Some skiers prefer to leisurely slalom down the mountain, others enjoy racing to the bottom, while a small but vocal third contingent attempts to blast uphill using homemade jetpacks. Make sure you're well stocked for both up and downhill excursions with today's Groupon: for $20, you choose between a ski tune-up (a $40 value) or $40 toward gear and apparel at Ski Stop, located in Plainview.
Ski Stop proffers the latest in snow-slicing technology, with professional in-shop services and top-flight gear. Prep your skis for mountain season with a thorough tune-up, which delights snow gliders with an indulgent stone grind, bevel, and hot wax treatment before whispering inspirational quotes in their ears and sending them back to the slopes. Lift loafers can peruse skis, boots, bindings, and poles in the pro shop, or complete a pre-existing mountain-defeating arsenal with protective wear like GoreTex-laced gloves ($64.95) or ear warmers ($30). Newer skiers can count on Ski Stop's friendly, helpful service to pair them with appropriate equipment.
