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 Billy’s Boardshop in Montrose. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a ski or snowboard tune-up (a $30 value).
- For $25, you get $50 worth of store merchandise.
An all-season sporting-goods store, Billy’s Boardshop equips sports enthusiasts riding boards on the surf, pavement, and snow. The shop boasts sports gear and athletic apparel from major brands, such as Obey, Billabong, Brixton, and Lucy Love, and multicolored snowboards line Billy’s Boardshop’s walls. During a ski or snowboard tune-up, an experienced crewmember inspects the base and edges of each landcraft, grinding to reduce flexibility, waxing to rejuvenate exteriors, and testing to ensure equipment is fit to carve smiley faces into the snow. Snow surfers bound for downhill sessions on the slopes can cocoon their feet in men and women’s UGG Australia boots ($140–$290) or Toms shoes ($44–$69). Burton snowboards ($300–$500) drift smoothly on inclines, and skateboards ($40–$140) celebrate the Stone Age with four-wheeled propulsion. For ease of shopping, customers coming in directly off a mountain can leave their snowmobiles and tame sasquatches in the free parking behind the shop.
