LAKEWOOD, COLORADO (October 11, 2022) – Christy Sports, the premier outdoor retailer helping people #stepoutside, is collaborating with family-friendly ski resorts to help more children get outdoors and enjoy winter sports.
Christy Kids Bundles include a full-season junior ski- or snowboard-gear rental package and a junior season pass to a partner resort for one low price. Bundles are available for Loveland Ski Area and Monarch Mountain in Colorado and Brighton Resort in Utah. Christy Kids Bundles are available for reservation now at ChristySports.com.
These partner resorts have teamed up with Christy Sports to provide discounted season passes and join the effort to reduce the costs of enjoying winter sports and get more kids outdoors. Only 24 percent of children in the United States get 60 minutes of physical activity a day as recommended by The World Health Organization. Even more concerning, the National Recreation and Parks Association notes children now spend less time outdoors than any previous generation, enjoying just seven minutes of unstructured play time each day. In addition to providing physical activity and crucial nutrients from the sun, time spent outdoors is proven to help children reduce stress, enhance their mood, creativity and imagination and increase focus and attention.
“Christy Sports is committed to making skiing, snowboarding and access to the outdoors more inclusive in the communities where we live and work,” said Randy England, Director of Brand Marketing at Christy Sports. “Collaborating with ski resorts that align with our mission allows us all to help reduce the cost of participating in winter snow sports. When we come together as an industry we can begin to make a difference and help kids share the stoke.”
Christy Kids Bundles were first introduced in 2016 in partnership with Loveland Ski Area and Monarch Mountain and have continued by popular demand with the addition of Brighton Resort as a partner in Utah. Bundles provide a season lift pass plus all the signature benefits of a season rental package with Christy Sports; rent once, enjoy all season with complimentary tuning, gear or size exchanges, expert service and store support at over 60 stores. Bundle prices vary by resort and are available to pick up at select locations across the Colorado Front Range and in Kimball Junction and Salt Lake City, Utah.
“We are very proud of our partnership with Christy Sports. Their commitment to customer service and making the slopes accessible for all is second to none,” said John Sellers, Marketing and Communications Director at Loveland Ski Area. “Our Kids Bundles provide families on the Front Range with affordable options to ski and snowboard at Loveland Ski Area all winter long, and we’re excited to offer these again for the 2022/23 season.”
