As a new ski season begins there is so much excitement and anticipation. As locals, we count down the days until the local mountains start opening. For most people, they are checking the weather forecast or marking their calendars for that first day off they can head for the hills and take their first turns of the season.

In all the excitement, it’s important to take the time and make sure you and your equipment are ready to charge the mountain, full force, when that day comes. Nothing ruins a first day on the mountain like getting to the base of the lift and realizing you still have your summer storage wax on your skis or board…. Or those ski pants that “still have one more year in them” soak through on the first chair lift ride of the day, that’s if they even still fit. It’s also important to make sure you, physically, are ready for a day of sliding on snow. It takes a few more muscles to ski down a black mogul run than sitting on the couch watching the Broncos and eating chips, just sayin’. Speaking from experience, it’s a lot more fun (and easier on the wallet) spending some time, during this waiting period, getting those muscles and joints strong and stable, and skiing all season long, than getting hurt in November and missing the whole season, trying to recover.

The time is now! Pull out those ski, try on your gear, go to the gym, and make sure you and your gear are set up for success. If not, our tune shop is cranked up, and we’ve got GREAT DEALS (up to 70% OFF) on last year’s gear and 20% OFF all 2016 winter outerwear to get you set up from head to toe!

Come say hi!
