Well-maintained skis make it easier to avoid avalanches caused by loud sounds, earthquakes, and quickly multiplying bunny hills. Outrun the rabbit population with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a basic ski tune-up at Allspeed Cyclery & Snow (a $30 value) on Auburn Street.
Owned by winter-sport wizards Chris Carleton and Mike Davies, Allspeed Cyclery & Snow toils to restore out-of-shape skis to tiptop form with expert and personalized attention. Eschewing repair machines and constantly rebooting robots, Allspeed painstakingly iron-waxes all skis by hand, providing a finer tune that endures much longer than with traditional tuning processes. After their skis' bases and edges are flattened and sharpened by Allspeed's wet belt, snow junkies will zoom down the mountain while gleefully taunting gangs of abominable snowmen. With 20 years of ski-retailing prowess, Chris and Mike possess the detail-oriented knowledge needed to tune-up anyone's skis or elongated clown feet.
