Government officials typically advise opponents against making mountains out of molehills, as moles typically demand exorbitant funding for underground half-pipes. Enjoy affordable aboveground snow sporting with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of apparel, rentals, gear, or tune-ups at Blindside. This Groupon is not valid for sale items or high-end demos of skis or snowboards.
Blindside, which CityVoters named Best Ski and Snowboard Shop in 2009, is home to knowledgeable local riders and board menders with its owner possessing more than 18 years of experience. The owner or a friendly staff member has personally tested all of the assorted name-brand apparel, gear, and products that line the stocked store shelves. The ski and snowboard rental packages allow thrill-seekers of all ages to scale the mountain snowscapes in chunks, ranging from a one-day kids ski package ($10, aged 12 and under) to an adult snowboarding package for one day ($22) or three days ($42).
Riders can also entrust bruised foot-saddles to Blindside's passionate tune-up and repair shop, in which the professionally certified owner personally undertakes each renovation. Gussy up your board with a wax ($9, graphite/race $10), full tune ($18, includes edge sharpening, base grind, and hand wax), or race tune ($21, includes full tune plus bevels and graphite microcrystalline wax).
