Like childhood love letters to the tooth fairy, snow-covered mountains should be shredded. Grind away with this Groupon.
$25 for a Snowboard Tune-Up ($50 Value)
On the first visit, snowboards get a full tune-up, including a base grind, edge sharpening, small p-tex fill, and iron wax. A few days before the board’s first use of the season, owners can bring it back in for a follow-up scrape.
Royal Board Shop
Royal Board Shop outfits board-sport athletes with equipment and apparel from top brands such as The North Face, Volcom, and Bataleon. Snowboarders can pick up a new deck for a winter full of half-pipes and aerial flips, and skateboarders can purchase a set of replacement wheels should they ever go outside to find their favourite board sitting on a cinder block. The rider-owned, rider-operated shop complements its extensive inventory with a full range of tech-shop services for both snowboards and skis, including tune-ups, hot waxes, and base repairs.
