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
Christmas is just a few short days away--have you finished your
holiday shopping? Chances are, there are still a few more presents
to buy and a few more names to check off that list. While you may
feel frantically low on time, you can take a deep breath because
we've got you covered with a list of gifts that anyone and everyone
will love. Whether you need one last present for your spouse, or a
Secret Santa gift for your co-worker, or a little token of
gratitude for your mailman... these gifts are sure to please. Run
in, pick one out, and get right back to all that wrapping you still
need to do!
On the smaller shelves in between our skis, bikes, boats and
tents, you'll find some items that aren't quite as big but are just
as important for outdoor exploration. If you're looking to fill
spaces inside your kids' stockings, or looking for one last
additional item to top a pile of presents for a loved one, we've
got everything you need and more to make their smiles a little bit
bigger this holiday season.
Everyone has a different approach to winter. Some of us live for
snow and like to spend all day at the mountain, while others are
more interested in staying warm inside and waiting for summer to
return. No matter how you do winter, everyone can agree that
there's nothing better than curling up by the fire at the end of a
long day and getting comfortable and warm with family and friends.
While we may be Fairfield County's top pick for adventure gear, we
are also experts in comfort. In addition to all the equipment you
need to fuel your adrenaline out on the mountain, we also have your
apres-ski gear to hunker down and relax at the end of a chilly
winter day... or for the entire day!
We've got all the bases covered this holiday season so you can get
all your holiday shopping done under one roof. For the people on
your list who love the outdoors, we have equipment, apparel, and
accessories to help fuel their passion this winter and beyond. In
addition, we have everyday items perfect for those who prefer to
take it easy at the holidays, from cozy knits to fluffy footwear.
Here are just a few of the items we recommend to put smiles on
everyone's face this holiday season.
Last winter lacked a little in the snow department, but El Nino is
long gone and we can't wait for the return of winter! Last
February we got a sneak preview of the 2017 skis at our Demo Days up in
Vermont, where we tested every single model to determine which skis
our customers would love the most. These new skis are officially
ready and waiting on our sales floor, and we've put together a
quick overview of the ones we are most excited about. It't time to
start planning your winter adventures--we'll see you at the
