Crested Butte, Colo. – Christy Sports, a specialty retailer in the Rocky Mountains, has reopened its Crested Butte store in a new location. Conveniently located at the base of Crested Butte Mountain Resort next to the ticketing office, the new store has been enhanced by recessed lighting and updated fixtures providing an enhanced shopping experience for customers.
“The decision to move the store was to provide our customers an updated and modern shopping experience,” said Adam Olmstead, Store Manager. “I am confident the new store will enable our customers to more easily browse a wide selection of ski and board equipment, outerwear and accessories.”
In addition to serving rental and retail customers, the new store will also be the base of operation for Door 2 Door (D2D), Christy Sports’ ski and snowboard rental delivery service which is being introduced to Crested Butte for the upcoming season. D2D offers customers the convenience of ski and snowboard rental delivery right to their front door, offering an alternative to the traditional experience of visiting a store location.
Unlike other ski and snowboard rental delivery services, D2D in Crested Butte will be supported by three brick and mortar locations: Christy Sports and Flatiron Sports, both located at the base of Crested Butte Mountain Resort; and The Alpineer, located in downtown Crested Butte. “If our D2D customers need additional services, they can come into any of our three locations to receive assistance,” said PJ Hildebrandt, Christy Sports Crested Butte Regional Manager. “I’m proud to say we are the only delivery service in Crested Butte with that kind of support network.”
“I’m thrilled to bring D2D to Crested Butte,” said Ben Saari, President of Door 2 Door. “Our services are perfect for renters, including families, who don’t want to deal with the stress of getting their rental equipment from a store but still want to receive expert fitting and quality gear.”
D2D will be available to customers in Crested Butte starting December 16, 2016. Online reservations can be made at www.d2dskis.com. D2D services over 20 resorts throughout Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho. More information can be found at www.d2dskis.com.
The new Crested Butte store is located at 620 Gothic Road, Suite 150 and can be reached at 970-349-6601.
