SNAC Celebrates 25 Years!

We figured the best way to say Thank You to our amazing customers is to have a Sale. Not just a weekend, but for twenty-five days! You’ve been with us through good winters & bad! You’re locals, second home owners, travelers and neighbors who’ve become friends. We wouldn’t still be here, if it weren’t for you!


Shawn & Jill & the SNAC Gang

The Lakes are Calling…

With all the snowpack melting, the High Alpine Lakes are brimming so it’s time to launch your canoe, kayak or SUP! If you don’t have one, just head up to SNAC Arnold and we’ll set you up. We just kicked into to our extended hours, so we’ll be here for you! SNAC Arnold is open daily 9a-6p, but on Friday and Saturday, we’re here until 7p. Please note that outgoing rentals end half an hour before the store closes. So, bust out that calendar and start planning your next canoe camping trip!

SNAC Arnold’s Biggest Sales Event is this Weekend!

Be ready when summer arrives! SNAC Arnold has great deals this weekend on New Kayaks & SUPs! If your family needs a double sit-on-top, look no further!

Let us help outfit you for your next paddling adventure!

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.
