You just moved to a place that finally has some elevation and you’ve had one of the most exciting summers of your life exploring the Rockies. Yet, with every passing day, you hear more about the approaching legendary winter. Between ski sale events and season pass promos, for the first time in your life, you’re starting to use “excited” and “winter” in the same sentence. You simply can’t wait to see if all the hype surrounding skiing and snowboarding in the Rockies is worth believing.
However, the move out here wasn’t cheap and you’re starting to notice lift ticket prices. The price of an individual ticket makes you cringe. You also have the option to spend big all at once on a season pass (choose this option, trust me). After doing the math, purchasing new equipment might be difficult. On top of the cost, you’re not sure whether skiing or snowboarding is your true calling, and you don’t want to make a long-term commitment to either without trying them first. What to do?
Have you considered a season ski or snowboard rental from Christy Sports?
All it takes is a visit to your nearest Front Range Christy Sports to get fitted with the proper equipment for your ability level. From there, take the equipment with you…for the WHOLE season! The convenience doesn’t stop there. If you have an issue with any of your equipment, whether it is the fit of your boots, a ski pole that didn’t make it into the car or a malfunctioning ratchet on your snowboard binding, Christy’s has you covered. They have over 40 locations across Colorado and Utah, so no matter where you’re skiing or riding; when a problem arises, an expert technician is there to fix it.
Here’s another advantage to renting gear for the season. Say that you grab skis in September, and by mid-December you’ve already put some serious mileage on the sticks. Drop into a Christy Sports and get your ski rental gear tuned at no charge! Getting ski wax on your landlord’s carpet is probably not on your to-do list, which is why the friendly and experienced staff at any Christy Sports location is happy to get your rental equipment mountain-ready again.
Let’s look at another scenario. You select a pair of skis in September, but by mid-December, you’re bored of the pizza/French fry routine and you want to stand sideways instead. Do it! With a season rental from Christy Sports, you can swap out skis for a board, or vice versa, whenever you like. They say that variety is the spice of life, so why limit yourself to just one method of cruising the slopes?
Remember how I said to splurge and buy the season pass, even though you still need equipment? You can afford it, and here’s why: a season rental package starts at just $159 for an adult and $99 for a junior! That’s everything you need: boots, bindings, poles and a pair of skis or a snowboard. It’s yours from the day you pick it up until April 14, 2016. Not to mention you can switch between skis and a board as many times your heart desires, and Christy Sports even provides a free mid-season tune for your rental gear. Sound too good to be true? It’s not; this is the real deal. Everyone else reading this is thinking the same thing, which is why you need to hurry in and pick up your ski rental or snowboard rental for the season. The absolute last day to rent is November 22nd, but why wait when you can have your pick of the best gear available starting on September 25th?
If you thought summer in the Rockies was fun, just wait until the snow starts to pile up! Any negative feelings you have about winter will be replaced with happy thoughts of slashing powder during the day and learning the true meaning of après at night.
Rent once and ski or ride all season long with a season ski or snowboard rental package from your nearest Front Range Christy Sports. See you in the rental shop on September 25th!
