Customers enter Extreme Snowboard & Ski to navigate a fully automated system that outfits them for snow treks with any of the store’s nondemo rental equipment. Before hitting the slopes, skiers and snowboarders step up to the computerized terminal to browse, select, and compare the dating profiles of more than 550 skis and more than 250 snowboards. Glide over powdery terrain on equipment from brands such as Atomic, Saloman, and Lib Tech. Equipped winter athletes can head over to Sugar Mountain, which is located across from the shop, or venture to nearby Beech Mountain and ride to the top of peaks on chairlifts that, like Santa’s reindeer, defy gravity using cables (admission to ski resorts is not included with this Groupon).
Extreme Snowboard and Ski
Since 2001, Extreme Snowboard and Ski has populated the slopes of Sugar Mountain Resort with snow sportsters outfitted with rental and retail equipment, as well as apparel from brands such as Neff, Loki, and Grenade. The ski shop’s prime location at the entrance to mountain makes it a convenient stop for downhillers in need of rental skis or snowboards, a new pair of Spy or Smith goggles, or equipment tuning performed by the onsite repair technicians. The tech team treats skis and boards with the help of a Wintersteiger Micro 91, restoring their functionality and refining their bottoms until they can slide over snow with powder-cutting grace.
