Westfield Water Sports and Wilderness Experiences?a kayak, SUP, camping, and scuba gear shop as well as a camping store and adventure emporium?dispatches a staff of certifiable adventure-seekers to lead sojourners into the great outdoors with scuba classes, kayak classes, dive and non-dive world travel, and rock-climbing excursions. An all-around outdoorsman, camp director T. Scott Cook leans on his doctorate of Leadership Development in Adventure Education to develop nature excursions, including far-flung trips where groups snorkel in the Cayman Islands or evolve gills in the Galapagos. Back home, the summer camp?s elaborate ropes course builds teamwork between coworkers, and caving adventures allow guests to delve into mysterious depths or apartment swap with a black bear.

At The Water's Edge's dive masters shepherd flocks of neophyte Nemos through a three-hour discover scuba class, teaching divers the ropes of safety techniques, equipment usage, and actual ropes. After on-land instruction, scuba students reconvene in the on-site pool for more than two hours of educational submersion. Designed with beginners in mind, the classes accommodate Groupon holders looking to stretch their gills to prep for hydrovacations or win back true loves from the arms of an amorous octopus.

The course at East Mountain Country Club escorts golfers over lush fairways buffered by thick groves of pinewood forest. In order to challenge the par of 71, golfers must tread carefully over 6,010 yards of golf anchored by SR 7200 velvet bentgrass greens. The putting surface grows in thick to keep out weeds and magical beanstalks, allowing a smooth roll. Course manager and PGA Professional Ted Perez Jr. conducts lessons on East Mountain's driving range and putting and chipping greens. His teaching philosophy emanates from 34 years of golf instruction, centering on improvement of the short game and fundamental mechanics in order to achieve lower scores. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,010 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 68.8 from the back tees * Course slope of 120 from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole

Colorado Ski Shop outfits outdoor athletes with everything they need to explore Mother Nature's picturesque playgrounds by ski, snowboard, cycle, or snowshoe. Keep Jack Frost's chilly embrace from getting awkwardly personal by bundling up in a Roxy Jewel riding jacket ($84.95). Rossignol's PMC black ski poles ($34.95) will help skiers maintain equilibrium and provide a last line of defense against both abominable snowmen and unusually aggressive regular snowmen. Add an element of peeper protection with Spy Targa II goggles ($49.95), or leave mitts dexterous enough for après-ski shadow puppetry with Dakine Element gloves ($39.95). Slopephobes can comfortably cross countries with Rossignol X1 cross-country boots ($74.95), stroll across the most thoroughly flaked landscapes in Tubbs Xplore snowshoes ($129.95), or cruise wooded trails long after the snow has migrated north for the summer with the help of a mountain bike. An easily navigable website helps online shoppers sort through Colorado Ski Shop's broad selection quickly and easily, and a seven-day return policy lets customers make their purchases with the obnoxious confidence of an adult playing dodgeball with blindfolded children.
