The winter blues settle in when people get sick of staying indoors, watching the same reruns, and knitting tiny mittens for their house centipedes. Get back to nature and out of that teeming lair of insects with today’s Groupon to Ski Haus in Cannonsburg and Wexford. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get a ski- or snowboard-binding repair or tune-up (a $25 value).
- For $20, you get $40 worth of winter-sports equipment and apparel.
Ski Haus readies snow traversers for icy plummets with clothing and gear from brand-name lines, while mending blades and boards in binding repair and tune-up services. Customers can secure their personal skis and boards with a binding repair, where a meticulous inspection and testing of binding ensures feet remain shackled in place during rides. A tune-up offers a choice of hand or machine sharpening that hones blades and levels the playing field when competing downhill or fleeing an aggressive pack of mountain goats as The Benny Hill Show theme plays in the background.
Alternatively, guests can bundle within the snug fibers of a The North Face Denali jacket ($99–$160) or a White Sierra winter fleece ($35), or don a pair of Smith Optics ski goggles ($30+) to protect eyes when skiing or chopping onions on the slopes.
