The life of a snowflake starts with delicate, atmospheric crystal formation and ends with sudden mangling beneath the snowboards of teenagers. Prepare to frolic in nature's snowy beauty with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of winter sports gear and apparel at Buckeye Sports Center's locations in Peninsula, at Boston Mills Ski Resort in Peninsula, or at Brandywine Ski Resort in Sagamore Hills. Today’s Groupon is also valid at Buckeye Sports Center’s partner business, Sun Valley Sports, in Akron.
Buckeye Sports Center and its partner business, Sun Valley Sports, have been outfitting slope-slicers with premium ski and snowboard gear and apparel from The North Face, Under Armour, and O'Neill for more than 50 years. Winter fans stay concentrated while jetting down mountain slopes or taking mid-lift biology quizzes with a pair of Skullcandy Smokin’ Buds earphones ($29.99), and craniums stay toasty when ensconced in a snazzy scalp warmer, such as The North Face's Ski Tuke III beanie ($30). An Under Armour Tech long-sleeve tee ($24.99) wicks moisture away from powder-carving bods, saving skiers the hassle of lining their clothes with silica packets. Browsers can also consider Buckeye's and Sun Valley’s extensive collections of sleek skis and snowboards from manufacturers including Nordica and Burton.
Buckeye Sports Center’s Boston Mills and Brandywine locations offer limited hours beginning November 25, 2011, and full-time service once the resorts’ ski areas open. Consult each location’s page on the Buckeye website for more information and tips for jumping through hoops of ice.
Buckeye Sports Center
For more than half a century, Buckeye Sports Center has outfitted outdoorsfolk with winter and summer sporting gear from brands such as O’Neill, Connelly, Nordica, and Dynastar. Every season, full-time employees diligently test the store’s selection of snow boots and ski equipment to match Midwestern snow conditions, factory-trained boat mechanics service Mercury motors and jet skis, and recreation scientists research ways to conquer the unexplored frontier of water-vapor sports. Knowledgeable staff members match customers to perfectly fitting skis, boards, and boots, and a fleet of Hobie kayaks and glistening powered speed and fishing boats opens up lakes and rivers for fun-filled voyages of exploration.
