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... More

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

I was looking to fish big sky for the first time. Some shops were aloof, others over priced, ESO were none that of that. Put me on the fish, great guide technically and personally. Helped me without pressure but with confidence grab some gear I needed. These are THE guys I will go to when I'm looking to fly fish... 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

We recently visited Big Sky. As beginner skiers, we happened into East slope to inquire about renting skis there vs. at the resort. Instantly I realized that this is a unique store. The staff are perhaps the friendliest, most knowledgable of any outdoor store that I have shopped in. The owner, Dave, was fantastic. They outfitted us all for a... More

I would give ESO a SIX button rating if I could. Consistent superb service. This place gives kind of service I would provide if I could. Dave has moved his shop up to the Meadows and now has a larger, full of goodies, location. True to form Spencer tuned in to my needs/wants and set me up with skis. These... More

We just returned from a family trip to Big Sky and the folks at East Slope Outdoors were so helpful I had to write a review (1st time). We're novices, and on our first day we rented boots and skis at the resort. We had a few problems with the equipment, including uncomfortable boots for 2 of us. A friend... More

Our family has been renting skis from ESO for the past five years. After our first experience at ESO we decided to purchase ski boots from ESO. Love them! Dave and his team provide top notch service, equipment and now have expanded retail space that is down right awesome. We have also gone on a fly fishing outing with Spencer... More
