Snowboards are like pet goats—neglect them, and they will leave you cold and hungry at the top of a mountain. Keep your mountaintop ride in good repair with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a complete snowboard or ski tune-up at The Skier's Sportshop (up to a $52.45 value, including tax), located on 109 Street Northwest.
The Skier's Sportshop furnishes its snow superstore with knowledgeable staff and top-quality ski and board equipment. The full-service tune-up begins with an inspection, where the top, base, psychological complexes, and edges of the board or skis are wiped clean of dirt, solvents, and excess wax. Base repair material fills in any nicks and gouges obtained while shielding feet from rough patches or BB-gun-armed enemies, and then a stone grinder flattens bases, allowing for better wax absorption and increasing gliding ability to flying-squirrel-like levels. Edge grinding creates a continuous smooth surface, and hot wax impregnates the base, which protects against damage and improves turning properties. Check out the top-brand-stocked store for additional gear to outfit your skis or board.
