With a never-ending supply of hot cocoa, crackling hearths, and antlers on full display, ski lodges trump stinky locker rooms as the sporting world's most luxurious of natural habitats. Fit right in despite your shaky mastery of the chair lift with today's Groupon to evo. You get $50 worth of slope gear or ski and snowboard services for $25. CityVoters voted evo one of the Best Ski and Snowboard Shops in 2008 and 2009.
With an extensive selection of skis, bindings, poles, parts, tiny kegs that go around dogs' necks, and clothing and accessories for men and women, snowpups and pine-sniffers can gear up with evo's myriad brands, such as Oakley, Helly Hansen, Dakine, Ride, Liquid Force, and more. From ambitiously hued outerwear (such as a yellow-green jacket from The North Face for $127.90) to lightweight printed socks ($18–$24), evo is a one-stop shop for all slopetastical specifications. Even if you don't need something new, a professional tune-up can improve your time on the slopes and help keep your equipment shiny and functional. Raggedy skis can get a professional-grade tune-up ($55), or you can maintain your foot lengtheners with a hot wax and sharp edges ($25). You can also get binding work, including ski mounts ($35) and adjustments ($15).
Unlike running and swimming, impromptu make-shift uniforms won't work for snowboarding and skiing. When throwing yourself headfirst into the elements of ice, snow, and wind, it's important to be protected by more than your unearned confidence. Cold weather outerwear and gear is necessity this time of the year, but evo stocks just as much summer merch when your boards start needing wheels and your clothes start needing shrinkage. Call the store to see when the warmer street wear collections start rolling in. Though this Groupon is good for in-store use only, an easy-to-navigate site design gives you a glimpse of what's in evo's spacious and artfully arranged store. If you don't spend you Groupon all at once, the remaining balance will carry over to a gift card.

Started in 2001 as a small operation in founder Bryce Phillips’s Seattle apartment, evo has since grown into a full-fledged retail store voted Best Ski and Snowboard Shop three years in a row in CityVoter’s King5 Best of Western Washington poll. Inside, Bryce and his crew of more than 100 winter- and summer-sports enthusiasts help visitors gear up for adventure with equipment by makers such as Armada, K2 Burton, and Lib Tech and outerwear from The North Face and Patagonia. A team of technicians also keeps equipment in top condition with tune-ups and other services, sharpening skis and waxing snowboards to keep them from growing fur. At evo’s flagship Fremont/Wallingford store, the staff relays the company-wide values of style, a balanced lifestyle, and authenticity by hosting events such as movie screenings and art showcases and devoting extra time to serving nonprofits throughout the community.
