Christy Sports and Skiset Form Largest Worldwide Ski and Snowboard Rental Network

Christy Sports, a ski and snowboard retailer in the Rocky Mountain region, has partnered with Skiset, a European ski and snowboard rental network, to form the largest worldwide ski and snowboard rental network with 800 rental and demo shops in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The combined North American network will be managed by Christy Sports.

“Both companies share a common vision of the ski and snowboard rental business, anchored on quality equipment, outstanding customer service, conveniently located shops, and attractive prices,” said Patrick O’Winter, CEO of Christy Sports. “Christy Sports and Skiset will continue exploring additional synergies, leveraging the partnership to increase global business with lodging and travel partners as well as equipment purchases.”

O’Winter anticipates to develop the network to as many as 200 store fronts in North America.

“By establishing this rental network, our customers are able to access quality ski rental packages practically anywhere they want to ski or snowboard, using one booking source,” said Gordon Wade, director of Internet commerce at Christy Sports. “North American customers can book European ski and snowboard rentals through Christy Sports, with fulfillment by Skiset. Conversely, European customers booking with Skiset for the U.S. and Canada are fulfilled by the Christy Sports Rental Network.”
