Skiing down a mountain, like putting out a campfire or tucking in a sleepy yeti, is easier when you have a blanket of snow handy. Tuck into powdery slopes with today’s Groupon to Sun and Ski Sports. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get a ski tune-up (a $40 value).
- For $20, you get $40 worth of ski gear and apparel.<p>
The certified ski techs at Sun and Ski Sports restore spunk to worn snow gliders while outfitting patrons for the slopes with a full range of brand-name ski equipment and apparel. A yearly wax and tune-up preps powder gliders for slippery mountain terrain and midnight heists at a flour mill; professionals stone-grind skis and bevel edges for smooth turns and swift trail runs.
The sports shop’s rooms overflow with ski gear and apparel from top brands, keeping mountaineers cozy with Thermotech ski socks ($16.99) that wick away moisture and Anon Helix goggles ($49.95) that shield eyes from a sun trying to whittle down 20/20 vision of pristine mountain landscapes. Snow sliders can opt to purchase their own skiing supplies, investing in K2 3-speed ski poles ($49.99) and Alpina cross-country ski boots ($74.99) that level the playing field during slalom competitions against mountain-goat herds.
Sun & Ski Sports
Since its founding in 1980, Sun & Ski Sports has remained true to its philosophy: “do a few things, but do them better than anybody else.” The shop stocks equipment in five categories of extreme and outdoor activities, including camping, skating, running, bicycling, and water and snow sports. It specializes in these to ensure its merchandise maintains a high standard of quality, and its employees are knowledgeable participants in the sports their department represents.
Bikers can drop off their steeds for tune-ups from certified mechanics who put all brands through the rigors of a 12-point inspection, checking chains and adjusting wobbly pedals and malfunctioning spoke-card motors. While waiting, curious eyes might linger on a North Face two-person tent, a Blackburn Airtower bicycle pump, or a vast selection of shoes from brands such as New Balance and Asics. Men and women can traipse nearly barefoot in the park with Vibram FiveFingers, which offer minimal structural encumbrances for a more natural stride, or cast their feet aside for the new-wheeled prowess that comes with a Fuji SL-1 LE Ultegra performance road bike.
