What You'll Get
The winter blues settle in when people get sick of staying indoors, watching the same reruns, and knitting tiny mittens for their house centipedes. Get back to nature and out of that teeming lair of insects with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a stone-grind ski or snowboard tune-up at Country Ski & Sport’s (up to a $70 value), valid at locations in Quincy, Westwood, and Hanson.
For more than 40 seasons, the dedicated family at Country Ski & Sport has equipped ice riders with gear worthy of friction-free arctic exploration. Each ski or snowboard tune-up begins with a thorough cleaning and P-Tex base treatment to fill any scratches, gouges, or graffiti etched by rival riders. Next, a stone-grinding session will work to improve handling, speed, and stability. The expert technicians will then sharpen and bevel the edges according to the manufacturers' specifications. Each ski or snowboard spa experience concludes with a hot-wax treatment, which prevents skis from causing mid-mountain stumbles and keeps snowboards from growing unsightly beards.
In addition keeping rides slope-ready, Country Ski & Sport’s snow-taming team equips entourages with boots, helmets, goggles, and accessories by companies, including The North Face, Transpack, Oakley, Elan, and K2 (not included in today's Groupon). Behind the counter, friendly employees answer customers’ questions and impress bystanders by naming all 600 Klingon words for snow.

About Country Ski and Sport
For 44 years, adventurers and outdoor athletes have emerged from Country Ski and Sport armored in quality apparel and equipped with sturdy vessels, poised to conquer mountains, rivers, and bike paths. The Stenson family—which founded the sportsman’s haven in 1970—shares the clientele’s passion for outdoor excursions, and staff three facilities with a team of knowledgeable employees boasting more than 225 collective years of industry experience. The friendly staff draws upon outdoor know-how to match customers with pairs of skis, snowboards, kayaks, or bikes that suit their needs and size. Adventure-appropriate apparel from North Face or Under Armour keeps bodies warm while they’re slaloming down slopes or luging to work. To help customers prepare for the sporting seasons, technicians also repair and tune up skis, snowboards, and bicycles, and offer seasonal leasing options for snow equipment.
