Vail Valley Locals Welcome the Opening of Christy Sports’ Newest Signature Store in Avon


LAKEWOOD, Colo. – November 17, 2014.  Christy Sports, today, announces the opening of its completely remodeled signature store in Avon.

Considering the ongoing nature of the current town center renewal project, Christy Sports is excited to announce the opening of its extensively remodeled full service ski and snowboard store at 182 Avon Rd, in Avon, Colorado.  For nearly 30 years, Christy Sports has been a trusted name within the closely knit ski and snowboard community of the Vail Valley.   With a 45% increase in space, this signature store has substantially larger departments as well as a naturally lit and open layout which allows customers to effortlessly find whatever they need.  While the additional space impacted every department, the rental division has seen the largest expansion.  Doubled in size, it provides an unprecedented selection of ski and snowboard test equipment, demos, and rental equipment for adults and juniors.

The remodeled store also houses exclusive retail offerings as well as a significant increase in selection across all departments, including Junior’s.  “We have the largest selection of kid’s apparel and equipment in the area so you can outfit your entire family out of one location, which is something that this Valley really needed. I’m also proud to say that we are the only Never Summer dealer and Fischer Vacuum Boot dealer in the area,” said Jeff Kenney, Avon Store Manager.  In addition to the expanded retail and rental offerings, the repair department will feature a new, fully automated Wintersteiger Discovery tuning machine which provides factory quality tunes.  This new machine is complimented by Christy Sports’ expert hand tuning techs, which ensure the quality and fast turnaround of equipment.

The current focus on improving the town center coincided well with Christy Sports’ desire to update a building they’ve been in since 1986.  “Our goal was to create a state-of-the-art store that truly represents the history, spirit, and vibrancy of the Vail Valley and to give residents and visitors an unparalleled experience of quality and customer service only Christy Sports can provide,” remarked Hugh O’Winter, Director of Real Estate for Christy Sports.
