I’ve been mentioning some of our long-time ad partners recently, and the part they play in supporting local journalism. Many of our favorite local businesses are facing a big challenge right now and there’s no better time than now to show our support for them.

I just received the following message from our friends at Christy Sports.

“Christy Sports has been hit hard by the effects of Covid-19, but we know there are already many worse off and it is important for us to do our part. Through this Thursday, March 26, Christy Sports will be blowing out all our winter inventory and giving 10 percent of all sales to local COVID-19 relief in our community. So, the more gear you buy, the more you will save and the more we can donate to those who really need it!

We strongly believe now is the time to come together not only as skiers and riders, but communities to get through these challenging times. Thank you for your support.”

This is a great deal all around—for skiers, boarders, and especially those who really need some help from friends in these uncertain times.
