Snow has two positive uses: it can be used to build snow-jurors when neighbors don't show up to serve in a nonbinding apartment court, and you can snowboard on it. Revel in arctic amusements with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a snowboard wax and sharpening at Elements Boardshop on West 12th Street (a $25 value).
Elements’ board tuning precisely sharpens the edges of discordant snow slats to slice and dice ice trails and maximize rider control. Surface burrs, speed impeding oxidation, and singing barnacles all get the boot to ensure swift trips to the bottom of the mountain. A slick layer of molded hot wax increases slippage and mutes friction to facilitate smooth and even rides on all varieties of snow slides.
After refreshing their foot yachts, snow bunnies can harvest a full wardrobe of cold-weather outfits, boots, gloves, and helmets. Elements stocks an arsenal of equipment and apparel to harness the adrenaline drips set off by rapid momentum. The shop's affable staff of experts aid pleasure-seeking patrons by proffering lessons, renting gear, and mending boards and skis for optimal mirth mustering. And once the snow melts, outdoor mavens can shop from Elements’ supply of skateboarding, wakeboarding, and waterskiing goods.
