Razor-sharp ski and snowboard edges allow people to zigzag over moguls, slalom through trees, or shave a yak’s back. Yakkety yak shave that back with today’s Groupon to Chicago Ski Pro. Choose between the following options:

  • For $24, you get a basic ski or snowboard tune-up (a $49.99 value)
  • For $43, you get a basic ski or snowboard tune-up and a Hot Box service (an $87.98 value).

The winter-sports enthusiasts who sit behind the counters at Chicago Ski Pro snap out of daydreams about powdery slopes to sharpen ski and snowboard edges and to swathe them in hot wax. The shop’s basic tune-up begins with a base cleaning to rid your ride’s underside of crusty dirt and snowman blood. After flattening the bases to ensure a balanced journey down the slopes, technicians sharpen edges with a precision machine and delicately adjust the angles on the tips and tails. Chips or dents incurred during run-ins with rocky cliff faces or toothy polar bears disappear after a quick polish and deburrment, and a brass brush scrapes away peeling strips of wax.

Fresh-scrubbed skis and boards then head in for a relaxing sauna treatment in the Hot Box, a World Cup–level waxing device used by the US and other national ski teams. The device radiates heat to evenly warm bases and prepare them for maximum wax penetration, allowing for a full season’s worth of graceful glissades and high-speed zigzags down the mountain. Both services typically take about two–three days to complete, and Chicago Ski Pro’s free Boomerang delivery service slings equipment back to its rightful owners after a complimentary binding check.
