shop where you can find all of your resources for skiing-related equipment including wax, gear, and more! If you have any questions regarding specific products or are looking to get set up with a ski package, don't hesitate to reach out to us at 763-420-8981

 

Ski Essentials

 

Depending on your program/experience level we are happy to help you get set up on the right skis for the season, due to changing availability please reach our directly through our ski request form here https://www.pioneermidwest.com/ski-services/ski-request or give us a call at the shop in order to get properly fit for skis this 21/22 season. 

 

*** All Momentum Northwest athletes can use code "Momentum" at checkout for an additional 10% off!

 

Pole Essentials

 

We recommend most athletes take the jump to a Quantum 6 pole or higher level as this is the first pole in the Swix lineup that utilizes a full hand strap as opposed to a loop strap. For younger athletes, we recommend going with a basic pole like the Quantum 5 Jr pole. Each pole page has an accurate sizing chart based on athlete height for easy pole selection! Racing athletes can reach out directly for more details on specifics between higher-end pole models.

 

Boot Essentials

 

We strongly recommend an intermediate-level combi boot for all Momentum Northwest athletes as they see a big jump in both fit adjustment and overall skiing-specific performance. The Salomon Pro Combi Prolink is compatible with all NNN, Turnamic, and Prolink style bindings while also offering the most adjustment for a boot at its price point. The toe of the boot offers flex for classic skiing and optimal snow feel while the sole offers torsional stiffness for a responsive skating platform.

 

For younger athletes and smaller sizes, we recommend the Salomon S/Race Skiathlon Prolink Jr which is built on a very similar platform.

 

Waxing Essentials

 

On the waxing side of things, there are numerous excellent options from every major brand that offer similar performance and applications. We have selected a handful of key items that skiers should have for a well-rounded wax box in order to be prepared for the season. It is broken down into specifics below!

Swix PS6 - Colder Temperature glide wax 10f-24f approximate range
