Snow has two positive uses: it can be used to build snow-jurors when neighbors don't show up to serve in a non-binding apartment court, and you can ski on it. Take a snowy recess with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of ski and snowboard gear and rentals at The Ski Bum, with locations in Newark, Delaware, and Glen Mills, Pennsylvania.
The Ski Bum's staff actuates more than 35 years of experience outfitting snow jockeys with equipment and apparel to accouter skiers and snowboarders with an expansive range of snow-shredding wares. The savvy staff helps with queries about gear, recommending items based on skill level, budget, and favorite outfit worn by a member of the Rat Pack. K2 Automatic lemon-lime ski poles ($39.95) keep skiers balanced on double-black-diamond slaloms, and women's Quiksilver sweaters ($49.50) supply sartorially striking après-ski attire. Ride Orion snowboard boots ($129.95) anchor feet to bindings, securely attaching riders to powder-gliding planks, and Burton Truckstop beanies ($13) keep noggins warm when emptying helmets of accumulated snow and snow-colored wigs. Those at lower altitudes can opt for an assortment of casual women's shirts or dresses and men's t-shirts, hoodies and more.
Seasonal rentals allow customers to rent gear, ranging from used junior shaped skis ($75) to new pairs of adult twin tipped skis ($210). Rentals extend from October to April, gearing up young'uns' growing feet for the season without necessitating splurging on new equipment, which, as science fiction has proven, is more likely to violently betray the human race or cause humans to wait in line for an inconveniently unreasonable amount of time.
