Great people. Really helpful. They take the time to get you the right equipment. Flexible and willing to adjust during the season based on skill. Fair pricing and availability of equipment.
Super friendly shop with heaps of gear.They even let you use their workshop. The shop is funky and crammed with gear, just like a snow shop should be! Everyone at the shop is super friendly and will really work with you to find gear, or just let you browse while you check out the killer graphics on the LibTech boards. They put service first and are genuinely concerned with making sure you leave their shop with the right gear for your needs.
Always helpful and reasonably priced. The ladies stayed late and got our Thule snowpack racks installed for free.Original recommendation
This is long so here's the summary - Mountain to Sound is outstanding. Shop local.Original recommendation
This shop and all the employees I met really know their stuff, but they weren't intimidating to a newbie like me. I have a very small foot, so they only had a few pairs of adult boots for me to try on in the store, but Nate wrote out a list of other options he would recommend for me. It's clear they want you to have what is best for you, even when it's not in their store at the moment. Then, they remembered my name after the first time came in, answered all my questions, gave me a rental for the day (and put the cost towards my final purchase) since I couldn't decide which skis to buy, and when I did FINALLY decide they were able to turn around the skis on the same day so I could go skiing the next day. Nate is amazing - get your boot fitting from him! He not only fits the boot, but explains the reasons why the fit matters, what is different about each boot, the science of it. Now I not only have a great fitting pair of boots, but I am also informed about it. Two other women helped me pick skis (over two different visits) and they were both knowledgeable, helpful, and encouraging. It's clear that the outdoors is their personal passion and they just want you to have a great experience at their store and with their equipment.
Final Note: I love shopping local and this company proves that shopping local shouldn't compromise quality, customer service, price, or experience.
I just had a great experience buying my first touring kayak. Heather was very patient, thorough and helpful carefully explaining the advantages and disadvantages of different pieces of equipment and asking questions to be sure I was getting the right kayak and gear for my needs. I highly recommend Mountain to Sound Outfitters if you're in the market for a kayak!Original recommendation
They are so smart. Do you need to know about kayaks or SUPs? Yep. How about Racks for your car? Yep. Maybe some custom Ski Boots. Yep.Original recommendation
Everything you'd want in a local ski shop. They do the job right and fast. Once I took a pair of dynafits in to be mounted and they borrowed a jig from another shop. Full of friendly, helpful people.Original recommendation
