There’s no reason to wait until Memorial Day Weekend to get your paddle on! All our new 2018 Kayaks and Stand-up PaddleBoards are in stock now, and we’re offering a sweet deal! Check out this summer’s line-up of kayaks  from Feelfree, Ocean Kayak, Hurricane, Liquidlogic, Native, Aquaglide and Emotion. Our SUP selection includes SurfTec, Amundson, Aguaglide, Fun4All. We have a great selection of singles, doubles, sit-on-tops, sit-insides, inflatables, fishing kayaks, pedal kayaks – we even have kid’s boats & boards!  The weather is perfect for that paddling trip you’ve been needing and SNAC Arnold is here to help you get your paddling season started!

Kids Love Disc Golf!

If you’re looking for something to do with the kids – why not play a round of disc golf? Calaveras County has several 18 hole Disc Golf courses that are free! Feeney Park behind Michelson School in Murphys is a great place to start. If you want to play in the woods on a little steeper terrain, check out White Pines Disc Golf. The course is across the lake from the beach and you can start by the ball field. The newest course is Plug Ugly in San Andreas. The local artwork on the tone poles makes it worth the drive! SNAC Arnold and Murphys can give you maps to these courses. If you’re down in Valley Springs, you’d need to pay an entrance fee to Hogan Reservoir, but you’d get two 18 hole courses! Over on the Tuolumne side, the newest course is at the Twain Harte Golf Course. It’s beautifully maintained and you play alongside the 9 hole regular golf course, with two baskets per regular golf hole. It’s $10 Fri-Sun and $7 on the weekdays – but worth it!

What are you waiting for? Start ’em young! Play on!

The Spring Switchover at SNAC Arnold, Sonora & Murphys

This has been the fastest switchover in SNAC History.  Bear Valley closed 4/22/18 for the season (better late than never, Mother Nature) while SNAC staffers received mountains of product to send to Murphys and Sonora. On closing day SNAC Arnold rented skis, boards and kayaks! Now that all the winter equipment is stashed – the Kayak & SUP Showroom is getting it’s finishing touches. Just a couple more deliveries left and we’ll have the best paddling department in our neck of the woods! Stop by SNAC Sonora to see the backpack lineup, grab some climbing gear, or for any of your more technical needs. Head to SNAC Murphys to see what the lifestyle lines of our outdoor brands have to offer. They’re stocked up with apparel and footwear that fits on the trail, on vacation, and even at work.

Help a SNACer & Win a Kayak!

Many of you know Lew from his time in the Military, as a Boy Scout Leader, or from Search & Rescue. He’s spent his life in service, and now the community is rallying around him and his family. SNAC Arnold is donating a Kayak so to help raise funds for COTA, so that little Jace can have the transplant and all the care he needs. If you want to donate direct to COTA, do that via their website. If you want to donate via the raffle, come into SNAC Arnold or mail a check to SNAC Arnold, Box 1027, Arnold, CA 95223. Note, due to COTA Fundraising guidelines, SNAC is only able to collect cash and checks (made payable to COTA for Baby Jace). Mark your calendar for the Sun. 9/10/17 event – where the winning ticket will be drawn. Thanks for caring & see you there!

Escape into the High Country!

Summer’s not over yet and there’s still some high country adventure to be found. If you haven’t done that hiking or paddling trip yet, now’s your chance! Head for the mountains to escape the heat and see the last bit of wildflowers or finally try stand-up paddleboarding! Stop by SNAC Sonora for the best selection of rock climbing and backpacking gear. If you’re on your way to Ebbett’s Pass, swing into SNAC Arnold for kayak, canoe and SUP rentals. And if you find yourself in downtown, SNAC Murphys has apparel & footwear for your next wine tasting adventure! Cheers to Summer 2017!
