Birkie 2018 - What a difference!
The Birkie is back. Not a single big snow storm has hit the area this season, but is has been the season of many 2" and 3" snowfalls and consistently cold weather. Amazingly, the Birkie Trail has not experienced a single melt-down since it all began in early December. Combined with World Cup-caliber grooming from the trail crew, '17/'18 has been a story-book season for the Birkie. Trust us - the Birkie Trail is in magnificent condition - you won't be disappointed!

The New Moon family welcomes you all back to Hayward! Elites, volunteers, Barkie Birkie dogs... everyone! We hope you enjoy the Main Street finish for all three races and the easier traffic flow with the new, 4-lane bridge in place.
At New Moon, we've been busily prepping our store with some really special deals for race week. Have a look at this week's newsletter and you'll certainly see something that will be the icing on the cake for your Birkie experience.

Again, welcome! We're here each day for you! See you soon...

Don't forget to give your skin skis some love this Birkie. Swix Skin Care Pro waxes and cleaner are the most advanced treatments available. The Cold emphasizes glide when friction is the highest. The Zero balances both glide  and anti- Icing near freezing. The Warm is highly hydrophobic and dirt-repellent for the wettest and dirtiest snows. Use Pro Cleaner after your outing to refresh the skin pattern.

Every skin skier should use these products!
