Our Story:

Over 50 years ago John and Sidney Maxwell founded a company called The Ski Hut, in Wilton Center, as a way to share their family's  passion for skiing with the community. In 1983 their son, Jack Maxwell changed our name to Outdoor Sports Center, and moved us to 80 Danbury Road in Wilton. The name and location change was part Jack's dream to share his enthusiasm and philosophy; to help grow and nurture respect for the outdoors by using it as our playground. Today, we are still 100% family owned, many of our staff have been with us for 15 years or more, and we are proud to have customers that can recall our "Ski Hut" heritage.

Our commitment remains to promote a friendly and knowledgeable community, to provide only the best gear and service, and to always promote awareness of outdoor resources through their use as a playground.

Get Outfitted for Your Next Adventure

06/09/2014

The beauty of adventure lies in the unexpected; that doesn't mean you can go un-prepared. While you can't always plan for everything when you're traveling, backpacking, or camping, having the right equipment can mean the difference between the experience of a lifetime or a trip gone wrong. Don't let an uncomfortable pair of boots or an ill-fitting pack get in the way of that bucket list adventure you've been dreaming of for so long.
