Great experience and amazing selection. The place is enormous and has a mix of name brands and knock offs that are all over the map in pricing. With the expert assistance of... More

Since I'm now a resident of Estes, I spend a lot of time down @ what we affectionately call "The Mountain Shop" All the employees are extremely knowledgeable and on their days off, you will see them out on the trails skiing, hiking, ice climbing, rock climbing, mountain biking, etc. They take great pride in customer service with a huge...

Our snowshoe trip with Mike Caldwell (yes, he is the father of Tony Caldwell for those of you who know, the famous climber who climbed Yosemite's El Capitan) was the highlight of our trip. The trip was amazing, the weather was perfect, and we got a chance to see those crazy skiers doing the downhill ski from the top of... More

Trout fishing up small streams up a mountain was pretty breathtaking. Our guide was helpful and very nice to deal with. Very impressed!

The shop made sure we were will prepared for the hike with great snow boots and snoeshows all included in the price. Additionally, our guide Mike went above and beyond by loaning... More

Wonderful place to get geared up for fun in the national park. I rented snowshoes and poles for only $6/day. They worked great and I really liked how helpful the staff was. Checkout was quick and easy. The shop offers any items that a hiker may need. I purchased a sweet pair of warm winter gloves for only $20! This... More

We've rented snowshoes and sleds to enjoy the winter activities at the park. Everybody in the shop was helpful and nice. Told us we didn't really need any snowshoes for the trail we planned to do - we highly appreciate the honesty! When we asked for an advice where to go snowshoeing we were advised to a great place.
