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.

How To: Bike to Work


May 12-18th is Bike to Work Week, ending on National Bike to Work Day, Friday the 18th. We're all for ditching the car to get out and pump our pedals, so Outdoor Sports Center employees have pledged to ride a total of NN miles on Bike to Work Day.

If you're looking to join the cause and don't have a bike or your commute is long, consider checking out an E-Bike, like the Specialized Turbo Vado 6.0. It has 3 boost settings, meaning it’ll make your commute a breeze and get you to the office on time. Built-in powerful headlights in the front and rear means cars will be able to see you on the road even if you have late nights at the office.  Whether you’re riding through the trail or on the road, the Turbo Vado 6.0 can conquer both. Plus, climbing a dreaded hill is a breeze with its assisted pedaling.

To help you have a safe commute, we've put together 5 helpful tips for Bike to Work Day below.
