Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Prepare to spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a ski or snowboard Pro Tune from Colorado Ski Tunes (a $45 value). After placing their order online, customers can leave their skis and boards outside their home or workplace, where one of Colorado Ski Tunes' staff of snow nuts will whisk them away in an eco-friendly, biodiesel delivery truck. Over the next three days, talented technicians will sharpen edges and smooth scratches in a series of ski-pampering treatments that will leave the most exhausted equipment feeling refreshed. A stone grind for the base, which improves control on the slopes or on sidewalks covered in motor oil, and a hot wax complete the treatment, after which the skis or boards are dropped off at a location of your choice. For an extra $7.50, you can upgrade to rush-order status for a next-day turnaround.

Colorado Ski Tunes
Colorado Ski Tunes' experienced technicians–all snowboarding and skiing enthusiasts–are well versed in both minor repairs and major overhauls for winter sports equipment. The staff also displays a determined dedication to the environment, filling all of their delivery vehicles’ gas tanks with vegetable oil, which greatly reduces toxic emissions while increasing cravings for french fries.
