SNAC is kicking off the Winter Season of 2019/20 with the First Annual Winter Film Fest on Friday 11/8 at 7p (doors open at 6:30p) at the Murphys Creek Theatre in downtown Murphys. We’ll show several short ski and snowboarding films. Our guys hit up all our vendors for the best prizes, so get your tickets in advance at any SNAC location for an extra raffle ticket! Need a snowboard, snowskate, skateboard, boots, bindings, pack, or other amazing schwag? No problem, we have a ton of cool prizes. Profits benefit the Nickolay Dodov Foundation (teaching avalanche safety) and the Murphys Creek Theatre (bringing the community plays and special events).

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!

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!

SNAC Arnold has Everything for Snowplay!

There hasn’t been a better season for snowplay than this one! SNAC Arnold has just restocked and is ready for Spring Break. If you need kid’s or adults snow boots, look no further! We have gloves and warm clothing for your trip to the snow. Add a coaster, a toboggan and Sno-Park Permit, and head up to the snow! We have you covered!
