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. 

New Farrier Road Bikes for Kids


Cycling is unique in the world of sports; it's something you can do for your entire life. Cycling is low impact, keeps you in shape, and is a great way to see new places. Cycling is also the perfect way for the whole family to get out and enjoy the outdoors. We now stock Farrier road bikes for kids, so the family can enjoy longer rides together.

Go Anywhere With an Inflatable SUP


One of the hardest parts about SUP is that they can be hard to store and transport. Inflatable SUPs are the solution to these problems. They are easy to store, since you can deflate them and fold them down to a very small foot print. You can store them in closets, garages, cars, and even on your boat. Transporting them is just as easy, since they get small enough to put into a duffel bag or large backpack. You can easily travel with them and take a SUP with you on a plane, cruise, or even on your back on your next adventure.


We Always Install For Free


At Outdoor Sports Center, we offer professional car rack installation, free of charge, on every rack system that we sell. Other shops will charge you for this service, but no one around has the decades of experience installing car racks that we have. We send our employees to Thule's USA headquaters to learn rack installation directly from the people that engineered the racks. We will guarantee the most professional setup, and we beat any price that you can find on the internet or at other big chain stores.
