Christy Sports, a premier ski and snowboard specialist in the Rocky Mountain region continues to expand its worldwide presence. Last year, the company partnered with Skiset, Europe’s largest ski and snowboard rental network. This partnership brings together the two largest rental networks in North America and Europe, ensuring quality and service at virtually every ski destination. Christy Sports is now able to provide one convenient source for all your ski and snowboard rentals worldwide.
Summer doesn’t provide much down time for Gordon Wade, Director of Internet Commerce at Christy Sports. He has spent the off season travelling to potential affiliate shops ensuring the continued the growth of the Christy Sports Rental Network. “We are never content with the status quo,” Mr. Wade reflects, “because we always want to improve our network by adding more destinations. Customer satisfaction is our goal, and we will continue to offer the best shops in the most desirable locations through one booking source.” Although the affiliate network is already the largest in North America, Christy Sports strives to continue the upward trajectory. Mr. Wade found 15 potential shops on his latest trip, which solidifies the rental network presence in the East Coast.
Christy Sports has been a leading innovator in the rental industry for the last 13 years. They offer over 40 retail and rental stores as well as a Door 2 Door delivery service in specific mountain locations which brings the traditional rental shop directly to the customer’s front door. Christy Sports has actively cultivated a network of rental affiliates which adhere to the same high standards of quality and service that they hold their own shops to. Not every rental shop meets the high standards required for participation in the network. “Christy Sports has earned a strong reputation because we are committed to providing exceptional customer service. We are comfortable sending any of our loyal customers to our rental affiliates because we visit each of the potential affiliate shops and choose only the rental shops that can provide comparable equipment and service,” stated Mr. Wade. “We are constantly striving to make the retail and rental process as easy as possible.” This single site for locating and reserving rentals has filled a need in the ski industry. Customers have been excited about the prospect of a destination ski vacation without the added hassle of shipping their equipment or waiting in long lines to fill out paperwork. This online network from Christy Sports is ideal for families, friends, and ski groups who want to experience new resorts without venturing away from world class service.
The affiliate network allows people to find a pre-qualified rental shop virtually anywhere they want to ski or ride by going to one central location.

By booking more than 24 hours in advance, customers can receive 10-20%off of rentals, depending on affiliate store, or Christy Sports location.
