We've been online for a long, long time. We started the idea of Mountains Plus way back in 1995 back when Yahoo was 'old school' grey with blue links and Amazon was this 'new' site where you could buy books from some dude named Jeff who was shipping them out of his garage and making $20,000/week. It was the Wild West in many ways and we had to build everything we had and learn everything along the way. While we weren't the first (sportsgeardirect.com was) to take the idea of selling outdoor gear to the internet...but we're pretty darn sure we were the Second.
We were one of Camelbak's first dealers (back when they were FastTrak systems out of TX) and we've seen many brands come and go in the nearly 15 years we've braved the wild and wooly world of outdoor e-commerce.
In all this time we've learned that there are really two things that matter when you buy outdoor equipment: how you feel when you buy it and how you feel when you use it.
We are 100% DEDICATED to making sure you feel great doing both!
We love spending time in the outdoors having fun adventures, and always wondering what's over that next ridge. And we're always looking for cool new gear that might add to the experience. But remember it's the experience, not just the gear, that matters in the end.
We alpine ski, cross-country, snowboard, cyclocross race, kayak, hike, backpack, camp and just about anything else that gets us out of the office and breathing fresh clean air. Just like you, we don't want to max out our credit cards and empty our wallets to buy all the tools to take part in our favorite outdoor adventures. On the other hand, duct tape can only go so far!
This means that you will often end up talking to or corresponding with an actual human being. We don't outsource our call center but, instead, we have a small, dedicated team who can help you with the products and answer questions about fit, sizing, use etc. so that, in the end you are truly able to enjoy the products you buy. Our team will bend over backwards to make sure that you receive the service you deserve.
We offer top selling gear from respected brands like; Atlas Snowshoes, Big Agnes Tents and Sleeping Bags, Crescent Moon Snowshoes, SRAM Components, Osprey Backpacks, Gregory Backpacks, Black Diamond, Inov-8 Trail Running Shoes and Packs, MSR Tents, Snowshoes and Stoves, GoPro Cameras, NEMO Equipment, Arc'teryx backpacks and many more. We recommend the gear that WE use and the products that WE actually enjoy. In other words, we don't just hock the "latest and greatest" trendy products Instead, we have hardcore outdoor folks who pony up their expertise to find gear that really matters...not fluff! So, please feel free to look around. If you don't find what you are looking for, send us email, let us know what you want and we'll do our best to have it for the next time you're here. It's always great to hear from our customers and find out about a new product that we haven't tried yet.
Thank you for stopping by and we hope you enjoy your visit.
