Celebrating Years of Culture, Commitment and Camaraderie Jerome Grady, founder of Colorado Ski & Golf, could tell you tales of CSG’s early days that would make you laugh, cry and howl in disbelief. His anthology of humorous anecdotes, touching stories and proud achievements paved the way for what was and is Colorado’s favorite ski and golf outfitter.
Much more than just the Nation’s Lowest Prices and 100% Performance Guarantees, CSG is built upon a set of intangibles that, from its inception, have shaped the way we do business. Fun, family, friends, kindness, generosity, enthusiasm and unrivaled knowledge are the hallmarks of customer service, perhaps more aptly named building lifelong relationships, at CSG – values that were inherent when Grady assembled his staff and opened CSG’s first store in 1983.
What began as one store, launched on a shoestring budget and featuring used gear from regional resorts, today represents the finest experience in gear selection for skiers and golfers statewide – an experience that can be largely attributed to the people who defined and continue to express the sense of loyalty, dedication and consideration that comprise CSG’s unshakeable culture. Bought in 1994 by the Garts, Colorado’s premier outdoor retailers, CSG has further grown to reflect their family history of talent, accomplishment and commitment to excellence, and now includes four convenient locations and recognition as a household name throughout Colorado’s Front Range.
In April 2010, Vail Resorts acquired the remaining interest in SSV. As part of that transition, the corporate office relocated to the Vail Resorts’ corporate office in Broomfield, CO. The Vail Resorts family of companies is the premier mountain resort company in the world and a leader in luxury destination-based travel at iconic locations. We are a world-class collection of mountain resort, hospitality, real estate, retail and transportation companies operating in the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic.
