In 1958, two skiers decided they loved the sport so much, they would open up a ski shop on West Colfax Ave. Back in those days, Ed and Gale Crist spent their weekends rounding up their customers in a yellow bus to head for the ski slopes. Today, Christy Sports remains a company of skiers and riders who love to play. In the early 70's, we followed our hearts and opened stores at Copper Mountain and Vail. Being closer to the mountains meant we could be closer to the sport. The rest is pretty much history. Christy Sports now has over 40 locations throughout the Rocky Mountains. As a result, most of our employees are serious skiers and snowboarders who have a genuine desire to serve our customers.
After so many years in the ski business we know that there's no such thing as the "best equipment." There's only the equipment that's best for you. Choosing the right gear requires a great deal of experience and a great selection of product. At Christy Sports, you'll find both. As serious skiers and riders, we take your complete satisfaction personally. That's why you won't find a thing in our stores that we haven't put to the test ourselves. Don't you think skiers ought to be in the ski business' Come see what a difference it makes.
