The winter blues settle in when people get sick of staying indoors, watching the same reruns, and knitting tiny mittens for their house centipedes. Get back to nature and out of that teeming lair of insects with today's Groupon to Play It Again Sports, valid at the Anchorage locations, on Spenard Road and Old Seward Highway, and at the Wasilla location, on South Seward Meridian Parkway. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get a full ski or snowboard tuning with a stone base grind (a $40 value).
- For $75, you get unlimited winter-season ski or snowboard tuning for one pair of skis or one snowboard until April, 30 2012 (up to a $200 value).
For more than 19 years, the staffers at Play It Again Sports have bedecked kids and adults with high-end, wallet-friendly athletic armor and gear so that they can carve, grind, kick, swing, and punt with gusto. During each tuning, a professional snow-sport expert preps equipment for hitting the slopes, dusting off snowboards and resocializing feral skis that have been locked in the attic all summer. A stone base grind ensures that gear will be ready to handle the runs with minimal drag.
Riders can opt for unlimited tune-ups throughout the season, keeping snow-traversing surfaces ready to tackle blue squares, black diamonds, and hopelessly lost dolphins for as many outings as they can handle. Play It Again Sports’ ski-and-snowboard shop resides in the Spenard location; however customers can drop off gear at any of the three stores and Play It Again Sports will have it back in customer’s care in three days at the Anchorage locations, and within 7–10 days at the Wasilla location.
Play It Again Sports
For more than two decades, Play It Again Sports has facilitated grand-slam moments and outfitted future champions with new, used, and gently used sports gear and apparel. Youngsters who have outgrown their gear and adults picking up a new sport can outfit themselves with selections from popular makers such as Bauer, Easton, and K2. This gear helps equip competitive athletes playing sports such as soccer and golf as well as noncompetitive sportspeople who prefer wearing football helmets while driving their golf carts. Patrons can also trade in or sell their equipment and put that money toward new gear.
