I bought my t shirts and magnets from this store, and there were a lot of stores to choose from. It looked inviting and had more to look at. The prices were great and I took some great stuff home to Alabama with me. The clerk was very sweet.

Two of my sons, one 10 and one 14 both did the 3 climbs for $15 in the rock climbing gym. Neither has ever climbed before. They had a great time and we did as well just watching them. Connor was great with instruction and encouraging both boys while spotting them. We will definetly try climing again!

I had never been snowshoeing or cross country skiing and these guys were so helpful with advice on where to go and what to do and what gear to rent. Can't say enough nice things about the staff, good people. And the prices are good. They have a bargain basement that had some great buys on coats and shirts and... More

The innkeeper at StoneBrook Resorts recommended we come here for snowshoe rentals -- GREAT recommendation! We were visiting Estes Park from Colorado Springs and knew we wanted to snowshoe while in the area. The staff at Estes Park Mountain Shop were knowledgeable but also really approachable. The guy at the rental counter made appropriate recommendations and outfitted us to go... More

Thanks to Dave of the East Park Mountain Shop, I could experience a great climbing nearby Estes Park. A strongly suggested shop for those that need equipment and assistance for hiking (also backcountry), climbing and camping in the Rocky Mountains National Park. Margherita (Italy)

We decided that to make our trip to Estes Park a complete experience we needed to try our hand at fly-fishing, something we had never done before. We booked a 4 hr. trip on July 23 with Estes Park Mt. Shop and it turned out to be our favorite activity on the whole trip. Our check-in was seamless and quick... More

Took kids to do some indoor climbing. Staff was very helpful and friendly. They got everyone fitted with gear and were really good with encouraging them on climbing. Cost $15 for 3 climbs. Really fun for everyone. Would go again. The store looks well stocked...didn't really looked around it much.

We always stop here on our way into hike, climb, etc...they always have a good deal on something you are looking for. Tons of North Face, Marmot, and the likes. Good selection of hats and sunglasses. Really anything you need for the outdoors at very reasonable prices. Staff is friendly and helpful.

What happened to this place? The staff, especially the weekend crew and its female manager, no longer allow customers to browse without pouncing on them and aggressively trying to make sales. This once was a gem of a store. No longer.

EPMountainShop, Owner at Estes Park Mountain Shop, responded to this review

Sorry for the experience you had, that individual no longer works here, and was in fact, not a manager. We take our customer service very seriously and pressuring customers is definitely not what we're all about. We hope you come visit us again soon, we're sure you'll find it a pleasant experience. - Rob More
