The life of a snowflake starts with delicate, atmospheric crystal formation and ends with sudden mangling beneath the snowboards of teenagers. Prepare to frolic in nature’s snowy beauty with today’s Groupon: for $26, you get a ski- or snowboard-tune-up package at Reno Mountain Sports (up to a $65 value), which includes:
- A ski or snowboard tune-up (up to a $45 value)
- A pair of Eurosocks (a $20 value)
In business for almost four decades, the skier-owned-and-operated Reno Mountain Sports keeps winter sports enthusiasts smoothly gliding with complete ski or snowboard tune-ups. During the tune-up, one of the shop’s skilled technicians removes scrapes, gouges, and passé Tweety Bird tattoos from favored planks with a minor base repair and stone grinding. An equipment doctor then bevels bases to deliver maximum control on the slopes, and sharpens edges to guarantee perfect slope-slicing capability. Finally, a base finish and generous application of hot wax keep each powder-rider whizzing down double black diamonds like a greased roller skate on ice. To sit atop such impeccably tuned equipment, Reno Mountain Sports outfits tootsies in a pair of sport-specific Eurosocks, which bestow wearers with toasty comfort, unmatched performance, and enough style to fit in at the swankiest yeti shindigs.
Reno Mountain Sports
When a shopper inquires about one of the many sporting goods at Reno Mountain Sports, it's unlikely they'll be met with an unsure response. That's because the store—which is nearing its fifth decade in business—boasts staffers who spend their free time paddling kayaks through lakes and piloting snowboards down freshly powdered mountainsides. Patrons can use the team's expertise to invest in new equipment from brands such as K2 and Jackson, or commission tune-ups of weathered and yeti-chewed gear at the onsite repair shop. A slew of rentals also awaits shoppers, who can opt to spend the day skimming across the water's surface in a kayak or carving paths in the snow with alpine skis.
