Dave & Jeff were awesome! I rented ski equipment for my daughter who was maybe going to ski a couple of days. Well after one day I called and said yes we want to keep them as she will ski another day at least. Jeff told me just keep them and we will charge you just for the days she... More

Half day fly fishing that was pure enjoyment. Very friendly atmosphere and they are great working with "newbies". My two sons and I have never been fly fishing before but the guide was very helpful and patient. We all had a blast and both boys caught 15" brown trouts. We also caught many rainbow trout. The views are awesome. Waders... More

They have a nice shop that’s fully stocked with everything you’d need, the people are friendly, and the rates are very competitive. Schuyler was my guide for the... More

All the staff were very helpful from getting our fishing license to helping our kids pick out sunglasses for the trip. Adam was our guide and he was fun, patient,... More

My 15 year old son was intrigued by all the fly fishermen on the Gallatine River. We happened on East Slope Outdoors by chance looking for directions to a new restaurant. We saw that they did guided fishing tours. My son and I signed up for a half-day fly fishing lesson. The staff was helpful and friendly. Our guide Adam... More

While vacationing in Big Sky this week we happened in to the East Slope Outdoors shop to look into fly fishing on the Gallatin River. Being complete novices, we had no idea what to expect and were apprehensive. Let me say that Dave and his entire staff made our family feel right at home. We have three boys who fired... More

Our family of eight spent a week in Big Sky in January and were extremely happy with the the staff, equipment, and prices we found at East Slope. The staff was extremely patient and thorough when assisting our 5 children ranging in age from 6 to 14 with equipment selection and fitting. They were very flexible and accomodating when our...

My brothers and I have been skiing/riding since the early 80's and have been to MANY ski shops all over. We were recently lucky enough to visit Big Sky for 8 days and with 5 of us we needed some rental gear, tune ups and boot adjustments. First off the staff here is totally amazing, they are literally there just... More

Like many other reviewers have stated, the customer service is outstanding. Second to none. The quality and selection of skis and boots cannot be matched. AND they have the best prices in the state. Dave, the owner, his lovely wife, and staff, all take the time to ensure you have the right fit for your boots, and also make sure... More
