Christy Sports in the East Village
Christy’s is a Rocky Mountain favorite among locals, for their excellent customer service and many other services they offer. Whether it is Retail, Rental or the need to get a fresh wax and tune on your favorite pair of skis, Christy’s will guarantee you walking away satisfied. Christy Sports has it all. If you are looking to try out some skis before you buy, then Christy Sports is the way to go. Every ski on the wall for sale can be tried out before you buy. With almost every size of every ski on the wall for sale, Christy’s provide their customers the options to try before you buy can be rented as a demo package. I have found that the tuning rates at Christy’s sports are probably the best in Copper Mountain.

The Cage (Woodward)
The Cage is the only place in Copper Village where anyone can go to hang out, watch a ski film, play some ping-pong, or skate the indoor mini ramp. The Cage supports many local Colorado brands and has a strong influence of the freeski and snowboard community. It is the perfect place for kids to hang out while the parents are busy shopping. If making Go Pro edits, The Cage has you covered with a full area of free access to Final Cut Pro editing studio and many more editing programs. The Vibe is right, and so are the many great brands that are represented from the Rocky Mountains. Kevin is the local “Cage Guy” who is always eager and happy to help with anything shred related. In the summer time campers from Camp Woodward usually hang out and make use of the free Internet, TV’s, ping-pong and skateboarding. This place has a vibe you will not find anywhere else.
