Snowflakes are a lot like children: unique and special individually, but annoying when hundreds of them pile up on your lawn. Make the most of it with this Groupon.
$24 for a Tune-Up for One Ski or Snowboard ($49.99 Value)
Using a new Montana stone-grinding machine, technicians tune up skis and snowboards by honing the edges and base before sheathing the surfaces in coats of wax and polish. Clients can return to pick up their gear in 24 hours.
After living in Utah for a decade, Gary and Jana Cole fell in love with the mountains, inspiring them to open their namesake store in 1982 as a means of helping others enjoy the region's snowy slopes and rugged trails. At four locations throughout Park City, alpine adventurers can rent or buy name-brand skis and snowboards to replace their trusty but outdated cafeteria trays, gear up with fashionable and practical snow-sport apparel from brands such as Kjus and Bogner, or bring in worn-out equipment for expert repairs.
In the summer, Cole Sport helps athletes return to the outdoors after a fear of yetis kept them cooped up inside all winter. Cyclists test out models from a fleet of Giant road, mountain, and cruise bikes at the Giant Bicycles concept store, and aquatic athletes can find Surftech stand-up paddleboards to help them explore Utah's natural lakes and in-ground pools.
