“Huge selection, name brands, great prices!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

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.

“Overly aggressive sales staff”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

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.

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

“Fly Fishing and Downhill Bike Tour”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Our family of 5 adults did a fly fishing trip with Estes Park Mountain Shop. It was a great experience with knowledgeable guides. We each caught at least one fish with about 8 total and and hooked up on probably 12 or more. Great fun!

We also did the downhill bike tour from the top of Trail Ridge with New Venture through Estes Park Mountain Shop. Another great experience with a great guide. Don't miss it.

I highly recommend both!

“Frustrating Bike Rental Experience”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Family rental for bikes for 4 hours ($25 per bike for the 4 hours plus $3 for the lock - helmets included). Took almost an hour from the time we arrived until we actually hit the bike path - no, they were not busy. This included a delay, having to check in downstairs to pay upstairs to go back downstairs to get the bikes. Got about 500 feet and had to bring one of the bikes back due to a loose seat. No real map or direction provided. Not their fault but the bike path is kind of dull - do recommend riding by the dog part if you're a dog-lover and check out the dam. Also, do recommend renting the lock. As you approach town you can not ride so suggest locking up, grabbing a snack and continuing on. At the risk of sounding "whiny," the seats were not padded at all which made for a very uncomfortable ride and sore behinds afterwards, You would think a shop like that would put the gel/padded seats on the bikes.

“Climbing and fishing”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

I can not explain how great our day was. One son went climbing and I went fly fishing with my 3 other sons. They made everything easy and were very flexible to work with. they even allowed my wife to tag along to take pictures. The staff was very knowlegable and I feel I received an education on fly fishing that will last a life time. I personally worked with Johnathen and he proved to be enthsusiastic and very knowlegable guide.
