SUMMER STORAGE WAXING
Your skis and boards crushed it this season! Snowy Range Ski Resort will be closing Sunday, April 7th. If you plan on moving right into your Spring sports and storing away your powder gear make sure you bring them in to get freshly waxed before you store them for the summer.
If waxed properly before summer storage, your skis and boards will thank you come next season. Waxing prevents the bases from drying out, rust from building up, and is a good habit to get into if you want your gear to last.
Our shop prices can be found on our website, here. Summer waxing for Nordic skis begins at $15 and for Alpine skis and boards $25. This is also a good time to get any core shots or damage that occurred during the 2018-2019 season fixed. Prices for in-depth repair will vary on the severity of the required services.
*also note that all Basecamp Ski Rentals are due back May 31st. Any outstanding rentals will be charged $5 per day they are late.
Saturday, April 20th -- FIRST AID KIT NIGHT
Have a First Aid kit in the house? Lost your kit on a paddle trip? Think you saw a kit in the trunk of your car? Live on the wild side and don't have a First Aid kit?
We are hosting a First Aid Kit Night in hopes that everyone stays safe and travels prepared!

Saturday, April 27th -- GEAR REPAIR WORKSHOP
Once you've found your favorite backpack or rain layer, it is hard to part with it when it finally busts a buckle or zipper...but what if you didn't have to? Join us from 1 to 5 pm on Saturday, April 27th to see if our staff can help mend your gear. We are not magicians but we will do our absolute best to see that you and your gear walk out our doors ready for your next adventure.
We'll have sewing machines, repair tape, buckles, straps and everything to fix gear. Simply stop on by with your broken gear and we'll help breath some new life into it. Let's work together to keep gently used or repairable gear out of our landfills...reduce, reuse, recycle, repair!!!
We look forward to seeing you next month. Be aware we are reducing our store hours during the month of April-- we will be closed Monday's and our weekday hours will be from 10 am to 6 pm.
