Ski & Snowboard, Tarpestry Style

Pack a Tarpestry on your next ski or snowboarding trip! It’s the perfect companion for all things wet, snowy, and gnarly.

When you get to the parking lot, it’s time to put on those snow pants and ski or snowboard boots. Lay a Rugged Tarpestry on the snowy ground for a dry boot change and gear up. No more hopping on one foot with the risk of the dreaded wet-sock!    

Pack a lightweight Mini Tarpestry in your backpack and hit the ski lift. Shred the gnar and pull the Mini out for your backwoods break time in the warming hut. Keep your ski bum dry.  When your day on the mountain is complete, pull out the Tarpestry once again for ski boot change.  Afterwards, lay it down in the back of the car – water-repellent side up!  This will protect your car from wet snow drips.

How to rock the holidays with Tarpestry

Baby, it’s cold outside! The fire is going in the fireplace and you’ve stashed your Tarpestry away to be ready for next camping season…  Wait, what? You don’t need to put your Tarpestry away for the winter!  Here are a few ideas for using your Tarpestry this holiday season:

Use your Classic Tarpestry for your Christmas tree skirt and wrap the base of your tree in style.  Not only will your presents be placed on beautiful fabric, but your hardwoods will be protected from water drips.

Take your Tarpestry on your next sledding adventure!  Park the Tarpestry at the top of the hill for breaks without wet bums. Plus, you can add your arsenal of snowballs to your Tarpestry and move them to the best firing locations.  The Rugged Style is best because it gives double the water-repellency!

Feeling a draft?  We know from experience that it is no fun to have a fire in the fireplace,only to feel a draft of cold air streaming in from a crack in the door or windows.  Brrrr!  We have very effectively used a Tarpestry to cover a window or door and reduce the cold air creep.  It really helps!

Other fun ways you can use your Tarpestry this holiday season include but certainly aren’t limited to:  seat around the outdoor bonfire, guest air mattress cover (a nice buffer from the cold air), cover for the firewood, firewood transport, buffer in the car for wet gear and so much more!

Make Someone Happy!

We have seen our share of elated faces over the years – pictures of people opening their brand new Tarpestry presents.  We agree! Tarpestry makes an excellent gift for anytime of the year but especially during the holiday seasons. That’s because anyone can use it, practically anywhere!  They can use their gift in the park for picnics, on the beach, at lawn concerts, and more.  

We have heard people say that the Tarpestry was their favorite gift over the holidays!  But shhh we aren’t supposed to tell anyone.  So let the snow fall, and let the smiles appear on your loved ones faces this Christmas when you all sit around the tree together and they open their Tarpestry.  So go on, make someone happy, and give them the gift of adventure!
