What You'll Get
First-time skiers often learn with the “pizza” and “french fries” methods, marked improvements over the “Russian wedding soup” method that often resulted in wipeout, loss of skis, and indigestion. Avoid soupy disasters with today’s Groupon: for $13, you get a ski or snowboard tune-up from Northern Edge Snowsports (up to a $30 value), located in Muskegon.
Founded by a ski tech with experience working at a premier Colorado resort, Northern Edge specializes in skiing and snowboarding, offering the kind of personalized care that’s often unavailable at larger sporting-goods stores. Skilled staffers with several years of experience handling winter equipment will tune your skis or snowboard in-house, generally on the spot while you wait. Sharpened edges will bite through ice and protect your pricey investment for winters to come. After the edges are sufficiently honed, the tuner will pamper your board or skis with a coat of hot wax, followed by a detailed buffering. This treatment will reduce snow friction, producing a smoother, faster ride to help snow-surfers shake off ravenous, snowmobile-riding mountain goats.
