Braving ice and snow requires specialty equipment: snowshoes for walking, snow tires for driving, and flamethrowers for gently freeing pets from snowdrifts. Stock up on all manner of snow gear with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $75 worth of skiing and snowboarding equipment and apparel at Salter's Ski Shop in Eagleville. Today's deal is not valid for used merchandise.
The snow-sport experts at Salter's Ski Shop use more than 50 years of experience to custom-fit ski boots and carefully select high-quality products. To ensure that slope-bound glass slippers or ski boots fit snugly, the staff completes a complimentary evaluation of 39 specific lower-limb areas and asks a comprehensive list of questions about skiing habits. K2 skis and binding ($429+), a pair of adult ($399+) Völkl twin tips, or a snowboard ($199+) readily equip snow bunnies for twists and turns. The shop's handpicked selection of winter clothing outfits patrons in brands such as O'Neill and Sunice and preps kids for cold weather with cozy 686 parkas ($100+). Pull on a pair of gloves in one of four colors ($39) to protect hands from icy gusts, or outfit heads with an iPod-compatible helmet ($60+) to defend against surreptitious snowball or elevator-muzak attacks.
Salter's Ski Shop
At Salter's Ski Shop, the staff apply tenacity and meticulous planning to their boot fittings, collection of skis and snowboards, and tune-ups.
Salter's Ski Shop prides itself on thorough, precise boot fittings that help skiers and boarders control their balance both on the slopes and during limbo games. The staff takes dozens of measurements of each foot to determine the optimal fit. Snow-sport enthusiasts can peruse new boards from Morrow or skis from K2 and Goode, and bring in old equipment to the consignment shop, which donates proceeds to the National Ski Patrol. The shop also carries discounted lift tickets for nearby slopes, including Bear Creek, Jack Frost, and Blue Mountain.
