Awesome New Glade Pulsar Goggles

Awesome New Glade Pulsar Goggles

Your Urban Sherpas are often approached by product placement companies but most just don’t pass the sponsorship test.  This season is different we found a goggle everyone should wear. Above is Glades Pulsar Magnetic Rimless Goggle and with a price below $100 everyone can afford. Glades have a magnetic bond between lens and frame making on snow swapping of lenses a snap; with a lifetime warranty, free shipping, and returns there is so much to be gained.  Even better you can purchase directly from Glades.   

So check-em out using the code URBANSHERPA for 15% off purchase and is only being offered at Glade Goggles, Get ahead of the crowd—we did.

We’ve got exclusive dibs on Windham’s new express check-in feature

Working with our partners at Windham Mountain we have streamlined and automated rental check-in to save our posse time and frustration. Purchase a package with rental before noon the day prior to your trip to take advantage of our exclusive express check-in: your lift tickets, gear rentals, and any lesson vouchers will be waiting for you at a separate express counter in the rental area.

Your Urban Sherpa leader will confirm your express status when boarding the bus in the morning. Upon arrival at the mountain, you won’t have to stand in line at the computer terminals or wait for tickets, lesson, or rental chits. Walk right off the bus, proceed directly to the express counter at the rental area to collect your tickets, rentals, and lessons. Skip the lines, try on your boots, grab your board or skis, and head out to the mountain for first tracks or an early lesson.

Express check-in is only being offered at Windham Mountain, so get ahead of the crowd. Gather your posse and plan your trip early—it pays off!
