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 for winter-sports apparel and services at Sun Valley Sports. Choose from the following options:

Sun Valley Sports outfits snow thrashers with top industry apparel and preserves winter gear with thorough maintenance services. Combat the icy caress of Old Man Winter and the brain-freezing antics of his lesser-known relative Slushee Steve with warm name-brand trappings such as a North Face Ski Tuke III hat ($30) or an Under Armor Tech L/S tee ($24.99). Groupon holders can opt to use the deal toward equipment, such as a Burton TWC snowboard ($299.95), or to musicalize downhill jaunts with a pair of Skullcandy Smokin’ Buds earphones ($29.99).
Powder gliders in need of a refurbishing can undergo the complete ski or snowboard stone-grind tune-up, a comprehensive service that begins with a cleaning and sanding of all surface areas. Next, edges are sharpened to prepare equipment for the stone-grind session, which carves minute lines into undersides to reduce surface drag, bolster directional glide, and increase the precision of trendy tribal tattoos left behind in the snow.
