Come Forth on the Fourth

Unless you’re the most hardened of diehard skiers, the weather is perfect. And even then it’s pretty darn good.

And Avie’s Ski / Sport is OPEN from 10AM until 5:00PM on July 4th so that you can be sure to pack in as much fun in the sun as is possible while the getting is good.

An expanse of paddle boards. A sea of surf boards. An acre of sun glasses. A — place your own witticism here — of sandals and other summer fun gear.

Don’t let the 4th of July slip by as just another day wishing you were having outside having a blast. Avie’s has what you need to go from blah to gaga. And you can get in on the 4th of July.

So on the fourth come forth and start summer. Don’t wait until too late.

 

What’SUP?

You are if you are standing atop a new Stand Up Paddle Board that you picked up at Avie’s Ski / Sport. New paddle boards are in stock and ready for you to take out for a spin. Avie’s has a nice selection of lengths and styles, and can help fit you to one to match your abilities whether a first-time SUPer or a super SUPer ready to paddle out into the surf.

Individual boards and paddles, or SUP packages await your perusal at Avies. Paddle boarding builds upper torso strength, and greatly enhances your balancing abilities. And yes, both will be very useful, especially the balance part, when you get back onto the slopes this coming winter.

And as an extra bonus, there is NO SALES TAX on paddle boards in Rhode Island. That’s a 7% savings from buying in a nearby state, without even trying!

We Are Back!!

Ok, technically we didn’t go anywhere. But we are back. On Sundays. Open noon to 5:00 PM for your shopping pleasure.

If you haven’t been into Avie’s in a few weeks, put it on your “bucket list” for the month of May. What a change! You wouldn’t know it was a ski shop. Well you would if you walk into the upper level, but if you don’t go there it will be pure summer fun above and below the water.

Lots of stand up paddle boards, as well as skim boards, surf boards, and boards you won’t even know what to do with. But you won’t be bored.

Tons of sandals. And racks of uber-cool sunglasses just waiting to be perched on your nose, saving your retinas from those nasty infra-alpha-red-beta-gamma rays. 

Need some early summer adventure? Browse the new wet suits, swim fins and face masks adorning “I’m not a ski shop now” walls. Suit up and dive in! Grab one of the many spearguns and bring home dinner. 

Avie’s is brimming over with good cheer and new “stuff.” Stop in and pick up what you need—on Sunday even—for your next, or maybe your first, adventure of the summer. 

Change Over Time

While there are still some pockets of snow to play in at Killington and a few other spots in northern New England, it really is time to plunge into and enjoy the change to warmth. And with that change comes chaos at Avie’s Ski / Sport as gear for summer and winter get swapped about the store. Despite the chaos, it’s a good time to pop in and see what’s up. …more
