Ski and Snowboard Checklist

Use our Ski and Snowboard Checklist before your next trip!

Being the ski and snowboard enthusiasts that we are, we like to be prepared before hitting the slopes.  This means having all of your gear present and accounted for.  Having the proper ski and snowboard apparel and accessories is important to your comfort and safety.  Mac’s Sports has put together a Ski and Snowboard Checklist of important ski and snowboard items any snow enthusiast does not want to be without.  The last thing you want is to realize you forgot a critical piece of gear or apparel, or your favorite accessory, on your next trip.   Use our ski and snowboard checklist to ensure you don’t forget anything.   Just print the Ski and Snowboard Checklist and use it while packing to make sure you don’t forget anything.

If you do find yourself short gear, head over to Mac’s Sports Clearwater and find out why we are Tampa Bay’s premiere dive, ski, and snowboard shop.  We carry the brands you want to keep you safe, comfortable, and dry this ski and snowboard season.  If we don’t see you at the shop, then we will see you on the slopes!

REAL REVIEWS from our clients

I learned to dive with Billy, he is a very good instructor. I recommend him to anyone wanting to learn scuba. He jokes around, tells stories and corrects small mistakes immediately. He is very good about calling/texting in order to keep in touch about dive trips. If you ever need anything he is there to help.read more

After a life long fascination with the ocean, I finally decided to get SCUBA certified. I did a little research trying to find the best place, probably just as you are doing now. I kept seeing 5 star reviews of Billy from the Tarpon Springs location, so I booked my classes. This was absolutely the best decision I have made in a long time. Billy was an outstanding instructor! He has been diving since he was little kid, and it shows. The wealth of knowledge he shares with you from all of his experiences is something to charish. He went above and beyond in making sure I understood everything that was being taught and that I was truely comfortable in the water. He is probably one of the most passionate, funny, and genuine people you will ever meet. Thank you for everything, Billy! Cheers, to a life long friendship and an awesome new hobby!read more

Super convenient location. I dive 3-4 times a month, so I'm in there 3-4 times a month. They always have what I need, and the one time a mistake was made, it was taken care of above and beyond.

I just complete my open water certification with Billy and it was great. The online portion was good but Billy does a better job at explaining and having stories that relate to what you need to know. I would recommend him as a trainer and the Tarpon Springs storie to anyone. I wear a larger wetsuit that is hard to find and Billy went above to help me find a suit that fit perfectly and it was a very good price! Thanks Billy!!read more
