About Mountain Sports

"Providing great gear and expert knowledge
for your outdoor adventures."

Come See Us

For 40 years, Mountain Sports has been providing its customers with the quality gear and knowledge they’ve come to expect. Our business has come a long way since its conception in 1972 as Southwest Canoe and Kayak. From a modest-sized metal building of 500 sq. ft., we rented and sold canoes, kayaks and camping gear. As the years passed and business grew, we expanded to meet the needs of our growing customer base.

Our second location received a new name, Southwest Canoe and Trail, to reflect our growing selection of a variety of outdoor products. In the late ‘70s, we broadened our selection to include ski equipment, clothing and accessories. By 1984, we had become Mountain Sports, and the name stuck with us through a major expansion and a move to our current location in 1987. In 1996, we launched mountainsports.com, which has allowed us to reach customers all over the country with all our full inventory of products and continues to grow as a major part of our business.

Though the business has changed a lot over the last 38 years, our dedication to offering the best gear and clothing at the best prices has never wavered. Our staff is superb, always offering expert advice and working closely with you to make sure you find exactly what you need. Our competitors have come and gone, but our commitment to our customers is what has enabled us to keep offering the best service around.
