Like a wedding cake, snow is beautiful, multilayered, and moist, but it has no value until someone walks on it or uses it to build a snowman. Give snow a reason to exist with today's Groupon, which gets you a wintry excursion courtesy of TAO The Adventure Outfitters downtown. Choose between these options:
- For $20, you get a one-hour cross-country ski lesson (a $40 value).
- For $15, you get a two-day snowshoe rental with retractable poles (a $42 value).
TAO's cornucopia overflows with a bounty of outdoor apparel and equipment for camping, canoeing, kayaking, and skiing. Lace up your favorite pair of skis and spend 60 minutes soaking in the knowledge of cross-country skiing—beginner's classes teach budding powdersporters the basic manoeuvres, and more advanced sessions are available to help experienced skiers hone existing skills and learn about the latest styles in trans-national snow travel. If skis don't agree with your feet, you can choose to float on frozen water for two days while safely held above snow by a pair of weight-distributing shoes.
Though outdoor activities offered by The Adventure Outfitters have yet to be reviewed, five Yelpers give the equipment selection an average of 4.5 stars:
- If you are into the outdoors, this is the place for you. – Shawna D.
