Unlike its cousin, shaved ice, snow can cause slippery driving conditions and only comes in one lackluster flavor: grape. Glide through snowdrifts with ease with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a 30-minute ski or snowboard race tune-up at Lahout’s Country Clothing and Ski Shop in Lincoln (up to a $45 value) that includes:
- Sharpened edges
- Fill-ins for minor gouges in the base of the ski or snowboard
- Hot-wax application for bottom of board or skis
- Scrape session to smooth out the wax<p>
Continuing in the tradition of their forebears who founded the shop in 1920, the wintery wayfarers at Lahout’s Country Clothing and Ski Shop pamper skis and snowboards and improve mountainside performance with expert race tune-up services. Ski sharpeners hone dull board or ski edges, allowing snow traversers to glide over banks, slice through flurries, or evenly divide sandwiches. Deft hands free ski or board bottoms of gouges and chips before coating the surface with hot wax and scraping away ragged edges. While skis and snowboards take their medicine, customers can browse the store’s spacious showroom packed with seasonal clothing, gear, and Santa repellent.
