Christy Sports LLC, an outdoor specialty retailer and service provider, has acquired the assets of Lone Mountain Sports, a premier ski and snowboard specialty retail and rental operator.

LMS is a family-owned and operated ski shop located slope-side at Big Sky Resort in Montana. The shop offers a selection of high-performance rental and demo equipment along with a full retail and repair business.

The deal is another in the Christy strategy of growth through targeted acquisitions. Going forward, the shop will operate at its current location but will transition to Christy Sports.

“We are excited to enter our fifth state, Montana, as part of our expansion strategy to best serve our guests and employees everywhere they ski and ride in the Rockies and beyond,” said Matt Gold CEO at Christy Sports LLC. “We will be laser focused to continue Lone Mountain Sports’ tradition of great specialty service while leveraging Christy’s scale and capabilities to deliver inspiring outdoor experiences for customers at Big Sky.”
