Christy Sports Provides Discount Season Rental and Ski Passes for Eldora Mountain Resort

LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Aug. 11, 2008 – Christy Sports and Eldora Mountain Resort have teamed up to provide consumers with affordable children’s ski rentals and passes for the upcoming season.

With the Christy Sports Gear and Grow program, consumers can purchase a discounted package that includes a season-long ski rental and an unlimited season pass for $189. Upgrades are available including snowboards and performance ski packages. The program is currently in its 4th year and is available at three Christy Sport’s locations including Boulder, Fort Collins and Flat Iron stores. The Gear and Grow program is available to children ages 6 to 12 and is designed to make skiing more affordable by avoiding the need to purchase new equipment as they grow.

“While families are being squeezed by the rising cost of gas and food, we have teamed up with Eldora Mountain Resort to offer a great value on ski rentals and passes,” said Dan Fox, Front Range operations director at Christy Sports. “With Eldora located a short distance from Boulder and being known as a family resort, it is a natural partner for us to provide families with a great value this ski season.”

Consumers can walk into the three locations and take advantage of this starting today. All items will be available for pick up beginning Saturday, Sept. 20.

“We have partnered with Christy Sports because of their ability to provide quality goods and services at low prices,” said Rob Linde Director of Marketing at Eldora Mountain Resorts. “We know our customers will receive exceptional customer service as they purchase everything they will need for the upcoming season.”
