The earliest ski lifts merely stranded riders atop a picturesque mountain, from which they couldn't escape until the invention of gravity. Take advantage of the lift's natural beauty with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a one-day ski, boot, and pole rental at Park's Sportsman (a $29.99 value), in Orem.
The massive sporting-goods storehouse Park's Sportsman hosts one of the largest selections of rental ski equipment in Utah County. Snow jockeys snap into skis by brands including Atomic, Rossignol, and Salomon, all of which are available in junior and adult sizes. Atomic- and Nordica-brand boots bind feet to their snowy chariots, while the included set of poles keeps skiers upright and armed against fencing elks. Slalomers can pick up their full set of gear as early as 3 p.m. the day before their rental, and drop it off at 9 p.m. after a full sun-cycle of mountain carving. Park's Sportsman also sells a full range of other ski and sporting products from brands such as The North Face, High Sierra, Nike, and CamelBak.
