Winter Park, CO (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
There's a new sports rental shop in town that offers a real difference. Epic Mountain Sports focuses on providing an epic rental experience to match that of the epic skiing and year-round sports activities in Grand County. The new shop is locally owned, caters to locals as much as tourists, offers brand new equipment and convenient online reservations, and is located in the Park Place Shopping Center in Winter Park next to the movie theatre.
"Skiing is an expensive sport that requires participants to sometimes suffer through cold temperatures and unforgiving wind. If their gear doesn't fit properly, they won't enjoy their experience, regardless if it's a perfect snow and weather day," explains Epic Mountain Sports owner, Katherine Mowrey. "After managing a local rental shop, I began to realize that there was a need that wasn't being met with the local shops. The location we selected became available and everything fell into place. Now, I offer benefits to customers that they can't get elsewhere in the valley."
The same principle applies to biking. If the bike and gear don't fit properly, the rider may sustain injuries. In order to enjoy the sports experience at the optimal level, proper fitting is a must and the customer care specialists will assist. In the spring, summer, and fall, Epic Mountain Sports keeps locals and tourists active with bike rentals, outdoor gear, and affordable athletic clothing, and miscellaneous sporting goods. The four-season rental and sports shop eliminates an unnecessary interruption in fun and a special trip to Denver.
Some stores claims they offer personalized service, however Epic Mountain Sports doesn't just say they do--they actually do. For example, customers can come in the day ahead and get fitted for their equipment and take it with them, without charge, that day to avoid the rush in the store or at the slopes. "If a boot or bike doesn't fit right, performance and comfort are sacrificed and that doesn't need to happen," adds Mowrey. To ensure an enjoyable experience, Epic Mountain Sports rents only top-quality, new gear and equipment. Plus, the staff takes the time to custom fit each person in the right boot. In case problems arise while the customer is out on the mountain, help is only a phone call away. Driven by making sure their customers are taken care of with a white-glove approach, an Epic Mountain Sports staff member will meet the customer onsite to assist.
Reservations can be made online to make your experience even easier and faster. Online reservations can be made at http://www.epicmountainsports.com and even offers savings of 20%.
Bring in your own equipment to Epic's in-house repair shop for tuning of bikes and skis or a fresh wax service. This TLC will keep your momentum going and professional staff will have you back on the mountain in a jiffy. If that weren't enough personalized service, Epic Mountain Sports takes it a step further: they offer delivery service. For locals and tourists alike, all appreciate time-saving and simplification gestures and this one takes the cake. Epic Mountain Sports also rents snowshoes and all the appropriate gear, including apparel and sells all the usual gear, too.
"We remember what it's like to be a first-time skier and boarder. We also like to travel and know what it's like to be a tourist in an unfamiliar place," explains Mowrey. With that in mind, customers learn about the locals' choices when it comes to trails, stores, restaurants, and the like. The staff at Epic Mountain Sports offers more than just gear rental--they also help their customers have a more enjoyable stay.
Stop in, say hi, and meet the friendly staff. While you're there check out the bright and inviting store. Epic Mountain Sports is locally owned and wants to make sure each guest is treated right. The store is conveniently located in Park Place Shopping Center in Winter Park, next to the movie theatre and is open daily from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
